Watch the Taco Bell Ad That Was Banned for Upsetting Vegans

Subscribe to TheFW on

Taco Bell was forced to retract its anti-vegetable commercial for promoting its 12-pack of tacos. The ad opens with the narrator deriding vegetables, saying “Veggies on game day is like punting on fourth and one — it’s a cop out.”

Taco Bell responded, saying they didn’t mean for the ad to be misinterpreted, but to be honest, that level of snark is sort of hard to misconstrue. That said, we feel it might be a bit of an overreaction to assume that one ad disparaging vegetables will cause veggie consumption to plummet, upending balanced diets everywhere. We’d prefer to take it as a sharp but ultimately harmless dig at the overly health-conscious.

What do you think? Is this ad controversial or just in good fun?
