Taco Bell Petitions for More $2 Bills to Promote $2 Deal Meals
after the financial crisis, we fully expected the federal reserve to draw more mainstream public attention. but a taco bell marketing ploy isn’t among the first things we would’ve predicted.
“dear governors of the federal reserve” is how the fast food joint started its tongue-in-cheek (we hope) full-page newspaper ad today to promote its new $2 meal deals. as part of the stunt, the home of the “beefy 5-layer burrito” asked the fed to circulate more $2 bills “to meet the pending demand.” it even started a facebook petition, with prizes for signing up.
