A post on Facebook promises users three large pizzas from the popular pizza chain simply for commenting and sharing the post. According to the promotion, Little Caesars is celebrating its 61st birthday by giving away food.

The post has received 54,000 comments and over 132,000 shares, which implies that a lot of people really want some free pizza.
