Jimmy honours viral video 'hero'

Friday, June 21, 2019

American talk show host Jimmy Kimmel, on his show last Tuesday, honoured a restaurant worker for catching a pizza dropped by a colleague. The video of the everyday incident, which subsequently went viral, earned over 7 million views for the worker, Cristian Valadez, an assistant manager at a pizza place in California. Calling Cristian the “Sully Sullenberger of pizza,” referring to the pilot who safely crash-landed an airliner on the Hudson River in 2009. Kimmel presented him with a crown and golden gloves for his “magic fingers” as well as a Nobel Pizza Prize medal and a bunch of pepperoni roses – besides naming the day, 18 June, in his honour. Kimmel described what Valadez did as “magical” and asked Valadez whether he had received a call from the President or an invitation to the White House! He then asked the Toppers Pizza employee, which actor he would like to have play him “when they eventually make a movie about this”. To which, Cristian sportingly replied: “Tom Hanks”. Then Kimmel added tongue-firmly-in-cheek, that celebrations were taking place around the world in honour of Cristian’s feat – in Croatia, in the Philippines, in Spain, in North Korea and Thailand. Hmmm…so is this an indication, perhaps, of just how much Americans adore pizza?
