Despite recent claims on the internet, Chuck E. Cheese wants diners to know their pizzas are never made up from reheated slices left on the table. In a video titled, “Investigating Conspiracies with Shane Dawson,” the YouTube star makes the outlandish recycling claim based on his childhood experience at the restaurant, plus “confirmation” from a former employee he knew in high school.
Dawson racked up eight million views in the first 24 hours (14 million as of Wednesday morning) after posting his “investigation” on Monday, earning himself a response from the company. Calling the claims, “unequivocally false,” Chuck E. Cheese told E! News, “No conspiracies here – our pizzas are made to order and we prepare our dough fresh in restaurant, which means that they’re not always perfectly uniform in shape, but always delicious.”
