I'm a shrimp blogger, WTF??

I'm wasting time before dinner with friends, which is the only reason this next post exists. Because if I were really watching TV, I wouldn't be watching commercials... ah, I love DVR. However, I've got 30 minutes before I need to head out and I just happened to see a commercial that is so absurd, so hilarious, so annoying, so SOMETHING, that I had to post a short rant.

Taco Bell is airing a commercial that begins with an Englishman who says "I'm a Shrimp Blogger". And he says this as if it is a normal title and we should not be mind-boggled. Then he explains briefly some of his shrimp-blogging exploits. Then he tells us how he heard about the new Taco Bell shrimp taco and he wants one. Then the commercial ends with this Gent saying "I can't decide if I'm going blog about it or keep it for myself", or something to that effect. Ahhhhhhhh. That doesn't even make sense to me. I mean, can't he just eat the taco and then blog about it. Oh the conundrums of said Shrimp Blogger.

I'm pretty sure this is one of the worst ads I've seen in a while. I'm also pretty sure that if they existed, I'd hate elitest Shrimp Blogging yuppies. Lastly, I guess T-Bell better hope Shrimp Bloggers exist, because who else would be crazy enough to order shrimp from Taco Bell?


  1. did you also post this on an adult swim message board? It's freaking hysterical and I agree. I just googled "Is a shrimp blogger a real thing?"

    Who the fuck comes up with the ideas for these commercials???

  2. I think they're referring to our shrimp blog!
