I stumble into town just like a sacred cow

nablopomo2008color.jpgThere is a Taco Bell commercial running on TV now that makes me less desirous of eating Taco Bell with every consecutive viewing. Basically the message that I get from this commercial is "Eating Taco Bell makes you stupid." I wish I could find the commercial on YouTube to embed it - if anyone can find it, let me know!

It involves three friends at some sort of ranch. One of the friends has climbed into a pen with a raging bull, and is calling for the other two to rescue him. Since neither of them wants to, they decide to have an nacho eat-off where the first person to find a chip with no taco-stuff on it has to go save the friend.

My first problem is this: In what realm of reality would it ever occur to anyone to make a bet based on who would be the first to have no taco-stuff on their nacho chip? For one thing, you can redistribute the taco-stuff so that EVERY chip has something on it. For another thing, just NO. Who would come up with this idea in the first place? WTF?

My second problem is this: What is the second guy into the pen going to do to rescue the first guy?

My third problem is this: Hey idiot in the bull's pen: Just get out. Climb out. The bull will not be able to follow you. Are you running around in circles in the hope that the bull will get tired or suffer from cardiac arrest?

Also annoying, Taco Bell commercials in which the food talks. I've noticed Arby's doing this recently too. I do not want to eat your stupid talking food.

I really like your analysis of this ad. I have not seen it.

The problem I have with Taco Bell, as much as I love their regular tacos, is thier obsession with fake cheese. They HAVE real cheese, so why do they insist on putting cheese sauce in EVERYthing?

I'm guessing the cheese sauce is cheaper than using real cheese. I don't understand why dude doesn't just CLIMB OUT OF THERE either.
