VIDEO: Taco Fiends

A Las Vegas taco restaurant hilariously trolled a pair of thieves by releasing security footage with captions and animations mocking the burglars’ taco-stealing efforts.

According the the NY Daily News, the 3-minute video, posted to the Frijoles & Frescas Grilled Tacos’ YouTube account on Dec. 17, starts with footage of a man getting out of a car around 3:30 a.m. and trying to throw a rock through the store’s window. The caption reads: “Poor guy just wants a taco.”

By Saturday morning, the video had gone viral with 2.9 million views — but the restaurant said the goal was mainly just to catch the burglars.

“We take full responsibility for what our tacos cause people to do,” the video notes, before putting out a request to help ID the bumbling burglars “so we can get them the tacos they rightfully deserve.”
