Taco Emporium  (2011)  2 min  Cary, NC

Writer/Director: Nick Karner

With: Chris Burner, Dean Jones, Tim Rogus

IMDB SYNOPSIS: A nice customer faces a moral dilemma as a slick ad man questions his decision to tip a cashier.


     I saw a commercial in which a man convinces a customer to keep his tip and spend it somewhere else instead of giving it to his waiter. I thought that was horrible so I made this short about what the cashier in the commercial should’ve done.  The burrito I bought from Taco Bell.  The line, “My eyeballs are blistering!” is a lift from Robot Chicken.
