Say What? Ronald McDonald Endorses Taco Bell’s New Breakfast
Taco Bell now has breakfast and its shocking who the spokesman is… Ronald McDonald.
No, not as shocking as it may seem. No, its not McDonald’s Ronald McDonald, yet Taco Bell may be taking a piece of McDonald’s business with this innovative campaign.
As you can see, the commercial is hilarious and affective at the same time. I’m not sure if their breakfast is going to go well or if its going to be good, but I can tell you after watching this commercial, I’m going to personally find out.
This Taco Bell campaign reminds me of the commercial ESPN did in their “It’s Not Crazy, It’s Sports” promotional series.
ESPN did a great job of showing what it would be like to share a name with a superstar. They followed ordinary men who had been saddled with the name “Michael Jordan”.
Both commercials from both ESPN and Taco Bell are great marketing strategies in my opinion and always enjoy seeing a creative spin on traditional TV advertising.
