 Is this really the most appropriate way to sell tacos?

They were talking about this commercial a week or two ago on the radio.  Either we're all dirty old men, or the Ortega marketing folks were raised in a social vacuum and were shielded from any and all sexual innuendo throughout their lives.  I mean seriously.  No one at Ortega caught this?  Come on

one of the oldest tricks of marketing is to create sexual tension or sexually related discomfort (not the std kind smile) in viewers.  it is also designed to provide for a resolution or release of this tension, the "climax" if you will - and equate that with, you guessed it, the product the company would like to get you to buy

i can think of no greater creation of a sexual tension / release cycle, among taco aged buying individuals, than to correlate a product to the taking of the virginity of a teenage girl

messed up? probably - unintentional? definitely not

I think you guys are making too much of this.  We can all go deep into the innuendo part of our mind and turn just about everything into a sexual innuendo.  We do it all the time.  Shawn Johnson could have said anything, and those inclined to would have found some angle to pursue.

SJ: "I love beef in my tacos."  (I'll give you some beef, baby!)

SJ: "I really like taco sauce on my tacos."  (I'll show you some "taco sauce" you'll like!)

And it goes on.

So I seriously doubt that anyone would look at it this way.  Go ask your wives and girlfriends, and then we can all laugh at how they gave you strange looks for bringing this up or kicked you in the nuts.

I've worked with a LOT of people in advertising in my life (I do market research). Every single one of them was an idiot.

So, it's possible that this advertisement was a subliminal thing, but given my experience with the idiots in advertising, I doubt it.

It's unfortunate that she doesn't live in the Phoenix area.  The Pink Taco could use a famous spokesperson.  I haven't had dinner there yet, but I remember the restaurant's name causing quite a stir in Scottsdale.  But it's tough to go to The Pink Taco when Wildfish is right next door.

I smiled at the commercial but her delivery is so innocent, artless and without innuendo - I can see it (the commercial) being written without any sexual subtext intended.

I think Sarkus' comment - to the effect that virtually anythingshe said could have some guy (my brothers and cousins, to mention a few) responding with a cheerfully crude remark - was spot on. It's a taco commercial. A female said she likes tacos. Some will grin and say "I'll bet you do...".

But like that photo of the female golfer kissing a glass trophy, sometimes stuff happens, despite the idea that nothing's an accident in commercials.

saying how much she likes tacos would have been one thing - notice how everyone in this thread - including sarkus in his simulated lines - describes tacos.  she is made to deliver a line about her taco.  how often do you use the singular form of taco?

you dont have to hope - in the commercial her line is very explicit and precise in reaffirming that she has only one

Damn technicality. Only two short years before her taco is appropriately aged. (changed to prove I know what a "taco" is)

Okay, I need to stop now. paranoid

We're talking about semantics and innuendo:  taco vs. tacos, "her" taco vs. "a" taco, whether one implies something by not implying something. And how thousands of commercials are made and each one is carefully crafted with each word chosen for just the right effect by those geniuses at the ad agencies.

At least that's what you guys are talking about.

I'm just getting my post count up.

Errr...let me rephrase that...

You know what I just realized?  I haven't seen this commercial on TV.  I haven't thought about Ortega taco sauce in years.  And here we all are, talking about Ortega.  We have been collectively PWNED.

ah but mr strange does that taco cream in your mouth? you know, cream - the totally out of place and out of context word that you just happened to decide to use in this instance?

sort of like pop. aside from applying ortega, how exactly does one make a taco pop?  in fact, what does "pop" even mean when talking about food or taste? i know how to make a room "pop" by applying vibrant color.  i know how to make a balloon pop or that soda is sometimes called pop

and i know of only one way to make a taco pop - though ive never once heard it used to describe a particular taste, texture or quality of food

im sorry, im really not going to let this one go smile (what the hell does that say about me? hopefully more about my distaste for advertising and television which sexualizes young women than about any excessively perverted and faulty wiring in my head smile)

You need to rewatch the clip.  Her taco "pops" because of the Ortega taco sauce she's using.  It's not as nonsensical as your depraved mind thinks it is.
