Well, this is totally whacko and also amazing.
In a bid to promote its new menu item, the Naked Chicken Chalupa (you know, the chalupa with a shell made entirely out of crispy fried chicken), Taco Bell has decided to launch a sort of anti-Chicken Chalupa campaign.
From what we can discern, the fast food chain has created something called the "Council For Eating Fried Chicken The Same Way You Always Have" (TCFEFCTSWYAH), which is a fake committee that thinks Taco Bell's chicken-shell innovation is dangerous.
"We at The Council for Eating Fried Chicken the Same Way You Always Have devote our every effort to protecting the populace from the dangers of nontraditional fried chicken. The healthy, traditional consumption of fried chicken is a respectable, time-honored practice, and as such should be defended at any cost from nefarious form-twisting interference masquerading as “innovation.” Taco Bell’s new Naked Chicken Chalupa, a shameless display of unsanctioned and dangerous experimentation, should be avoided at all costs," reads the fake council's website.
In response to this, Taco Bell is pretending that it has been forced to open up an actual "speakeasy" so that adventurous, cutting-edge diners can continue snacking on its new Naked Chicken Chalupa.
The so-called speakeasy is actually located at 399 Lafayette Street in Manhattan, New York City, and will be giving out free fried chicken tacos and complimentary cocktails to any diner brave enough to eat the banned meal.
The speakeasy, according to Delish, will be open from 5-10 p.m. on Jan. 25, and will take only 500 guest reservations. Diners who want in on the fun must call a secret hotline to get in.
