Random Taco Guy (Gal) Friday episode 1!

By Dayton from SLN More Blogs by This Author


In our first official rtgf we found two women coming out of Costco. They were very confused at first and then rejected our offer of the free taco. The friend of the person we talked to was quick to shoot us down but after some discussion they took the taco! I think my favorite part of the whole thing is them staring at us as we drive away! bahahaha!!

Our original study criteria was:

1. What is the response of the person being offered the taco? Confusion at first and then denying the offer, going along with her friend. But she eventually did take the free taco after we explained what it was!

2. Does the person show reluctance to take something free? Especially food? Yes! The woman we approached was very cautious about taking free food from someone she had never seen before and her friend was even more suspicious! 

3. Does the person's acceptance or denial of the free gift change your original opinion of him or her? Your first impression?  Personally I think they had some bad experience with random strangers in the past. They seemed very quick to say no. But they also possessed reasoning ability to see that we were not about to kill them and took the taco!

This question is where you guys come in! Watching the video, what is your opinion about the person based on the taco acceptance??

  • I may just be a little video-challenged, but where do I find the video? I wanna watch it! :)

  • Looks like the video is working in the post now. Some people don't know how to embed youtube videos...

  • sorry I only know the dark arts of editing....its okay seth is like an embedding NINJA

  • First off, very epic first video. :) I think the two ladies were a bit worried about how the taco was presented to them...from a car window. If I was them, I'd be more willing to accept the taco if someone walked up to me with it instead of driving up. But then again....people go to drive-thrus to get food, so why would it matter?

  • Ha! That was in the pre-taco-distribution rhetoric: 'So, are we going to walk up to someone this time?'

  • Yeah the Honda minivan is preeetttyyy creeppyy jkjk lol

  • Where's the video?!?!?!

  • I think it depends, if you were walking down the street and reached in a bag and said to me hey do you want a taco? I would say No thanks. But if you were standing in front of a restaurant that made tacos and you were handing out samples (depending what's on it) I would most likely say Yes. I would not eat a fish taco - they don't make sense to me!
