TOKYO, Sept. 5 (UPI) -- Domino's pizza celebrated the 25th anniversary of its first Japanese store by announcing plans -- likely in jest -- to open the moon's first fast-food eatery.

Scott K. Oelkers, president of the Japanese wing of Domino's, appeared in an astronaut costume in an online video touting the "Moon Branch Project" plans to his "fellow Earthlings" as a "giant leap for all of mankind," the Los Angeles Times reported Monday.

The project's Web site, moon.dominos.jp, outlines the plans, including a breakdown of its $21.7 billion cost and a mock-up of the proposed lunar restaurant with a playroom and a training gym.
