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.
