Star of Taco Bell Ads is Dead

Gidget

Gidget

 

Gidget the Chihuahua, star of 1990s Taco Bell commercials has died. She was 15. Gidget suffered a stroke late Tuesday night at her trainer’s home in Santa Clarita, Calif., and had to be euthanized, said Karin McElhatton, owner of Studio Animal Services, which owned the dog.

Gidget starred in the Taco Bell commercial in the year 1997. Gidget was seen as a male dog who proclaims: “Yo quiero Taco Bell,” Spanish for “I want Taco Bell.”

This was supposed to be a single ad. But due to the popularity of the advertisment, Taco Bell decided to shoot more ads using Gidget. This turned out to become a massive campaign for Taco Bell that lasted 3 years, from 1997 to 2000.
