A Smothering Jewish Mother Smothers Son With Taco Bell, Son Eats It Up

Stereotyping is bad behavior in the real world, but in a comedy sketch stereotyping can turn to pure gold, as it does here in this new spot for Taco Bell.

The writing, casting and acting are all top notch here. This is a great commercial.

The thing I like most about it is how the storyline ladders right to the unique product benefit–that the burrito is smothered. You know how creatives say “I wish I’d made that spot?” This is one of those spots (made my Deutsch LA) many of us wish we’d made.
