A group of former advertising interns are claiming they came up with the idea for the Doritos Locos Tacos… almost 20 years ago!!
Of course, tons of people have had that idea long before Taco Bell did, but obviously people are going to claim the idea is theirs; those tacos are making millions upon millions of dollars!
What's crazy though, is these former interns actually have proof that they came up with idea nearly two decades ago!
They had a competition to come up with a new product, and guess what they submitted… Dorito Tacos.
They have marketing materials and photos of them and they even had the same two flavors: nacho cheese and cooler ranch!
The interns aren't looking for money, just a little recognition.
Oh and what's funny is their Dorito taco idea didn't even win the intern competition! Ha!
Check out the video (below) to see the Dorito taco idea from 1995!
