Turns out, Taco Bell is run by some kind of sentient potato. Who knew? Though the reasoning behind removing potatoes from the menu now makes more sense.


Your challenge this week: Spread this potato man. 

I expect he cried a lot after filming this promo. Being asked to go out and sell your own kind to people so they can rip them apart and cook them isn’t easy. Be strong whatever-your-real-name-is, be strong.

And yes, I made you a nice potato CEO. Enjoy.

Next week, I’ll pick a winner and some of my favorites!

Please note that the image submission rules have changed just a little bit. We’re looking for images that are 800 pixels wide now!

How To Submit — Instructions

1. Create your ‘Shop and save it to your desktop. Images must be at least 800 pixels wide.

2. Go to the bottom of this post

3. This brings up a comment window. Click “Choose file” if you’re uploading your ‘shop from your desktop

4. Alternatively, you can upload the ‘Shop to a free image hosting service. I suggest imgur. Then paste the image’s URL into the field that says “Image URL.” Note: this must be the URL of the image itself, not the page where it is displayed. That means the URL ends in .jpg, .gif, .png, whatever.

5. Add editorial commentary and hit submit and your image will load. If it doesn’t, upload the image to imgur and paste the image URL as a comment. I will look at it.

6. Large-size images may not upload properly, though we have seen some animated .gifs upwards of 5 MB. If you’re still having trouble uploading the image, try to keep its longest dimension (horizontal or vertical) under 1000 pixels, or the whole thing under 2 MB.

This took a lot more work than I was expecting.
