Remember ordering a pizza on a landline? If so, chances are you remember Pizza Hut’s iconic delivery driver – Dougie.

Back in the 90’s, Dougie (played by Diarmid Heidenreich) was Australia’s most famous pizza delivery driver, and now he’s back and ready to break a few more hearts.

If you loved Dougie as much as we did, then you’d be pleased to know that he’s making a comeback in the form of Pizza Hut’s brand spankin’ news ads.

Oh, and before you ask, no, he’s not delivering pizzas anymore.


The iconic character is helping the chain launch their new ‘Hot Dot delivered hot or the next one’ is free promotion. It’s their promise to you that when you order a Pizza Hut delivery, it will arrive at the optimum temperature for your tastebuds – deliciously hot.

Um, can this day get any better?
