With more than 4,700 locations around the world, the restaurant has also been attached to a number of political controversies, surrounding company policy and founder John Schnatter’s public comments.

    History

    On October 2nd, 1984, John Schnatter founded the first Papa John’s Pizza by selling pizza out of a converted broom closet at Schnatter’s father’s tavern, Mick’s Lounge, in Jeffersonville, Indiana. Schnatter infamously sold his 1971 Camaro Z28 for $1,600 to purchase the materials to start the company. In 2009, he found the long-lost camaro and purchased the car back for $250,000.[9]

    In 2001, Papa John’s became the first pizza chain to offer national online ordering. Six years later, it became the first chain to offer SMS text message ordering.

However, they claim to have taken some NFL-related advertising off the air.

    “We expect it to persist unless a solution is put in place,” said Papa John’s President and Chief Operating Officer Steve Ritchie.

    The following day, Pizza Hut, who has no affiliation with he NFL, reported a 1% sales growth in the past year.[2] Yum Brands CEO, the owner of Pizza Hut, Taco Bell and KFC, commented, "We’re not seeing any impact from any of that.[3]

The first tweet[5] (shown below, left) read, “Us: 🍕📈 / Them: 🍕📉” and received more than 15,000 retweets and 53,000 likes in 24 hours. DiGorno replied to this tweet with a parody of Papa John’s slogan that read, “Better Pizza. Better Sales.” The tweet (shown below, center) received more than 8,000 retweets and 25,000 likes in 24 hours. Finally, DiGorno tweeted,[6]“Update: 📉📉📉📉📉📉📉📉📉📉📉📉📉📉📉📉📉📉📉📉📉📉📉📉📉📉📉📉📉📉📉📉📉📉📉📉📉📉📉📉📉📉📉📉📉📉📉📉📉📉📉📉📉📉📉📉📉📉📉📉📉📉📉📉📉📉📉📉📉📉📉📉📉📉📉📉📉📉📉📉📉📉📉📉📉📉📉📉📉📉📉📉📉📉📉📉📉📉📉📉📉📉📉📉📉📉📉📉📉📉📉📉📉📉📉📉📉📉📉📉📉📉📉📉📉📉📉📉📉📉📉📉” The final tweet (shown below, right) received more than 2,600 retweets and 11,000 likes in 24 hours.

  • About
    Ultra instinct is a new form of Goku in the ongoing anime series Dragon ball Super believed to be attained by only gods of destruction after rigorous training and persistence, The ongoing saga pits Goku against a new fighter named Jiren, a virtual monster able to overpower Goku while in his Blue form. The power from ultra instinct is able to match Jiren in fighting power and speed. unlike his previous forms however, this seems to come with a different level of skill added as he avoids punches instead of blocking them and has a more serious demeanor, Said by his friends that he was moving “Far differently then regular Goku does”
    The purpose of the form seems to be avoiding danger without the user needing to think about it, The body moves on its own in response to danger for the user to focus on fighting.

    Origin
    Before its reveal, Ultra instinct goku was known as Limit breaker Goku by fans of Dragon ball super after a teaser image was
    Spread about, however even before that back in april of 2017, it was known to be “Super Saiyan Beyond” based on a comment made by one of the people working on the series ( @Toshio916 )

    This second image is what spurred calling it “Super Saiyan Beyond” Due to the use of Beyond in his twitter post here.

    This final image is Lord Beerus mentioning the name of what he thinks this new form just might actually be, Being a form known only to the gods untill this moment, Many of his own gods even doubted his remark claiming that ultra instinct should be out of the reach of mortals.

    The initial reveal was made here, During this time is when goku’s new form was being known as Limit breaker. Showing off goku’s new form having a reveal date of 10/8/2017. Making a 1 hour special (Which was really just two episodes released at once) Alongside a one peice movie as a double promotion.

    The main time the action began was here. During episode 109 is when the initial fight began. Episode 110 being when the form is finally attained (This video combines the scenes between both episodes.)

    Which garnered world wide attention from every dragon ball fan, Spurring endless reaction videos to the action packed episodes from a long overdue and awaited two episodes.

    Use as a meme
    Ultra instinct has been initiated into a meme status from the sudden change in form. Being utilized over small fights or movie scenes as a blue smokey effect put ontop of the protagonist in any fight scene. The part that initiated the internet’s response can be seen here.
    .
    The music and the punching sounds (even some of the speach) Can be heard in the main notable examples.
