A new Pizza Hut commercial has taken a comical angle out of the U-S First Lady's prospective but yet to be declared run for the Senate seat in New York.
But Hillary Clinton's political team is calling an investigation into why one of New York Senate candidate Rudolph Giuliani's campaign backers is on the Pizza company's board.
The U-S First Lady has never lived or worked in New York, but Pizza Hut has taken a new interest in her love of "all things New York" to help sell their new pizza.
This is the new television commercial by the Pizza giant that has taken a comical slice out of Hillary Rodham Clinton's political interest in the big apple.
The advertisement comes as the she prepares for a possible run for the Senate seat of New York.
But the Clinton political team was not so amused at the latest advertising ploy and quickly pointed out that a billionaire backer of Hillary Clinton's Republican opponent, Mayor Rudolph Giuliani, is on the board of Pizza Hut's parent company.
Giuliani helped unveil the New York pizza campaign earlier this year and Democrats say the latest advertising commercial is an illegal contribution and are demanding an investigation.
"I don't imagine that New Yorkers are going to appreciate being lectured to by a Dallas company about New York pizza."

However Guiliani's team denies any foul play.
"The mayor enjoying pizza and Pizza Hut trying to sell pizza ....I think that's about the only connection people can point to."

Pizza Hut defends the television commercial as "tongue in cheek fun" and plans to launch the commercial during Saturday's World Series baseball match in New York.
This food fight is the latest political pitting that the two rivals who've sparred over a number of hot topics.
