Yo Quiero Taco Bell - Gidget Has Died


Gidget passed away last night at the age of 15. She was the Chihuahua best known for her Taco Bell ad campaign. I loved these commercials and so here are a few of them to remember why everyone in the entire country kept saying Yo Quiero Taco Bell. Constantly.

I hate these little yapping ankle nippers, so I don't get the sads when one of them dies.

I just checked dlisted, who has this story too, and he called this summer, the summer of death. I laughed a lot. The end.

@ Sue Ellen Mishkey, glad I'm not the only one who laughed at MK's Summer Of Death comment.

I'd rather read a story about Gidget than another about Jon and Kate.

Chihuahuas have an undeserved bad reputation. Mine (Benicio del Toro) has a wonderful personality (caninality?). On walks he runs up to everyone he sees squeaking with joy.

it was a clever ad campaign for taco bell. and there HAD to be more than one dog, didn't there?
still, too bad, i loved the ads.
lutefisk, they had stuffed taco bell dogs up your way?? dang.

lutefisk said...

Bunny--when the campaign started, probably about 12-14 years ago, they issued different stuffed dogs every few weeks.
Coming from a long line of Chihuahua
lovers, we made sure to get them. I have the collection from "Legally Blond", also.

How sad!!! My Mom loved this doggy!!! Chihuahuas are the best little dogs ever.

My oldest son(18) has a Chihuahua named Lucy, who looks just like Gidget. We used to take her to the nursing home my Mom was in for visits, and everyone fell in love with her.


Viva Chihuahuas!!!
