On Friday night, the Don Draper at Little Caesars' marketing department apparently decided to get in on March Madness and made a bet on Twitter: If a bottom-seeded team beat a No. 1 seed that night, the pizza chain would offer everyone in the country a free Hot-N-Ready lunch combo.

Of course, the chances of this actually happening were slim to none. Yet against the odds, the University of Maryland-Baltimore County defeated the University of Virginia, becoming the first bottom-seeded men’s tournament team ever to defeat a top-seeded team in the first round.



So now Little Caesars owes us all lunch.


Per the terms of the promotion, the pizza chain will offer four deep dish slices and a single 20-ounce Pepsi beverage between 11:30 a.m. and 1 p.m. on Monday, April 2 at participating U.S. Little Caesars locations across the country. The offer cannot be redeemed online or through delivery, and orders must be placed before 1 p.m. the same day. You can read the fine print here.




Honestly, we probably all owe the University of Maryland-Baltimore County Retrievers lunch after all this.
