ABC continues to throw its marketing weight behind quirky drama Pushing Daisies, this time by hitting the road. An Airstream trailer modeled after The Pie Hole set will be setting off on a ten-city tour and allowing visitors to sample free pie, get a close-up glimpse of props from the series, and watch footage from the show on plasma TV screens. Waitresses on whimsically decorated daisy bicycles will direct people to the restaurant prior to the event.
Free pie! What could be better than that? Well, maybe if said pie was served by series stars Lee Pace or Anna Friel, but this is pretty cool, too. Guests will also have the opportunity to snag Pushing Daisies magnets, pie-cutters and spatulas. Ooooo, I want a Pie Hole spatula.
A special web site has been set up (or, will be set up, since it’s not online yet) at PushingDaisiesTour.com to chart the mobile Pie Hole’s progress and offer daisy messages that can be sent to friends online.
