Catch the Taco Bell S-Class reference yesterday?

Anyone catch the reference to the S-Class yesterday? I didn't quite catch the whole commercial but my ears perked up when I heard "S-Class" mentioned. I think it was something like "what do you think this is, an S-Class?"

Yeah, I saw that. I suppose because it's food, not a car, they can get away without worrying about trademark infringement. Maybe they'll tie-in a give away deal, like a game to play to win an S55. I'd be stocking up on tacos then for sure.
The S-class is for the steak thingy, maybe they'll come out with the new C-class for chicken!!!
I think either one is equipped with "seat heating"!!!!

Yeah, I saw it and was turned-off by the blatant false marketing...

TacoBell food might be a good value, but there is definitely nothing S-Class about it!

Speaking of which...did anybody see the commercial for the 4 wheel drive S-type jag where the jag is running in front of a snow plow and all the other cars are running behind the snow plow. Did anybody catch that the first car behind the plow with the girl and her father was an E-class?

On the Jag commercial, I'm sure guys like Muskie (from Michigan) and Yal (from New York) noticed that the plow didn't really seem to be accomplishing all that much. If there had been a foot or 18" of snow on the road, I doubt that Jag would have been in front of the plow. As it was, I'd say the guy driving that plow was just out goofing off, or maybe clearing the shoulder out a little farther, the road bed itself looked clear to me.
In either case, the commercial seemed to send a message that it's OK to overtake a plow, even though they never actually showed the Jag passing the plow. Not usually a smart thing to do.

Certainly not S-Class material with less than 35% beef.

Taco Bell uses beef? Now that's a good one.

It used to be OK at $0.39 for a bean burrito but now it's getting too expensive to eat at Taco Bell.

I ate at Taco Bell once. Their solgan Run for the border had a totally different meaning for me. Couldn't trust a fart for days!
