Several weeks ago a commercial leaked onto the web that seemed to indicate that Taco Bell was planning to jump right into the gay marriage debate. The commercial featured two men seemingly falling in love as they enjoyed Taco Bells food together… eventually that bond leads to marriage, motorcycles and more. The ad hasn’t yet aired and Taco Bell has remained silent about it.
It seems that Taco Bell may have had second thoughts about releasing this commercial – because there hasn’t been any comment about it from their corporate offices. Neither has anyone, anywhere in the country mentioned seeing it on any medium other than the YouTube video. There was some conversation that perhaps the commercial was a fake – but the production value of the piece would seem to argue against that.
The likeliest scenario is that officials with Taco Bell likely realized that the commercial could bring more harm than good for their brand and were hoping the video never saw the light of day… well, it’s too late for that now.
This could lead many pro-family conservatives to no longer patronize Taco Bell restaurants.
