Taco Bell ad is great PR for shrimp bloggers


I've always thought of shrimp as an overpriced mediocrity, which might explain why I've never run across a "shrimp blogger" like the one in Taco Bell's new ad for Pacific Shrimp Tacos. Of course, it might also be because he's fictional, as no actual person would get that excited about something like this. But that hasn't stopped real bloggers from trying to fill the void. Kotaku's Owen Good staked his claim as the first to actually blog about the new delicacy, while anti-shrimping site is now billing itself as "the Original Shrimp Blog, home of the REAL, globe traveling 'Shrimp Blogger' as seen on TV."
