Is it wrong that I just teared up during a Taco Bell spot? Like what are the odds on that? All that was missing was Chris Conley introducing the entire piece and Rascal Flatts My Wish playing in the background. Either way I'm not sure what goes down in Bethel, Alaska but the fact that Taco Bell has to be airlifted there is bananas. Like I thought Taco Bell's just existed in every city in America. Once on a road trip to Cooperstown I was driving through upstate New York and going through little 200 person towns that were founded in 1730 and even THEY had Taco Bell's. Hell it wouldn't shock me if Thomas Jefferson drew up the Declaration of Independence while on the can after a Beefy 5 layer Burrito Supreme. So to say Bethel is out in the sticks is an understatement. Like I was all set to blog about how pathetic it is that people are this excited over Taco Bell, but then I watched it and these folks melted this internet tough guy's black heart. I've made fun of 4 year old girls crying because the Bears lost but I couldn't make fun of this Taco Bell Make A Wish. You win again internet.
PS: Truth be told I'd pretty much had my fill of Taco Bell. There was one strategically placed directly across from my dorm in Stevens Point so I pretty much ate there for first through 4th meal 7 days a week. Not only was the food cheap but going there post 2am was one of the most entertaining things I've ever seen. Just a bunch of underage, drunk college kids trying to order 57 soft tacos and pay for it with 41 pennies. I did not envy those workers one bit. Looked like they'd rather be working at Guantanamo Bay than making me and my dumbass friends Gordita Crunches to soak up the Natty Ice in our stomachs. To say spit was basically a condiment was probably an understatement for our food. So given that I've kind of taken a hiatus from Taco Bell. But now everytime I pass one and don't get a taco I feel like a child in Bethel sheds a tear.
Double PS: I did test out the Doritos Locos Taco a couple of months ago. Taco game changer. Like I find it hard to remember a time when I ate just plain taco shells. Top 5 innovation in fast food history. 80% chance these guys came up with it;
