Taco Bell will be serving fries for the very first time. The fast food chain recently announced that one dollar nacho fries are on their way – and how they’re promoting these fries will have you on the edge of your seat.

Josh Duhamel stars in a movie trailer parody called "Web of Fries" to promote the latest addition to Taco Bell’s menu…and he’s poking around where he shouldn’t be! Watch to find why "Web of Fries" comes in at number one on our Viralist.

Craving some more Taco Bell? We decided to celebrate the eatery’s newest addition by offering three fun facts you’ve been dying to know!

1. How did Taco Bell Get its Name?



Taco Bell is named after its founder, Glen Bell, who launched his first venture into the fast food business by opening up a hot dog stand in San Bernardino, CA in 1950. Glen decided to try his hand at selling Mexican food when he noticed a Mexican restaurant drawing droves of customers across the street from his hot dog stand. This inspired Glen to open Taco Tia in 1952, which later reincarnated into the Taco Bell we know today.

2. What Was the Name of the Taco Bell Chihuahua?



The iconic Taco Bell mascot who rose to fame in the 1990s with his “Yo quiero Taco Bell” slogan was named Gidget! The pint-sized canine passed away in 2009 at the age of 15. Rest in peace, Gidget!

3. What happened to Taco Bell’s Seafood Salad?



Gidget isn’t the only Taco Bell legend who’s no longer with us. Taco Bell’s menu boasts a litany of discontinued items, which includes the seafood salad and chili cheese burrito. If you thought Taco Bell gave you gas before, these items sound like a recipe for digestive disaster!
