Domino’s was well known for its advertisements featuring a character called the Noid, created by Group 243 Inc. who hired Will Vinton Studios to produce the television commercials that featured the character. The first advertisement of the Dominos was published in 1985 in the newspaper. One of the Advertisements which was published in Bangalore was Dominos your new 3 A.M. friend. The catchphrase associated with the commercials was “Avoid the Noid.” The Noid was discontinued after Kenneth Lamar Noid, believing the mascot to be an imitation of him, held two Domino’s employee’s hostage in Chamblee, Georgia. The employees escaped while Noid ate a pizza he had ordered. Noid was eventually diagnosed with paranoid schizophrenia and acquitted due to insanity, and later committed suicide. The Noid was briefly brought back for a week in 2011 in an arcade-style game on the Domino’s Facebook page. The person with the top score received a coupon for a free pizza.
