Ronald McDonald loves Taco Bell's breakfast.
By now, you've probably tried Taco Bell's new breakfast items (check out our sister blog Short Order's take on the awesome waffle taco).

For years, the Mexican fast-food chain has nipped on the heels of McDonald's like a rabid Chihuahua in an attempt to gain some traction and market share.

In the past, Taco Bell has enlisted the aid of a celebrity chef (Lorena Garcia) and a Chihuahua in its advertising campaigns. But now, Taco Bell has recruited the least likely of spokesmen for its morning meal campaign -- Ronald McDonald!

BC Tacos' Brett Chiavari and Travie McCoy: lunch worthy of a billionaire.
This past weekend the Cadillac Championship at Trump National Doral Miami saw an array of stars both on and off the famous (and revamped) Blue Monster.

But with all these Champagne-type options, it seems that celebs are real people, after all. And what do real people like? Tacos!
