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.
