Del Taco has finally hit Facebook and Twitter, arriving with its own series of web-isodes that star Wes and Barry, the chain’s new slacker mascots. Wes is the host of the strange “Del Taco Super Special Show” and Barry plays the Oscar Madison-esque foil. Meanwhile, restaurant trash cans transform into people, models play pinata with a giant taco, and cartoon pets jam on the floor like everyone’s just been served burritos packed with DMT. Fast Food Maven tells us the Mexican quick service chain was initially reluctant to jump on the social media bandwagon, so leaping in with a commercial that would make H.R. Pufnstuf ask what the flying frijole is going on is a natural first step. Right? The restaurant is offering a free classic taco if you vote for your favorite clip by registering on its Facebook. Check out the first episode below.
