EdgeRunner: [img.fark.net image 480x360]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.
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.
lilbjorn: Somehow this will become Obama's fault, too.
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"
Disaster Transport: 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
