The little-known Toppers pizza chain is taking the ridiculously familiar strategy of irritating its much-larger competitor. Here’s a sample of a video of a Domino’s truck posted to the Topper’s Facebook page:

Domino’s did the predictable big company thing and filed a cease and desist for using Domino’s imagery in their ads and posts. Yeah, I get it, but this storyline comes *directly* form the Guerrilla Marketing playbook. You’d think Fortune 500s would get it by now.
