No, that's false... 

 

And quite frankly THE most hilarious counter point i've ever encountered in my life ever.. be it internet or in person.


huh?    An actor   


I'm saying that's false, most people did not think he was the actual CEO.

Correct me if I'm wrong, friend. Your point is as follows: It is impossible to verify the authenticity of the alleged winners.People were unable to discern the fact that an actor in a commercial was not a Sony executive without the little text. 

 

Now, when I put it like that it sounds even stranger. The second point about Kevin Butler has absolutely nothing to do with the first one. It doesn't even follow, a fallacy worthy of Descartes himself. Even if you're only implying that some people are too stupid to understand that Kevin Butler was not simply an actor and therefore would be unable to discern whether the winners are real or not it still makes no sense whatsoever


To teach is a moment's superiority; not to, everlasting.

Fabulous!

Re: anyone won a ps4 via taco bell yet?

Oct 10, 2013

I remember the winner fiasco they had with the Vita. I had already bought a vita but just hearing about it made me sad. Anyway.... I would love to win a PS4... but I have 100 bux down on a pre order for it so screw it. I'm just going to buy it flat out.

However I am considered a hostile worker apparently...

I won today. I live in NC and stopped for lunch at a Taco Bell with the guy I work with. I'd seen the commercials advertising the PS4 but didn't think anything of it when I got the $5 box. After I finished eating I went to throw it away but the guy I work with kept joking that I should enter the code. I didn't wanna carry a box full of taco meat and whatnot back and really didn't expect to win anything, but I took a picture of the code and the number to text and we left. We had an hour and a half drive back to work and I was super bored so I texted the code to the number listed on the box. I immediately got a text back saying to respond YES to the official rules, blah blah blah. I sent the YES text and almost immediately received a text that said "Winner! Pin number xxxxx Subject to verification. Click to redeem your prize" with a link. At this point I was super skeptical but clicked the link anyway. I figured it was either total BS or if I was lucky I won a free taco just as Lombax Warrior said. I entered the pin from the text and filled out the captcha thing and was taken to another screen where I was asked to submit my full name, address, date of birth, phone number, and email address. At this point, I ALMOST exited the browser on my phone. I was so sure it was just an attempt to get my information to send me spam. I went ahead and filled it out anyway and submitted it. The next page said " Congratulations! You are a winner! Taco Bell is hooking you up with a PlayStation 4 system, copy of Knack, and a 1 year PlayStation Plus membership." along with a date which they will be shipping it to me. I probably could have crapped a chocolate chicken at that point.

 

It's been about 4 hours since then and I received an email and a winner's confirmation number. I assume they will contact me closer to the end of the contest to collect my validation information and whatnot. I don't know the exact odds, but they have to be astronomical. I rarely eat Taco Bell and when I do, I never get the $5 box. Even getting the winning code, I assume most people don't even take the time to check the code before throwing the box away. I'm scared that something will happen or some loophole will come about and I won't get the PS4, but I'm trying to do everything by the books. I read the official rules and whatnot and I qualify so hopefully I'll get the console.


That rules man! Yea I'm hoping they send out a validation email. Did they do that for Vita winners?

I'm 0-for-2 so far, and don't expect to win, but will get boxes almost daily regardless. Tough to eat them without gaining weight!

My Taco Bell has one with a Cheesy Gordita Crunch, so I'll be getting that one today. \m/

I'm not sure about the Vita. I very rarely eat at Taco Bell and I'm essentially 1/1 in my attempts to get a PS4 haha. I sent a ticket in asking about how and when I should go about validating my date of birth and eligibility and got an email back saying that their system identified me as a potential winner and that there would be no notification of winners being confirmed or prizes being shipped out. Not sure how I feel about that.

I just brought 3 boxes, didnt win. Im not going to buy another one. Chances on winner is very slim. More slim than the super slim ps3, :smileytongue:.  Already have my pre-order ps4 paid off. If sony went with BK or MD, i would buy more. Taco is like poop to me, i dont eat them. I just give the food for bro/sis and used the codes.
