The Taco Bell chihuahua has finally found its successor.
35-year-old, father of two, Jake Booth awoke from a 48-day coma and uttered the words you'd expect a 23-year-old, father of two goldfish would say at 3 a.m. after getting kicked out of a bar: "I want Taco Bell."
Following a bad bout with bronchitis that turned into
pneumonia, which turned into
double pneumonia, Booth went into a medically induced coma and when he awoke he did not let his cravings go unheard. Booth turned to his friend and immediately let him knew that he wanted Taco Bell.
Unfortunately, Booth had to wait another three weeks! And you thought your craving couldn't wait.
Once well enough, Booth did what anyone with Taco Bell would do: He devoured eight-and-a-half crunchy tacos with a great big smile.
Taco Bell caught wind of the story and sent Booth some merch that is absolutely fuego.
Hopefully, Booth becomes the new spokesperson to replace the long-eared dog that was everywhere during the late 90's.
Booth's brothers have set up a GoFundMe page for their army veteran brother who loves Taco Bell to help out with medical bills.
So, next time you unwrap a cheese and potato burrito from Taco Bell at 3 in the morning, remember to think about Jake Booth who had to wait 48 days for a bite of a crunchy taco.[via Huffington Post] [Feature Image Courtesy US Magazine]
