In case you haven’t heard, Taco Bell has been named Ad Age’s 2013 Marketer of the Year and we couldn’t agree more!  Check out Ad Age’s feature article, HERE.

Taco Bell first grabbed our attention when they upgraded their tagline from “Think outside the bun” to “Live mas” and launched new creative aimed at millennials, supported by $280 million in measured media last year, according to the Ad Age DataCenter.

We’re excited to see what they do with the rest of the year, especially in the branded entertainment space, like this entertaining mini-documentary they created with super-fan Justin:

We’re also digging their newest “Feed the Beat” project, designed to help fans discover new bands and bands to discover new fans. You can watch that fan-made “rockumentary” below:
