Taco Bell superheroes

Standard

Speaking of Taco Bell commercials, did you know Taco Bell has actually made superheroes out of their ingredients?   And they didn’t just make a cheesy commercial — they made a whole episode!   (Well, four and a half minutes, anyway.)

This is a parody of Superfriends, which makes it kinda cool in a retro, parody way.  The team is called the Super Delicious Ingredient Force (SDIF), and they stay at the Fortress of Flavor.  You’ve gotta watch this.  It’s the epitome of cheesy, in a funny way.

Episode 1 is when the SDIF team battles the Cruddy Combo Clan.

Of course they have their own website: SDIF.com.  Apparently each character even has their own Facebook page, which is stretching the gag a little thin.

There are currently four episodes.  You may be wondering if they get better or worse.  Well, in my humble opinion, they get even more cheesy.  Whether that is good or not, you can decide for yourself.

FYI, these are funnier if you watch them with a friend, so you can make share commentary on it.  (It also helps if you have a sense of humor… obviously.)  You can also leave a comment sharing your thoughts on it, and you get bonus points if you can make it funny.  🙂

Regardless of how cheesy / generic these are, at least an attempt was made at humor.  These clips are better than most commercials — even just the sound effects in the first one makes it worth watching.   I wish more ad companies would make funny commercials.  Hmm… I think that’s a job for… BUFFET O’ BLOG!  While I jest, the staff here could make the most awesome commercials, without a doubt.  So perhaps we should design a few… especially if we could get paid for it!

  1. Taco Bell released their SDIF.com website. I completely understand — I wouldn’t want to continue paying money to host those videos! They were still on YouTube for a while, but apparently they’ve all been made “private”. I found only one of them here.

    That seems lame to take it away when hosting is free on YouTube.

    BTW, while searching for the videos, I saw a list of the “superheroes”, which you might find amusing:

    The SDIF are made up of 10 unique ingredients: Capitan Enchilada Sauce, Steak Maximus, Crunch Boy, Fantastic Rice, Flex Tortilla, Commander Seasoned Beef, Super Reduced Fat Sour Cream, Incredibean, Chicken Woman and Dr. Steve Value.
