Pete Davidson Is Still Out There Selling Breakfast Crunchwraps
Another 4/20 has come and gone. After a day of delighted vegetation, the stoners have shaken off their slumber and groggily dragged themselves back to their day jobs. The post-holiday haze that haunted their morning commute was likely immense, but the more resourceful among them made a pit stop along the way to visit an old friend for a pick-me-up — like Pete Davidson, they got their breakfast at Taco Bell.
Last year, the fast food giant and diarrhea distributor struck a deal with Davidson that formed a partnership more predictable than the Saturday Night Live star and any single female celebrity. Davidson was a fitting spokesperson for the stoner favorite, but, this month, both the late-night lothario and Taco Bell decided that it was time to clean up their image with a fresh round of commercials showing their more refined sides. The new campaign, which is set to launch on April 23rd, features “Peter Davidson,” a buttoned-down morning show host whose tailored suit masks the public bathroom stall dividers on Davidson’s chest and arms that may have made him seem like an unserious spokesman.
The new “California Crunchwrap” is supposed to be a healthier, grown-up and toned-down breakfast alternative to Taco Bell’s usual fare of four ingredients smashed together in the most immodest assaults on the human gastrointestinal tract, so Davidson’s more outrageous presentation was scaled back for a subdued approach to hawking Crunchwraps.
Let’s be real, Taco Bell — Pete Davidson has never woken up before 11 a.m.
