Domino’s Pizza is gearing up for its biggest night of the year this Sunday with the Super Bowl. But that didn’t stop the restaurant from taking notice of a story told by Ed Sheeran Wednesday night during an interview on “The Ralphie Show” about an act of kindness displayed by One Direction’s Harry Styles.
“I saw (Harry) in LA about three months ago,” recalled Sheeran. “He had a day off and he went out… and spent like two or three grand on Domino’s Pizzas and drove around for the whole day just giving it to homeless people.”
Chris Brandon, a spokesperson for Domino’s, expressed the company’s gratitude for Harry’s actions on “The Ralphie Show” Thursday night.
“All we really want to say though is, thank you to Harry for involving us in such a cool thing that he did,” Brandon said via telephone. “My understanding is that Harry and One Direction have plenty of fans so I’m not sure if they need many more but they certainly gained a bunch more today from us here at Domino’s.”
Brandon noted the restaurant was not just impressed with Styles’ actions, but how he went about his work of charity.
“It sounds like Harry kind of didn’t do this for publicity or kind of do this so that everybody would find out,” Brandon noted. “We kind of found out the same way everybody else has.”
Brandon added that Domino’s was “honored and flattered” by Styles choosing the pizza chain for help in his gesture.
