Tired of Sharing? Taco Bell Has an Anti-Social Nacho Just for You

Meals for misanthropes

Are you a greedy person who doesn't like to share your nachos with your friends? If so, Taco Bell wants you to buy its giant nacho for one.

In a new ad from Deutsch LA, a young man with exactly the kind of dour demeanor you'd expect from a nacho hoarder rants about the injustices of sharing, the social institution. In all honesty, it's a sentiment we've all probably felt in one moment of weakness or another, which gives it some resonance. And the spot scores extra points for working in some dings against Facebook—namely, the culture of excessive baby photos and cat pics (though let's be real, people who don't like babies and animals are, in all likelihood, soulless). The look on the actor's face when he's swiping through his tablet is pretty much perfect.

Overall, though, the commercial doesn't do a great job of making the gloppy, cheesy mess of a ground-meat pocket that can't rightfully be called a nacho (the "Grilled Stuft Nacho," which the brand just brought back from the dead) actually appetizing. But at least the brand's marketing team knows to embrace the sociopathic demographic—when it's not busy railing against the evils of a certain totalitarian clown.
