OK, here’s some food truck #branding we can get behind. Taking a page from last year’s Arrested Development banana stand promotion, Netflix is rolling out a “Crazy Pyes” food truck that will hand out free fruit-flavored pies and free chocolate and vanilla swirl cones this week around Manhattan and Brooklyn. Crazy Pyes is of course a nod to Crazy Eyes (played by the great Uzo Aduba), who wifed up Piper in season 1, and dropped the famous “I threw my pie for you” line. Also Crazy Eyes (aka Suzanne. She’s a person, people) has a great back story in season 2. So far at least! I’m only on episode 4 so don’t ruin anything even though I’m ashamed at how long it’s taking me. Find the truck at these locations below, Dandelion.
