    That's just disgusting. Not the fact what they did, the fact how they behaved. Pure disrespect.

    I don't consider the act of that ******* to be just a prank or a joke!

    Anyone that tampers with the food of innocent people, should not only get fired, they should also be charged with a criminal act.

    In my view, that guy is not only committing just an act of terrorism against the Domino's Pizza chain Name, but also an act of possible terrorism against the Domino's Pizza customers that may get infected with any venereal disease that the ******* may have, specially after what he did on the 3rd video by wiping his bare ass, and then using that sponge on the sink dishes.

    Btw, I like Domino's Pizza, and I will still buy Domino's Pizza, I would not give in into *******s like that, that for one reason or another have nothing better to do than to try to tarnish the reputation of a food chain, just because one ******* did what he did.

    I just hope this ******* mother, sister, wife or daughter, don't get a similar, or worse tainted food from a similar or equal food chain store one of this days, because what goes around, comes around...

    That's gross. I used to work for them in Canada and never experienced anyhting but professional conduct from my fellow employees and manager. That behavior wouldn't have been tolerated.

    Hi bibby,

    Since you quoted my post, and replied what you did, now you have me wondering about what you consider "gross", ...

    My post, or what that guy did?

    The problem isn't only with Dominos. Google "dirty restaurant kitchens" or "restaurant horror stories," watch Gordon Ramsay's "Kitchen Nightmares" or listen to war stories from servers or kitchen staff from any type of restaurant. It's not only chain restaurants, top restaurants also have their share of disgruntled staff who take it out on the food or simply have poorly run kitchens with unsanitary conditions and rotting food being served to customers.

    Too bad for Dominos that this is attached to their name. This can happen at any food place, it has nothing to do with the Domino name brand. Companies are made up of people just like you and me and the next guy on the street.

    I too hope these people are held accountable for their criminal actions.

    That happens at almost all chains google any fast food chain and put the word caught on tape and you will see. The people who commit such acts should be put in jail at least 6 months have a fine and perform community service and never be allowed in the food business again.

    I heard on the news the restaurant was in North Carolina and the participants had already been fired. When caught of course they said they were sorry and it was just a joke and the food was never sent out to customers. Dominos is pursuing legal action for damages against the company.

    As others have mentioned this is not uncommon, sadly the video taping and posting of stupid restaurant employees started 10 miles away from me in Xenia Ohio with the "Burger King Bather" last year.

    I'm concerned that the people doing this are more concerned with gaining the 'instant celebrity' that comes with the videos than they are with the long term consequences of their actions. Of course, that may be a general problem that our entire country is facing.

    I'm with you Sal.

    That could be any restaurant. I worked in restaurant equipment supply in college and have seen behind the scenes in many restaurants. If you think about sanitation you would never eat out so don't think about it and enjoy.

    There is a lot of socialist/atheist after Domino's because the owner is Catholic. ACLU is after him because he wants to build a giant church in the middle of a town that he wants to build from the ground up so other Catholics can live around other Catholics.

    That's horrible! you know it happens sometimes I guess, we all speak of it, but it's horrible to see. Hopefully they have trouble getting jobs if the video circulates enough!

    That being said, the marketing or pr staff that put that video together should be immediately dismissed. The video is basically an apology, which in and of itself is fine. But one of the first things you learn as a child is when you apologize, look the person in the eye and let them know you mean it. The p.r. / marketing people put the teleprompter or cue cards or whatever was used so high and to the right of the camera the president couldn't read them and at least appear to be looking directly at the camera being as sincere as I'm sure he wanted to be.

    Dominos Pizza really didn't do anything to cause this situation, other than they hired people who turned out to be stupid, sometimes that happens. The mistakes they did make were not immediately responding in the same venues that the discussion was taking place and allowing it to get out of hand. Then they followed up with the "I'm not looking at you" video. Hopefully other corporations can take a lesson from all this on how not to handle a controversy like this and be prepared with an action plan if/when it happens to them.

    You're so right! The brightest bulbs aren't always in operation at PR/marketing firms. Remember the Aqua Teen Hunger Force promo in Boston where an LED toy was placed in public places that looked like a bomb? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2007_Boston_bomb_scare. The Domino response vid is just another example of a grievous lapse of basic common sense. Many consumers seem to be singling out Domino Pizza which I find as lacking in common sense. These 2 employees were stupid enough to make a vid. I hate to say it, but these idiots may have been an inspiration for low-paid restaurant/fast food workers everywhere...but who won't make a vid.
