Papa John’s is celebrating a new limited-edition menu addition by catapulting pizza lovers into an alien world full of cheese, fashion and chorizo.

‘Planet Chorizo’ sees a woman sitting on her bed watching TV before being transported to another dimension. The trippy surroundings are amplified with meaty flowers, and the woman meets unique-looking aliens, who all munch on the spicy snack.

As the spot closes, the galactic tourist is given a box of pizza and transported back to her room. Was it all a vivid dream due to the overconsumption of cheese? I guess viewers will never know.

The campaign plays on the recent popularity of shows such as Euphoria and Sex Education.
