Attention taco fans and folks who love free food: You have the Warriors to thank for this deal, and four hours on Tuesday to get in on it.
Not only did fans of the Golden State Warriors rejoice at the team’s 108-97 victory against the Cleveland Cavaliers in Game 4 of the NBA Finals on June 10, but taco fans also cheered on the win. Why? Because the Warriors stealing Game 4 means free tacos from Taco Bell for everyone in America.
It’s part of Taco Bell’s “Steal a Game, Steal a Taco” promotion. If you’ve been watching the NBA Finals, you’ve no doubt seen the Taco Bell commercial advertising the promotion, which promised to give all of America a free Doritos Locos Taco if a team wins (“steals”) a road game in the Finals.
“Stealing a game on the road in The Finals is a tremendous accomplishment, and with ‘Steal a Game, Steal a Taco,’ fans across the country can share the win,” said Kerry Tatlock, NBA senior vice president of global partnerships, in a statement.
The Warriors “stole” a win on the road in Cleveland, so now Taco Bell is giving away free tacos on Tuesday, June 21 from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m.
“At Taco Bell, we love to champion the underdog and rally behind sports’ most exciting moments,” said Marisa Thalberg, Taco Bell’s chief marketing officer, in a statement.
If you want a free Doritos Locos taco – and, yes, you can pick your favorite flavor — Fiery Doritos, Cool Ranch or original Nacho Cheese — all you need to do is go to the nearest participating Taco Bell location on June 21 between 2 and 6 p.m. Just remember, when you’re crunching into that taco, you have the Warriors to thank.
