Taco Bell Cool Ranch Doritos Locos Tacos. A very proper noun. Clearly designed to combat the munchies. Not yet available in Canada.

Taco Bell Uses Vine to announce Cool Ranch Doritos Locos Tacos

Why spend millions on a television ad campaign when you can generate six seconds of video for free, and send it out via the hottest new iPhone app?

The folks at Taco Bell were thinking the same thing. Taco Bell used Vine to create a simple stop-motion ad announcing the launch date for the highly-anticipated (due to the munchies, one presumes) Cool Ranch Doritos Locos Tacos.

Here is the Cool Ranch Doritos Locos Tacos announcement video. I would really like to believe that it was made by a few stoned interns. Give those folks a full-time job.

Note: Due to the combination of an all-consuming search for employment, a general lack of Internet, and the rumblings of summer lethargy I neglected to post this entry written last week.  It follows.

Yesterday began summer activity phase I.  Having submitted my final paper on Friday, my heart fell into my belly the next morning when I received an automated email detailing its failure to send due to a mistyped address.  Since then the days have continued hokey pokey as I try to find steady streams of income. I took a side trip to Seattle Tuesday evening, driving down the I5 as sheets of rain pummeled for miles. The purpose of the trip was ridiculous, yet a reason nonetheless.  Regular employment remains aloof, although I have come up on volunteer work. 

Why would I work for free?  This sounds like something I would not do. 

Answer:  it’s good for me.
