Famous dead rose from the grave and danced on the graves under the "Thriller" Michael Jackson. Provocative advertising campaign displeased New Zealanders and a protest from the Hillary family.

Son of the first conqueror of Everest - Peter Hillary - called Hell Pizza advertisement sample "extremely bad taste," adding that he did not think such a ridiculous way to use his late father. Hell Pizza representatives said they were not going to insult the family of Hillary, but decided to withdraw advertising.

Using images of Ledger's and Hillary, who died in 2008, and the Queen Mother, who died in 2002, is not the first example of a provocative advertising policy network Hell Pizza.
