I am so glad the Taco Bell boycott is over

This ad intrigues me. Doesn't it seem as thought the promoters of this ad are also having a secret chuckle at the migrant workers they are attempting to support? THe "Low Prices, Lower Ethics" motto is a good one. The picture, though, isn't very hard-hitting. It looks like an ad for a cheesy new sitcom. The "benches" i.e. migrant workers are the nannies or long lost uncles. maybe it's city mouse family meets country mouse family sorta clash. the mom looks a little interested in the guy with the hat but maybe she is just smiling into her Taco Bell tomatoes that they hand picked and got paid a dollar for a day's work. But man, this family is enjoying their Taco Bell. I don't think the ad designers intended to send all viewers running for the border but they may have done just that. Next time: remind people the beans, while delicious, are powder and water instead.
