By now, I’m sure most of you have seen the new Taco Bell commercials promoting its new “Mystery Menu Item,” which will be
reviled revealed during the Super Bowl. In these commercials, sports stars like James Harden and other celebrities are given a plain green box representing the new item, but aren’t told what the item is.
Or whether the green box is actually edible.
But if you’re a gambler by nature, you can pre-order the mystery item and get one Super Bowl Sunday, a day before it’s available to the general public on Feb. 8. Yes, that’s a full 24 hours before others in your area will get their first taste of the Meaty Cinnabon Wrap!
Or Double-Decker Mexi-Fries-a-rrito.
Or Chicken Twisty Supreme.
The point is, no one really knows WHAT it will be. But considering the release of the Waffle Taco last year, we can all agree that anything is possible. Which could explain how I somehow ended up as part of the promotion. The full 37-second commercial will premier tomorrow morning at Long Awkward Pause. In the meantime, here’s a quick mini preview…
See you tomorrow, if my nose isn’t broken…
