Dos Equis Made An Extra Long Cooler To Help Drinkers Stay 6 Feet Apart

Summer has officially begun and while many of the activities that beer drinkers look forward to during the warmer months have been canceled as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic, beer brands are looking for ways to encourage some of the lower-risk summer pastimes.

With that in mind, Dos Equis created a cooler to help. It’s six feet long, so you can invite your friends over for a cold one, and then keep them at a safe distance on the other end of the cooler. The “Seis-Foot Cooler,” as the brand has dubbed it, was available on a first come, first served basis to anyone who purchased a Dos Equis and sent the receipt to the brand on June 26.

Shaquille O’Neal And Papa John’s Release ‘Shaq-A-Roni’ Pizza 

On Monday, Papa John’s and Shaquille O’Neal announced the launch of a pizza designed by the basketball legend himself.

The “Shaq-a-Roni” pizza is an extra-large pizza with extra cheese and extra pepperoni cut into eight slices instead of the usual ten, featuring what Papa John’s describes as its “largest slice size to date.”

“It was important to me for the Shaq-a-Roni to be bigger than just pizza. By giving my new pie a try, one dollar will be donated to The Papa John’s Foundation for Building Community to support COVID-19 relief, the fight against racial injustice, Boys & Girls Clubs of America, UNCF (United Negro College Fund) and general community involvement,” O’Neal said in the press release.

The pizza chain will donate one dollar for every pizza sold to the Papa John’s Foundation through August 23.

O’Neal joined the board of directors at Papa John’s in March 2019, when the chain announced a three-year $8.25 million endorsement deal with the former athlete. O’Neal also announced his investment in nine Papa John’s restaurants. The “Shaq-a-Roni” pizza’s release comes just three months after the anniversary of the endorsement deal.

If you’re thinking that the “Shaq-a-Roni” pizza just looks like a big pepperoni pizza without an edge crust cut into eight slices instead of ten, you’d be wrong. Each order of a “Shaq-a-Roni” pizza also comes with a Snapchat augmented-reality experience, which Papa John’s describes as a “3-D surprise.” Guests can access the AR experience by scanning the QR code on the pizza box in Snapchat.
