Taco Bell Crime of the Week!

This one is from last week and involves Taco Bell itself!

A federal appeals court Friday ruled that Taco Bell is solely liable for $42 million in breach-of-contract awards to two Michigan men who created the diminutive mascot that starred in the Irvine fast-food giant's hit $500-million advertising campaign in the 1990s.

Yo quiero appeal. And you know what's most offensive about the campaign, especially in the original ad shown below? The music? If Taco Bell's going to hawk bad Mexican food, at least do us the honor of featuring some banda or conjunto norteño, not pinche salsa!!!
