Taco Bell Delivers 10,000 Tacos To Settle Someone Else’s Hoax
Taco Bell may have had nothing to do with the hoax, but they sure made good on it anyway! After residents of Bethel, Alaska had been teased that a Taco Bell restaurant was going to open in their community, the fast food giant decided to cash-in on the marketing opportunity by delivering 10,000 tacos via a helicopter.
Last month, feuding pranksters papered the town with flyers and banners advertising the arrival of Taco Bell — what would have been a milestone for residents given that the only fast food chain is a Subway. Police say flyers advertising the new restaurant opening included the phone number of the intended target in the elaborate hoax.
The population of Bethel, Alaska is 6,200 – so Taco Bell delivered enough tacos so that everyone in the community could have at least one.
