Taco Bell, Your Ad is Not Appetizing! To be fair, we are going to admit that we may be unfairly biased against this ad. You know, because it’s kind of gross and not too funny and all. But several of the folks watching the game with us who had never seen it laughed out loud at Taco Bell’s ad.
We think it tows the line between exploitative and just plain stupid, and it definitely relies on gross-out humor. And also, as remarked upon by the very same people enjoying the ad where we watched the game, it is unclear what the hell these old folks are even advertising until the very end of the spot!
