Eww.. I find wanting to eat a girl's stuffed taco to be a very specific and bizarre fetish.

Speaking of tacos, Taco Bell used to do shrimp tacos for lent, but they haven't had them the last couple years.  It's a shame, I always looked forward to them, hands down the best thing they've had on their menu.

I have been talking about this commercial for weeks. I'm trying to figure it all out.

When the dad got home early, did he bring the food?
Or did the kid have the food already?
If he had the food already, why would he be farking the girl? Or why wouldn't the food already be gone when dad came home and caught him?
Getting back to the dad, if he brought the food home, did the kid steal the food and run?
Or maybe the kid bought the food, brought it to his OWN house thinking he'd have time to eat it before his jealous father got home. Maybe he had to run or else the dad would have beat him silly and taken his food.

There are really a number of different angles to this commercial and it bothers me that I can't be convinced on any one scenario.

The dad is also portrayed in as slightly chewing on some remnant of the stuffed nacho. Clearly, the nacho is a metaphor for thoughts about the girl's sexuality as reduced to a commercial consumable product---as the the guardian of his daughter her father is portrayed as only having oblique contact (as fathers do)  with awareness of his daughter's desires. He chases the boy who has the Lacanian phallus (nacho) and represents the father's simultaneous authority and repressed wish to fulfill his own desire for his daughter's friends. Of course the daughter is never actually portrayed--she is silenced as a vanishing mediator for the transference of authority between the male youth and the male father. Everything is depicted in slow motion, causing the eye to focus directly on the mouth and its contact point with the nacho (or in the father's case, the deferred nacho). The subtext of the commercial clearly says that if you purchase and openly eat the grilled stuffed nacho, you are actually farking the daughter.

I'm kidding.

No one has the Lacanian Phallus.

I just figured it was some sort of "adding insult to injury" angle -- not only was the young man screwing the dad's daughter, but he stole his Taco Bell on the way out of the house. Of course that poses a new question for you to chew on: is dad angrier about the sex or on account of the purloined stuft nacho?

He's probably pissed that his wife caught him with a stuffed nacho.  He's obviously overweight and probably has high blood pressure, so she's probably nagging him about exercising more and eating right.  Now that she caught him in the act thanks to douchenozzle, it's back to salads and no sex.  I'd chase after the little farker too.

Just as long as it's not another Dorito thing. After hearing everyone talk about how good the Doritos Locos Tacos were, I thought I'd try one.

It was like eating the innards of a taco through a shell made completely of salt. It didn't taste like Doritos. It didn't taste like a taco. It tasted like crunchy, lumpy salt. Probably the grossest thing I've ever eaten.

Dear Taco Bell,
    Add some real fire to one item on your menu and you'll get the sales.
Not any of this namby-pamby stuff that everyone tries to pass off as hot; eg., your Volcano thinger, Wendy's spicy chicken thing, whatever Carl's Jr's caliente du jour is...
I'm talking actually hot. Make it like you mean it. Just one obvious item that burns your face off and people will line up for it.

I'm kind of in love with the idea of the kid fleeing into a Taco Bell, placing his order with the fuming dad screeching to a halt behind him in line, who then feels obligated to order something himself before continuing the pursuit.. maybe a Baja Blast or a chicken soft taco.

Why do companies do that?  Put out "hot" stuff that isn't that hot?  Is it so that people who never eat spicy food can feel like they're taking a walk on the wild side?  Are they afraid of being liable for heart attacks or exploding ulcers?

Did you ever try the spicy baconator?  It's not a regular menu item here but it's probably the hottest thing I've ever had from a big chain restaurant since it was covered in jalapeños.  I had a decent burn going on from it.

The last time I had Taco Bell was because I was getting sick of the Wendys near the hospital my dad was in. I regretted it about a half hour later, as always, and I think I'm done eating there for good. I'll make my own hangover food, thanks.

Well, it is more like Taco Bell's ( Pepsi Co.& LLC) advertising executives are dumb enough to think that their customers are dumb enough to believe anything that they put in their commercials. Marketing is only about trying to sell pretty lies all dressed up with sex and some music background track. Oh, and I always really needed some kind of Mexican style food that I could eat on the run. Like burritos, chimichangas, the crunch wrap or many other items on the Taco Hell menu line up already there. Like Taco Bell is even considered food!

Seems to me that has been happening across many industries lately.
It's what happens when a new batch of B-school hotshots decide they can cut costs everywhere and cash in on the company's "name cache". Merger mania also causes this-and Taco Bell was acquired (along with Pizza Hut and KFC) into Yum brands since then.
And it works for a while.
Especially if the company had gotten so big under competent management that...I believe the term is "too big to fail".

C18H27NO3: Dear Taco Bell,
    Add some real fire to one item on your menu and you'll get the sales.
Not any of this namby-pamby stuff that everyone tries to pass off as hot; eg., your Volcano thinger, Wendy's spicy chicken thing, whatever Carl's Jr's caliente du jour is...
I'm talking actually hot. Make it like you mean it. Just one obvious item that burns your face off and people will line up for it.


The problem with that is that your avereage person would be like "I'm a man, I like hot things. *munch* ZOMG! Is too hot! Why you no tell me is hot?? I wants back my monies"

There are people who enjoy things that are actualy spicy. There are a lot more who just think they do. For instance this one chinese buffet I used t to go to had awesome peppered crunchy green beans. Lots of pepper for a good spice kick. Well one day I get some, and they are bland as hell hell. They are labeled 'peppered greenbeans' but there is maybe 2 specks of pepper per square inch. I asked the chinese lady WTF. She says "Everyone complained. They said it was too hot" I told her "it says *peppered* greenbeans. If they don't like pepper on it, they shouldn't eat it then" She agreed, but had to cater to the most people. She'd make me a proper batch whenever I asked, but I still hated that they had to change it for a few sissies.

I don't like things that are so hot that everything just tastes like burning. But I enjoy heat when it adds flavor. I am of the firm belief that if you are using pepper in something, you damn well better be able to see little black bits everywhere, or why even bother?

Ishidan: 1nsanilicious: When did reviews of things become profanity laced comparisons of extreme hate?

Why not ask why our cooking shows no longer look like Julia Child or even Iron Chef, and instead look like Gordon Ramsay? Same reason.
/know what we need? An edgy, angry show about painting. If we can turn The Galloping Gourmet into a spectacle of screaming and profanity, just imagine what we could do with Bob Ross's favorite activity.


Drama sells.

You can still find good instruction if you know where to look though.  Alton Brown, America's Test Kitchen and Jacques Pepin just off the top of my head, and are three of my favorites.

Also, Thomas Keller recently started doing a YouTube show.  He's a remarkably good teacher for having no background in acting or broadcasting or anything.  He has natural ease like Pepin does that probably comes part from natural talent and part from the confidence of having such a complete mastery of everything he talks about.

They changed the audio from her to your. I looked it up because I thought the same thing (why is this kid banging his sister)


I was going to ask the same thing, because that's the only version I've seen/heard... I was wondering just why the hell he was running from his own father getting home early... I never even considered the possibility of him getting caught banging his own sister, but I suppose that's the only thing that makes sense with the new audio... Great job with the change there, marketing monkeys... You've taken it from funny to creepy...

I always figure the boy didn't fark the dad's daughter; he's fully dressed and doesn't look disheveled at all. In addition, he hadn't started eating the Taco Bell food at all; we see him taking his first bite while he's running.

So, either he stole Dad's taco and is eating it, or he brought it with him intending to eat it after the farking was done, only Dad showed up early before they got to the 'clothes on the floor' step.

Ah, Taco Bell.  Much like the GOP, I didn't leave you, you left me.  In the 80's, you were quite possibly the finest stoner drive thru food available in a medium sized midwestern city, and now, you don't even assemble anything resembling food.

A loss, to be sure, but I'll survive.  But I am saddened and a bit wistful for the early blush of affection our relationship used to have.

Could be banging the baby sitter.


But I'm just glad that someone confirmed that the audio was changed.   The first couple of times I heard, I heard "HER parents" and thereafter, when listening it seemed to be "YOUR parents" and most recently seemed to have flipped back to "HER" once again.

Somacandra: jaylectricity: When the dad got home early, did he bring the food?

The dad is also portrayed in as slightly chewing on some remnant of the stuffed nacho. Clearly, the nacho is a metaphor for thoughts about the girl's sexuality as reduced to a commercial consumable product---as the the guardian of his daughter her father is portrayed as only having oblique contact (as fathers do)  with awareness of his daughter's desires. He chases the boy who has the Lacanian phallus (nacho) and represents the father's simultaneous authority and repressed wish to fulfill his own desire for his daughter's friends. Of course the daughter is never actually portrayed--she is silenced as a vanishing mediator for the transference of authority between the male youth and the male father. Everything is depicted in slow motion, causing the eye to focus directly on the mouth and its contact point with the nacho (or in the father's case, the deferred nacho). The subtext of the commercial clearly says that if you purchase and openly eat the grilled stuffed nacho, you are actually farking the daughter.

I'm kidding.

No one has the Lacanian Phallus.

When the dad got home early, did he bring the food?
Or did the kid have the food already?
If he had the food already, why would he be farking the girl? Or why wouldn't the food already be gone when dad came home and caught him?
Getting back to the dad, if he brought the food home, did the kid steal the food and run?
Or maybe the kid bought the food, brought it to his OWN house thinking he'd have time to eat it before his jealous father got home. Maybe he had to run or else the dad would have beat him silly and taken his food.

There are really a number of different angles to this commercial and it bothers me that I can't be convinced on any one scenario.


What bothers me is that it's the same dad from that Nintendo WiiU commercial...

And the girl in that commercial looks to be about 9-10.

The other issue I have with that commercial is that the audio seems to say "YOUR parents come home early."  I don't hear "HER parents come home early" at all, and I've hit rewind on the DVR a couple of times to make sure I'm getting it right.  Maybe it's different in my market.  So as I hear it, the kid is running away from his own home.  Carrying food.  I just figured he had a party there or something.

Had one last week.  It was farking horrible, and I'm no food snob.  None of the flavors jive at all, and there was zero discernable cheese flavor.  The sour cream (which I like, in general) made it worse.  But my four year-old kind of liked it, so Taco Bell has that going for them, which is nice.

You're really over-thinking this.

I'm not fretting about it...just trying to flesh some material out of it.

I just figured it was some sort of "adding insult to injury" angle -- not only was the young man screwing the dad's daughter, but he stole his Taco Bell on the way out of the house. Of course that poses a new question for you to chew on: is dad angrier about the sex or on account of the purloined stuft nacho?


Sounds like the dude figured since he left a stuffed taco at the house, he might as well take one from dad on the way out the door.

Boo_Guy: Why do companies do that? Put out "hot" stuff that isn't that hot? Is it so that people who never eat spicy food can feel like they're taking a walk on the wild side? Are they afraid of being liable for heart attacks or exploding ulcers?


I've noticed that with hot mustard from Chinese restaurants as well. The vast majority serve little packets of dumbed-down mustard that might as well be French's. Fortunately, there's one near me that makes its own, packaged into little plastic cups with lids, and it does a wonderful job of cleaning out your sinuses.

tommyl66: At least the dad is gaining on the kid, and the dog is gonna get there even sooner. If the commercial were 20 seconds longer you'd get to see some grade A child abuse footage.


That's because the kid grew up on terrible foodstuffs like Taco Bell, and he has the health and wind of a 75-year-old. Dad made healthy food choices for most of his life, and for that young whippersnapper to not only try to bang his daughter, but to bring such inedible trash into his house--well, that's going to be an epic ass-beating.

It's too bad that Dad isn't a Real American instead of just some dweeb who eats healthy food, or he could have shot that kid as he ran out the door, and we'd all be spared this commercial.

That's not what I said.

My point is that these companies make a lot of money providing what they provide. This would not happen if their products were really 'horrible'. Thus, any opinion that the products are horrible is incorrect on the face of it.

Of course, people can like or dislike whatever they want. But personal dislike of a product or company does Not equal that product or company being horrible.

I admit, I eat their smothered burrito fairly frequently. It's a decent wet burrito for 3 bucks. Especially if you substitute onions for the rice (filler!), and have them eliminate that awful chipotle cream sauce.

Has no one paid any attention to the lyrics playing in the background?   Clearly, the commercial (at least as originally conceived and recorded) was referencing  "her parents."   The song is Evil Friend by Portugal and the relevant lyrics are as follows:  "  Your Mama's got nothing on me..  Your daddy's got nothing on me..."   In the commercial, just about the time the dad is shown coming flying across the lawn chasing the kid, is when the "your daddy's got nothing on me" lyric is heard.  So clearly, the kid (who the lyrics represent) is saying that to someone else, about their parents.

The first dozen or so times I saw this commercial (on a college bowl game where it was seemingly played ad infinitum) it was as plain as day that the announcer said "her parents."   A week or two later and now the script was altered and the announcer said "your parents."   I guess Taco Bell was taking some heat for potentially seeming to either condone possible rape, or underage sex and changed it up.

Holy crap, I thought I was the only one... Also, they weren't THAT interrupted, as the kid is fully dressed... unless he stopped whatever he was doing with the daughter, and out of respect to the angry father he got dressed BEFORE he took the food... I just can't seem to wrap my head around it.

I think we are arguing over different meanings of "horrible". The product is actually good in terms of selling and making the company a profit.  In addition, it's a fast food that appeals to a large portion of the population or obviously it would be out of business.

Nonetheless, I think it's bad food (or horrible).  It's overprocessed food "product" and of little nutritional value.  I don't think the taste is all that great - unless you really loved school cafeteria food when you were a kid. Most of their products are overly sweet or salty (as is the case with all fast food and plenty of chain restaurants). And yes, I think you need the constitution of someone 30-something or younger to eat that stuff.  Taco Bell is easily the last fast food joint I will eat in if I really am in a rush - I'd rather do McDonalds.

Regardless of the food, I don't think the company is evil or horrible. They're making a profit (I guess - I don't exactly follow Yum's share price or financials) which is their sole purpose.

This is exactly right. In addition there may be different aspects of the thing that are horrible. For example, as I recall Taco Bell is rather tasty in the trashy, sleazy way that salt-and-fat stuffed processed food can be. It'll hit a bunch of flavor receptors and drop a big processed cheese party in your mouth. The food is edible, and digestible. The problems, for me and many others, occur post-digestion. Nothing in the world creates the same paint-peeling farts that Taco Bell can. I'm talking about those ones that feel burning hot when they come out, then all off a sudden the air turns green, light bulbs blow out, and domestic animals scream and tear out of the room. No other Mexican food works this way. Taco Bell has given me farts so bad, they've actually travelled back in time. That's right--they've ripped the goddamned space-time continuum. Like all of a sudden you smell something tremendously, gaggingly awful, but can't find the source. Then you eat at Taco Bell. Then later you rip one of those rambling phadookas, but you don't smell anything, and then you realize the stench actually shot back in time to before the meal. And after the farts, you know you're going to be spending some quality toilet time--the kind requiring a couple of courtesy flushes, and then three more to deal with all the paperwork.

That's where the horribleness comes in. Tasty food, cheap, stops the hunger, but it'll leave your ass battered harder than Rihanna and all the fluorescent tubes melted and the toilet paper used up.

From seeing those commercials, my interest was piqued and I stopped by Taco Bell for the 1st time in over a year for lunch yesterday.  I got 2 of those grilled stuft nachos and a chicken burrito supreme.  I actually thought the nacho things were decent.  I wasnt expecting filet wrapped in bacon..  I was a little disappointed in the burrito though. In hindsight I'd rather had a couple more of he nacho things, or at least something different. 

\I do like the crunchwrap supremes better.

\\and damn do i miss the BLT soft tacos.  those things were great.

Prank Call of Cthulhu: fredklein: My point is that these companies make a lot of money providing what they provide. This would not happen if their products were really 'horrible'. Thus, any opinion that the products are horrible is incorrect on the face of it.

You know, Justin Bieber makes a lot of money from the product he provides, but it's still horrible.

I don't think "makes a lot of money" necessarily equals "not a horrible product".


For a company, it does.

Companies exist to make money. Selling something that is 'horrible' doesn't make money.

Now, is that product 'horrible' from a nutritional standpoint? Or a cruelty-free standpoint? Or a 'no icky-stuff standpoint? Perhaps. But that's not what most people look at or pay attention to. And thus, most people do not find it 'horrible'.

Arthen: Wow, the trope of implying taco bell food is bad food, will never die.

FTFY

I keep thinking about that poor dog. It's clear he is about to maul that boy, and the father will probably join in. So dad goes to jail for assault, the dog will be euthanized, and his carcass will be sent to a rendering plant and converted back into Taco Bell products. It's the circle of life!

So, "horrible" only means "money losing" now? Every movie that bombed at the box office was "horrible"? Every failed product, no matter how technically superior to its rivals, was "horrible"? Nothing that makes money can ever be "horrible", no matter how inferior in how many ways?

That's one mighty odd definition of "horrible" you're using, dude... I don't think anyone outside of the companies' CEOs thinks that way...

Optimal_Illusion: Sgt Otter: technofiend: Eww.. I find wanting to eat a girl's stuffed taco to be a very specific and bizarre fetish.

You're thinking of an Alabama Hot Pocket.

Not a Tuscaloosa Dumpling?


A Mississippi Mudpie?
(Not to be confused with a Mississippi Mud Pie, which is an actual and delicious desert.)

8tReAsUrEz: Hm. "like your first time having sex". Mine was spectacular (She thought so too, still comes back for more after many years and many other partners). It pays to actually read something about female sexual responses, u kno?

/Not that I'm bragging. Oh no, nothing could be further from my mind.
//Taco Bell is one of the reasons the aliens will blow us to smithereens
///Tacos are what I ate in Mexico. Taco Bell is dung wrapped in shiat


No one cares.

I had one last week. It basically tastes like a smaller Crunchwrap Supreme minus the crunchy taco layer inside. Plus it's a mess to eat, and the meat, cheese and sour cream are all stuck in each corner instead of evenly spread around.

Arthen: Extra points for putting quotes around beef and saying sour cream is gross.


Real sour cream is delicious.

The caulking gun full of dehydrated milk solids and modified food starch they use at Taco Bell is unrelated to real sour cream.

TuteTibiImperes: BSABSVR: After a pink taco, enjoy a Grilled Stuffed Nacho!

Speaking of tacos, Taco Bell used to do shrimp tacos for lent, but they haven't had them the last couple years.  It's a shame, I always looked forward to them, hands down the best thing they've had on their menu.


Oh god I remember those... They were absolutely amazing for being from a fast food restaurant. With that chile lime rub on the shrimp and like a cilantro sour cream sauce? Damn those were good eatin'...
