So Taco Bell recently ran this contest for “up and coming” bands to receive $500 of free Taco Bell food while on the road (that translates to about $175 worth of food you might actually want to eat). One of the winners was the (arguably already up-and-came) vegan indierocker Ted Leo. Pitchfork jumped all over the story, but it turns out that Ted never even entered the contest. Some prankster or overzealous fan did it on his behalf.
Despite the fact that some vegans around here are totally fine with Taco Bell, Ted Leo is not: “I have no desire to be attached to the Pepsi corporation, which also runs KFC, etc.”
What, this is a nonstory? Oh well, you read it anyway.
