NY Times Reader Questions Attractiveness And Skin Color Of Alaskans

Too cute to be an Alaskan?

“There’s a girl in the commercial, smiling and eating a taco. She’s gorgeous. Maybe I’m wrong, but she’s awfully light-skinned, and looks pretty polished, for the middle-of-nowhere Alaska.” [Elliott/NYT]

A concerned Times reader thinks they’re calling bullshit on a commercial for the Doritos Locos Taco, a taco from Taco Bell with a shell made out of Dorito.

Citing this commercial, the Times reader expresses some interesting ideas about how folks who like in Alaska should look, apparently never having seen the Palin family (pretty light skinned!), Northern Exposure or that Anne Heche advice show.

Speaking of Doritos Locos tacos, which TB “launched” in March and reportedly sold over 100 million of by June, on Monday Taco Bell said they’d sold 100 million more. That makes the DL taco the “the most successful product launch in Taco Bell’s 50-year history.”
