It’s finally time for Taco Bell to fulfill the promise it made before the 2018 NBA Finals and give a free taco to any foodie in the United States who wants one.
Back in May, the Tex-Mex restaurant announced the third iteration of its popular “Steal a Game, Steal a Taco” promotion. In order for Americans to win a yummy free snack from the fast food chain, one of the teams in the NBA Finals had to “steal” a win on the road from the home team, explained Taco Bell in a press release.
“While only one team can take home the trophy, fans everywhere will once again have an added opportunity to celebrate the Finals thanks to Taco Bell,” said Kerry Tatlock, Taco Bell’s head of NBA marketing partnerships, about this buzzworthy deal.
“We know one thing is for certain, everyone will be rooting for tacos,” added Marisa Thalberg, the global chief brand officer for Taco Bell.
When the Golden State Warriors won Game 3 against the Cleveland Cavaliers at the Quicken Loans Arena in Cleveland, Ohio, on June 6, they made all taco lovers’ dreams come true, as previously reported by Inquisitr.
The Golden State Warriors, led by star players Steph Curry and MVP Kevin Durant, actually went on to sweep the Cleveland Cavaliers in the 2018 NBA Finals four games to none to become basketball’s championship team. The Warriors also won the title in 2017 and 2015.
