Taco Bell Grilled Chicken Burrito Penny Thief

Has anyone else seen the Taco Bell commercial for this thing? It’s a guy running around to different shops taking pennies from the “Take a penny, leave a penny jar.” In some cases saying that he has left a penny previously. He even has the audacity to jack one from two little kids at a lemonade stand. He gathers all of his pennies and buys his Grilled Chicken Burrito…but lo’ and behold he’s a penny short…luckily Taco Bell has a penny tray and nabs one from there.

Taco Bell 89cent Grilled Chicken Burrito

Who else doesn’t like this commercial? What’s it teach us? It teaches us to “steal” money…even from children and it also teaches us not to pay taxes. His $.89 should have been $.98 after taxes (in CA). Come on Taco Bell….I thought you were better than that 😛

    That’s really funny that you posted that, because I always think the same thing… It is never 89 cents, it’s always several cents more.

  2. I saw this commercial and immediately after stole money from small children. Apparently that gets you jail time, not chicken burritos. Learn from my mistakes, not TB commercials.

    Huh! They only air a significantly less awesome version of the commercial here, which starts off at the part where the protagonist(?) is a penny short at Taco Bell.

    They never add tax in commercials! I’ve seen it countless times over the years in commercials. When I was a kid, I used to think “Now what state do those lucky bastards live in that doesn’t have sales tax? I wanna move there!”.

    This commercial is having a more severe impression on me than Zac apparently, because viewing it makes me want to mercilessly beat elderly people with a stick. I’ll resist the urge as long as possible, but when all hell breaks loose, my lawyer and I will be pointing fingers at Taco Bell.

    I hate that commercial. It makes me want to punch the guy right in the face for some reason. Mind you, I am not a violent person. I’m a friendly fun loving type of guy. Also, the moron forgets to steal enough change for the tax.

    LOL, just noticed Adam bomb’s post. Now I feel a lot better. I’m not the only one who feels this way.

    Even better, it would be fun to find the add execs who thought this commercial up, and tie them to the back end of a moving train, and let their heads bounce off the railroad ties. Even better, tie them up right next to the nerds who came up with those new McDonald’s cafe coffee commercials. I would love to have been a fly on the wall the day the genius stood up and claimed what a great idea those abominations are.

    Every McDonald’s commercial for the last several years has been an “abomination”.

    If you get your moral and life lessons from commercials you have issues. All commercials are lame end of story.
