jaylectricity: 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.


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.

fredklein:
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 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.

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".

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.

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'...
