Taco Bell helicopters 10,000 tacos to Bethel, Alaska after hoax

Media_httpwwwtrbimgco_ulcuk

As far as customer service stunts go, this one was pretty epic: A helicopter sent to a remote Alaska town bearing a Taco Bell truck, itself bearing ingredients for 10,000 Doritos Locos tacos.

The 6,200 townspeople of Bethel in the distant western stretches of the state got the long-distance delivery after the Irvine-based fast-food company took pity on them.

Last month, fliers trumpeting the chain’s debut in Bethel got residents salivating. After all, cheap Mexican-style food in the land of sled dogs and sub-zero temperatures isn’t exactly easy to come by. The nearest Taco Bell is some 400 miles away in Anchorage.

But instead of seasoned beef, Bethel citizens ended up with the taste of dust when the promise of Taco Bell turned out to be a hoax.

When Taco Bell executives learned of the cruel joke, they sent a free consolation package on Sunday bearing 950 pounds of beef, 500 pounds of sour cream, 300 pounds of tomatoes, 300 pounds of lettuce and 150 pounds of cheddar cheese.

Currently it sounds like Movable Type is the preferred blogging platform
available right now. (from what I've read) Is that what you are using on your blog?
