Taco Bell Turns Burrito Guts Into Superheroes


Forget the Super Friends, Taco Bell will protect the world with its Super Delicious Ingredient Force.

Taco Bell has developed its own version of the website [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Super_Friends].

Superman has been replaced by Steak Maximus, Wonder Woman with Chicken Woman, and Batman with Captain Enchilada Sauce. There's also some guy named Dr. Steve Value that seems nice enough, but I can't help wanting to jump kick off his Segway. The Super Delicious Ingredient Force lives in the Fortress of Flavor and gets around in a very stylish El Camino.

Only one episode of Super Delicious Ingredient Force has been released, but it introduces us to the cast of heroes and shows us that they know how to take on inferior fast food. When John Lee is attacked by the Cruddy Combo Clan - an evil burger, shake, and order of fries - the SDIF come to his rescue. It's just like an episode of Super Friends, but weird.

There's about a minute of pure advertisement from 3:15 to 4:10 if you want to skip it, but afterward Commander Seasoned Beef gives us an education on downed power lines. The animated series is drawn by comics legend Neal Adams, surprisingly enough, with two more episodes on the way.

Super Delicious Ingredient Force might be all about advertising for Taco Bell, but it's really silly too. Along with its previous sale of Atari games [http://www.escapistmagazine.com/news/view/98844-Taco-Bell-Hides-Atari-Games-in-the-Burritos], Taco Bell seems to be making an attempt to appeal to retro geek culture with its promotions.

Well, certainly a unique way to advertise yourself...heh.

Suppose cooler than just doing a random advert

Oh, My God.

Wow there have been a lot of ridiculous reports today.

So when do we get bloodstained-underwear man?

I wish there were Taco Bells in Britain after seeing that. It's ridiculously awesome.

Heh. "We're cheap and easy."

Heh.


That was some good advice on downed electrical lines.

Yes, I can see "Fantastic Rice" going over really well with the gay demographic [/sarcasm]

I have to admit, though, I burst out laughing at "My bicep!"

So, technically there's a real Aqua Teen Hunger Force? That's cool I guess, but where's Meatwad?

I found that actually pretty funny. Sure, it was kind of stupid, but that was the point. And Fantastic Rice is freaking awesome.

Why is it always captain? There are higher military ranks available for use in your name!
Wait, can a superhero legally marry people if they're captain whatever?

Come on, it was awesome in a really bad 1970s Justice League kind of way. It's definitely not going to convince me to eat fast food though...

"Just then, Cruddy Burger launched a warm limp pickle he had concealed within his buns, smacking Captain Enchilada Sauce square in the bicep."

Hahahahahahahahahaha!

By the way, is it just me or does Steak Maximus sound like the name of a porn star?

Also, this would be so much better if it was Chong Lee.

Is it just me, or did "Fantastic Rice" come off as a homosexual?
Did Taco Bell just make a subtle sexuality joke?

Taco Bell rocks!
