    Say goodbye to your summer body!

    To mark their 80th birthday, Krispy Kreme will be selling a dozen of its original glazed doughnuts for only 80 cents this Friday.

    The company publicized the promotion on Twitter, posting a video of the NBA legend Shaquille O’Neal, who owns a Krispy Kreme store in Atlanta, surprising customers with the news.

    The discounted doughtnuts will be sold at participating Krispy Kreme stories across the U.S. and Canada, though they're only available to people who buy a regular-price dozen as well.

    “The joy created by our Original Glazed doughnut and its secret recipe spans generations, and that is certainly something to celebrate,” said Chief Marketing Officer Jackie Woodward said in a statement.
