Nationwide Commercial Gets K-Fed Taco Bell Job Offer


In a witty ploy for press, Taco Bell, unlike other fast food brands who have derided Nationwide's depiction of the fast food career as less than desirable, has offered a job to Kevin Federline and the promise of a customized Taco Bell uniform. Taco Bell CEO Greg Creed sent this offer letter:

Dear Mr. Federline,

First off, congratulations on your upcoming Super Bowl ad. We heard it's generating a lot of talk, particularly about working in the fast food industry.

We know you respect those who work in our business. In fact, last year you said in an interview, "My kids are going to have to learn what a real job is, what life is. You don't have it easy with me. Period. My kids are going to work at Taco Bell."

We're flattered, but obviously they're too young to work for us. So here's our offer to you: Come work for us, just for a one hour shift. We'll get you a uniform, a custom name tag and show you what a great place Taco Bell is to work. We'll even reward customers who visit that restaurant with an order of our new Carne Asada Steak Grilled Taquitos for free.

We encourage you to continue to "Think Outside the Bun" and hope you accept our tasty offer.

Greg Creed
Taco Bell Corp.

Now, that's the kind of marketing think we respect and appreciate.

Dear Greg Creed at Taco Bell, me and the boys don't give a shit about what this Kevin guy has to say or any other "STAR(?.)" Your food any good yet, or should I stay close to the john if and when I ever try you out?

Genius. Almost makes me want to eat at Taco Bell.

Some necessary cool points after an uncool e coli scare. Despite the ads, I'm fairly certain Carmen Electra has never eaten a gordita.

I like that they jumped all over the K-Fed thing, but it's still K-Fed. Coupled with the E coli thing, it's been a banner year for the Bell.

Best advertisement for this years Super Bowl. I do not care the past history of the company or people in the commercial. It showed true thought which was not present in other commercials this year.
