OREM — When you order pizza for a quiet night in, you probably don't expect it to arrive with a horse-drawn carriage and fireworks.
More than 80 musicians helped surprise three families in Orem with an epic Christmas concert on their doorstep on a Tuesday evening. The families all ordered Triple Treat Box deliveries from Pizza Hut, which posted videos of the event on its YouTube channel and Facebook page Wednesday.
The deliveries seem typical at first, as one person approaches the door with a pizza, but things deviate from the norm when the delivery person starts singing and a hand bell choir walks up behind her. Soon more carolers arrive and a horse-drawn carriage pulls up with a brass band. Local rock band Coral Bones drove up for the grand finale, closing the performance with a light show and fireworks.
"That was the most legit thing that's happened in my life," one girl who was surprised said in a behind the scenes video.
The musicians spent several weeks preparing for the stunt, according to Pizza Hut. The video features performers from the Utah Valley Hand Bell Ringers, the Warner Chapel Music Group, the Hill Top United Methodist Choir, the Salt Lake Mass Choir, the Lehi High School Brass Band, plus soloist Whitney Kimball. The horse-drawn carriages were from American Fork's Burch and Sons.
