here’s a personal story on the subject of Pushing Daisies:
For the premiere of the second season, they did this promotional “pie tour” where they set up in different areas with a trailer made up like the Pie Hole, gave away mini pies, had trivia contests, etcetc. One of the locations was at Downtown Disney, which was relatively close to me so I went.
Unfortunately, by that time PD kinda fell by the wayside and a lot of people didn’t really know about it, so not a lot of people showed up. It was still fun, just kinda lackluster since it was just a handful of people in a big ol’ parking lot (and it was kinda hidden, so passersby couldn’t see the gathering to be interested, very poor planning)
So by the end of it, as they were packing to go, they were like “OK, we need to get rid of all these leftover pies” so they just let anyone take as much pie as they wanted.
Long story short, we took home like 30 mini pies and it took up half the fridge
