Papa John’s is having a nightmare situation unfold in some markets on some channels. Commercials for the NFL’s official pizza chain are airing that congratulate the Seahawks on becoming back to back Super Bowl champions. Whoops.
This Vine was recorded from the Esquire Network on Monday Night.
Well, that’s not ideal. Other Twitter users from a wide variety of markets are apparently seeing the same ad pop up.

Someone made a huge mistake. Cue up the tweets about a vast conspiracy against the Patriots and the NFL wanting the Seahawks to win.
