As I recall, all of the commercials in that series had pop songs translated literally so they didn't scan at all. They just jammed the syllables in no matter how badly they fit, and I'm pretty sure

What's so wrong with white people that I constantly hear Taco Bell ruins their insides? Is it serious, or is it a joke reference to a movie or cultural zeitgeist piece of humour? Here's a hint, if you stop eating canned food and mayo out of jars, you'll be able to handle Real World Food, and hell maybe even leave the country and eat Other Stuff, too!

Literally everything in Taco Bell is made out of about 5 ingredients, and none of it is high quality.

Yeah, the issues with Taco Bell have nothing to do with it being "ethnic" (term used very loosely here) and everything to do with the fact that it's bottom tier fast food that is digestible in only the most rudimentary sense.

Last time we ate there, my wife I got food poisoning. That might have something to do with it.

It is, literally, the only fast food chain that you can consistently bet on getting food poisoning from in less than 10 visits.

Ask any given 10 people who admit to having eaten there and you'll find nearly all of them have either had food poisoning or known someone who has.

Getting an upset stomach from eating at a place is not food poisoning. Food poisoning is a serious thing where the food has actually been contaminated by bacteria and I can guarantee that no Taco Bell is actually giving it to anybody without being shut down very quickly.

I don't know if this is a Canadian-only company/commercial, but the new Dempster's commercial with the "I'm Too Sexy" song can just go gently caress right off and die. It was mildly interesting/amusing the first time I saw it this morning, and now by the 15th time, I hate it.

I dined at Taco Bell last week for the first time in three years. It ended a three year boycott because I had four straight orders at three different Taco Bells in three states messed up (nothing complicated either: three soft tacos no cheese) and I got all sorts of variants. The last straw was when I got hard tacos with no lettuce and had diced onion on them). So I went to one last week and...I got three hard tacos with no cheese.

Guess I'll check back in 2017 to see if they get better at following instructions.

The only problem I have at Taco Bell is that I always find random bits of poo poo I don't want in my food. I think their prep stations are just a clusterfuck with ingredients flying all over the place. They don't mess up my order too often though. Sometimes I'll get a chicken quesadilla rather than steak but that usually just means they remake it and I get en extra one on them.

Yes of course, it's "hypersensitive" to get the shits after you eat a half-ton of nothing but grease topped with spices and plastic cheese product.

It's probably because Taco Bell meat is made of grade Z chicken asses and/or pulverized meat from retired dairy cows.

The secret is to order the stuff from the "fresco" menu. I had no problem getting a taco with no cheese if you order that. You have to remember that most fast food chains do stuff by volume and have such high turnovers in staff that there not as flexible when it comes to their product. Unless they mention that you "get your way", like Burger King or a regional chain like Whataburger or In-N-Out, they'll serve their food as it's on the menu. No custom orders.

Latuda (an antidepressant)is running an ad that lists THE WORST set of side effects you've ever heard. Suicide, irreversible nerve damage, coma, seizures, drop in white blood cells leading to death, etc. It seems like its fake due to the sheer horror of what it can do.

It's actually an antipsychotic and those are all side-effects that can occur with that class of drugs, not just Latuda.

My sister visited last month and mentioned this commercial that she found to be hilarious. Before she mentioned it, I had not noticed it at all. But since hearing about it, nary a commercial break goes by without this being aired. There are actually two versions of this- one where the Russian-sounding couple at the end clink their glasses together, and one where they don't. It's got that low-budget local commercial charm, but I'd appreciate it if they played it a little bit less.

Also, notice that the video title says it's a "NEW" commercial. It was uploaded five years ago. A search for "Grand Prospect Hall commercial" on YouTube brings up one from 1986, so New York area viewers will be seeing this on their TVs for a long time yet.

It's at least the second in a campaign using the same gimmick (replacing the actress' voice with sing clips) and the whole lot can just disappear. Doesn't help it's on every commercial break.

Fox can gently caress off with having every bumper reminding me they have the Super Bowl too.
