Delicious Capitalism!

This is a 1997 Pizza Hut ad starring Mikhail Gorbachev (and his granddaughter). It pretty much suggests that communism is wack because you can't have pizza when you're a communist.
Read more about Little Czar's Pizza (HA!) at CNN.

From CNN:
" is a special kind of food, Gorbachev says, because it does what he always wanted to do: It brings people together. "It's an important part of life," he said. "It's not only consumption, it's also socializing. If I didn't see that it was beneficial for people, I wouldn't have agreed to it."

"Sergei Tatosyan, the manager of the Moscow eatery where the ad was filmed, said it will not be shown in Russia, where Gorbachev is still widely disliked and blamed for the 1991 Soviet downfall."
