Michael Ian Black for Taco Bell

if ur both a Michael Ian Black fan AND on twitter, you’d know over the last 24hrs or so Mike has been on a campaign to get Taco Bell to use him as their next spokesperson. proving that having 1.5million followers can be effective as hell, many of his followers tweeted similar msgs to Taco Bell: and a movement was born. now anyone down for the cause is rockin this campaign poster. i woulda posted this last nite but wordpress was crackin the shits, however, i wake up today and i found that there are now also accompanying ads on YouTube to further convince Taco Bell of their grievous error (that being NOT, up to this point, hiring Michael Ian Black). everybody, “getttt onnnn the BUS”, –Killface.

there’s actually a couple of vids. this first one’s made by animator and composer Spencer Nunamaker (aka mooQuu) (also check out his blog for some interesting shit).

vid #2 is a simple Michael Ian Black + Taco Bell = True Luv 4 Ever equation.

if u wanna keep updated, just search for #mibfortacobell on ze twitter. also, approximately 12hrs ago, Taco Bell responded to the outpouring of tweets with this:

let’s make it happen.

Dartmouth Aires cover Slick Mahony’s “Sex Syrup” A Cappella style

i will never ever get tired of the various ways fans are keeping The Jeep ridin (or KTJR!, which is now the established shorthand for Turquoise Jeep fans). these guys do an impressive job. i love how a capella groups all have this unified swag (you never a see personality-less dunce in an a capella group, and even if they WERE a personality-less dunce, u wouldn’t be able to tell while they were performing). ANYways, enjoy and share.
