Comment: I heard that Domino's Pizza had to remove "The Noid" commercials
becuase some person with the last name Noid thought the ads were mocking
him and then he held two Domino's employees hostage unilt the agree to
make him a pizza and remove the commercials. Is this true?

Wikipedia agrees this incident happened, but it wasn't the reason for the end of the Noid.

quote:
Contrary to popular belief, this incident did not cause Domino's to pull the "Noid" campaign off the air; rather, Will Vinton Studios asked for a larger amount of money for continued use of the Noid character, and Domino's chose not to renew their contract.
