Taco Bell went anti-veggie in its Super Bowl Ad and fortunately it suffers the consequences.
Not that Taco Bell was ever a place you thought of for vegetables anyway, but it certainly didn't need to create a Super Bowl Ad that outright encourages people to not bring a vegetable platter to a game day party.
And it's not like there will be Big Game ads for vegetables either amongst all the beer, car and snack ads, but attacking people who are smart enough to remember that you can have a healthy Super Bowl party and not have any less fun, is just silly. Which ad agency was asleep at the wheel here?
According to the Center for Science in the Public Interest,Taco Bell was inundated with complaints from consumers and nutritionists, and responding to public pressure agreed to take the anti-veggie ad down. At least they acted quickly, but still...
I say now everyone in the country should be sure to have a vegetable platter at their Super Bowl Party. Now wouldn't that be a step in the right direction! Just make that dip low-fat or fat-free and you're all set.
