(The Consumerist)   Taco Bell sent 1,000 free "breakfast phones" to "fast-food influencers" to go on "secret breakfast missions." Unemployed millennials, consider branding yourselves as fast-food influencers to get some respect   (consumerist.com) divider line 59

Neo: Hello.
Marketer: Hello, Neo. Do you know who this is?
Neo: Taco Bell.
Marketer: Yes. We've been looking for you, Neo. I want you to tweet which Taco Bell breakfast item you are into.
Neo: What, right now?
Marketer: Yes. Now. Do it quickly, but draw no attention to yourself.
Neo: No way. No way. This is crazy.
Marketer: There are two ways out of this situation. One is you send that Tweet, the other is I send my people over to forcefeed you a Waffle Taco to see how you respond. You take a chance either way. I leave it to you.
Neo: This is insane. Why is this happening to me? What did I do? I'm nobody. I didn't do anything. I'm gonna sh*t myself to death. I can't do this.


+1, win!

brimed03: Someone in Taco Bell's PR dep't just got around to reading The Tipping Point. Malcolm Gladwell, I think, wrote it? Anyway, one of his points is that to get a lot of people to do a thing, you don't need to convince a lot of people. Just enough of the right people. I forget what he calls them, but basically the bleeding-edge folks, the trendsetters, the taste-makers. As Taco Bell ("TB"... seems appropriate) calls them, the influencers.


They're called bellwethers.

My brother wanted to go there for breakfast to try it out. He likes to be the first to try some new gimmicky fast food product. I think it sounds gross but meh.

Also, Chrissy Teigen (SI model and wife of John Legend) loves Taco Bell and she is received one of these phones. At one point Justin Verlander ate Taco Bell before every start as his gameday meal. They get a lot of free promotion from famous people as it is, so it makes sense they'd tap into that.

/yeah yeah tap into that

I just want regular Taco Bell at 7am.  I don't want them to make it all "breakfasty" and shiat with waffle crap and bacon.  Just give me a Meximelt or steak burrito.  You can add eggs.  I like eggs.

Somehow this will become Obama's fault, too.

He wants everyone to get bloody diarrhea so they will sign up on healthcare.gov

stratagos: drxym: Wait until someone hacks the phones - "Take a shiat in the entrance area of your nearest Taco Bell #breakfastphone"

Yes, because "sending a text message" is now "hacking"


Well, if "Taco Bell" is now "food" ...

I can almost understand grubbing for free Taco Bell when you're a broke college kid. But, I don't get it at all when you're already wealthy. I suppose I get it if TB is paying them bank, but if it's just for free tacos, I'm lost.
