The other day I came across a few Taco Bell commercials, and they’ve had a few classic ones. Some are funny, and some bring back the memories. So I’m gonna share a few with you, and they’re embedded in this post, for your viewing convenience.
The first video is a Taco Bell ad from 1989-90 featuring MC Hammer. It’s actually kinda neat.
There’s a chance that the next ones will be even more generic, so proceed at your own risk. 🙂
This next Taco Bell commercial is from 1979 and it looks and sounds like it. But the song is actually kinda catchy: “TacaTacaTaco Bell!” — “The Fresh Food Place!”
But wait, there’s more! This one is from 1984.
Next is one from the early 1990s, and this one brings back the memories of when they had good MexiMelts.
Someday, the next generation of people will look back at 2011 and think our current commercials are generic.
Speaking of generic… you don’t even have to go back a few decades. The newest Taco Bell commercial features “Buddy Mignon” singing lounge music at a piano, about the new Quad Steak Burrito. It’s already generic and it’s not even dated yet. (Perhaps it’s a parody of their old commercials.)
That’s all for now. I don’t want to overwhelm anybody with too much genericness at one time. And don’t worry about quality control here — the next post is already in the works and will be even better!
Thank you, drive thru…
