Last week we caught wind of an alarmingly gay Taco Bell commercial, and while it did nothing to make us want a steak and egg A.M. “crunch wrap” any more than we already do (which is not at all), it did make us reevaluate all the way we groan when driving past the pseudo-Mexican laxative specialty store on our way to Whole Foods.
Here’s the commercial if you missed it, wherein two bros totally gay bro out with each other all day instead of going to work:
Well it looks like the whole thing was fan fiction. You know, when unpaid Taco Bell enthusiasts take it upon themselves to do some pro bono marketing work for a multi-national corporation. The holidays are for giving, after all.
A Taco Bell spokesperson had this to say:
We didn’t create this ad, but we can see the people who did share the same Live Mas passion for our brand—and our breakfast—as we do. Although we cannot condone unauthorized use of our intellectual property, we are impressed with their work and would be open to meeting with them.
Way to work in the phrase “Live Mas passion,” guys.
For now we’ll have to stick with Adore Delano and Bianca Del Rio pushing Starbucks.
