It’s OK If Your Mom Is Completely Overbearing, So Long as She Feeds You Taco Bell Smothering mothers serve Smothered Burritos

Everyone knows the smother mother. She drowns you in unwanted attention and unsolicited advice—popping up where she shouldn’t, like at your office meetings, or when you’re in the shower. But not everyone knows the Smothered Burrito, new from Taco Bell. The brand’s latest ad from Deutsch LA encourages you thirtysomethings who are still living at home to forgive your obnoxious mom if she bribes you with Taco Bell. (Presumably, she’ll be standing by with a bottle of Pepto-Bismol, too.) Of course, you could always just move out of the house. Your newfound confidence might help you move up the corporate ladder a little more quickly. Before you know it, you’ll be able to afford a meal that won’t give you indigestion—or at least Chipotle.
