Taco Bell: "Fiesta Platters"

by Richard Keller, posted Feb 3rd 2008 10:31PM

Good commercial, bad food

Here's the thing...I thought this was an okay commercial, with the smoky-eyed mariachi player enticing these two office workers to enjoy their Taco Bell Fiesta Platter at a table rather than during a meeting. I even liked the whip crack sound effect when the female office worker was put under the mariachi player's spell. Then they showed a picture of the Fiesta Platter...Urk.

One of the most unappetizing platters I have ever seen on a commercial. Nothing better than seeing all that food crowded on a tiny plastic tray. If they had presented it better maybe it would have worked for me. Instead, the whole commercial was ruined. Perhaps they need to rehire the Taco Bell dog again to bring the customer's back.

Exactly why I don't eat there anymore.

It has been corrected now, but you didn't make it up. My problem with that statement wasn't the spelling though. Have you seen the other things Taco Bell has to offer, Richard? Compared to the other things Taco Bell sells, that looked great.

I went to college w/ the mariachi player who had the speaking lines. It is good to see that theater majors can get work! HA!
