A few years ago when I was in the States, a friend and I thought we'd pay a visit to a branch of the American fast food chain Taco Bell. We each had around $8 in cash, and we just so happened to be blaaaazed. Luckily, $16 in cash will pretty much get you every single item on Taco Bell's menu, so we were more than satisfied by the time we walked out the store with our drinks, having forgotten to wait for our food.
This event, and subsequent visits to TB, have made me wonder who decides these low low prices. Thanks to a recent video, I know that one cog in the wheel of garbage faux-Mexican food for stoned people must have been Benjamin Golden. Golden was a senior marketing manager at Taco Bell, so presumably had a say in pricing. Sadly he no longer holds this position on account of his actions in the below video:
In the clip Golden, a resident of Newport Beach, California, appears visibly intoxicated. Shit-faced in fact, to the extent that he faceplants onto the seat next to him when the driver pulls a u-turn. Brilliant. He also appears too drunk to properly explain the destination to his driver, Edward Caban, who eventually pulls over and asks him to exit the vehicle.
At this point, Golden goes all frat-douche and starts hitting Caban, who promptly replies with a Diablo dose of pepper spray. You wouldn't want that on your cheesy gordita crunch! Golden was soon arrested by police, then released after posting bail with his fat Taco Bell corporate salary... which he will now no longer recieve.
In a statement given to Adweek, Taco Bell said: "Given the behavior of the individual, it is clear he can no longer work for us. We have also offered and encouraged him to seek professional help."
Don't worry bro, you can still get a buttload of TB even if you're broke.
