Welcome To Philly: Taco Bell Mexican Cheesesteak “Commercial”

I don’t know if this is real or fake (though I’m pretty sure it’s fake). I don’t know if Taco Bell ever actually marketed a “Mexican Cheesesteak” (although it appears that they might have, at least in California), or whether this is a complete fabrication. And you know what? I don’t care. Because this video–whatever it is–is one of the funniest things I’ve seen in a month. We found it yesterday afternoon. I’ve watched it probably a dozen times since. And I have laughed every single time.

So now, as we begin to close out our broadcast day here at Foobooz HQ, I offer it to you. The Taco Bell Mexican Cheesesteak commercial. Enjoy…

    as usual they have to throw in peppers and onions…I hate when places do that…do any of the steak places here even put green peppers on the cheesesteaks?? hot peppers maybe….

    That’s the most suburban part of South Philly I’ve ever seen.

  • mmgth

    I don’t get what’s funny. “…welcome to Philly…stomp!”?

  • F***n Hilarious

    Yes…I giggled like a little school boy.

  • Tex

    Serves that pinata right for wearing a Rangers jersey. Funny stuff.

  • Lord Chumpterfold

    Funny because its shitty?

  • TacoBellisHell

    Wait why do these “South Philly” dudes sound like they’re from Northern NJ or NY / Long Island?

    Also, what a big, sprawling manse- would that be east of Broad or west of Broad?

  • Mike

    The green peppers are just weird. Apparently sweet peppers on sandwiches are pretty unique to Philly.

  • Mike

    But yeah, it’s hilarious, because it’s pretty clearly shot in LA, with broadly drawn charicatures of how left coasters think South Philly is.

  • barryg

    Green Peppers on cheesesteaks is gross, why do people eat that outside of this area? So weird.

  • diParma

    What Joey Vento wasn’t available for this spot…?

  • bryan

    Could be Washington Township.

    Worst Philly accents ever. I live in LA and actually auditioned for the Jack in the Box ad for a Philly cheesesteak sandwich. I was very excited to be able to go full “Philly” with the accent (as a Philly native). Of course, they gave it to someone who sounded like a Brooklyn Dodgers fan…
