Taco Bell has always created elevated work for its most premium value products, so for the return of the limited time 1$ Double Stacked Tacos, the brand leaned into another surreal, magical creative concept.

Tapping into Oscar-winning director and special effects artist, Robert Stromberg (known for his work on Avatar, Alice In Wonderland, and Maleficent), the spot crafts a magical circus world of the Double Stacked Tacos casting real circus performers, aerialist, and fire breathers.
