When Greg Carlson’s Las Vegas taco shop was burglarized, he deiced to turn the footage into a television commercial. Security footage shows three men breaking into the closed restaurant and ransacking it, looking for cash or other valuables. Carlson was alerted by an alarm system, and found the glass door smashed and two empty cash boxes missing. Since he knew he would have expenses due to the break-in, Carlson used the footage to create a new advertisement for the store. Underneath the surveillance video, he put text describing how the intruders desperately wanted a taco. As the robbers leave, the video moves to close up shots of the food the restaurant sells, and ends with a disclaimer that their tacos may cause people to do unexpected things. Just in case, Carlson also included a line urging viewers with any information to contact the police department. Carlson said business has been up since the ads began running. He added, “I don’t think we expected this kind of reaction, but we hoped for it. We’re really pleased and surprised.”—Jim L. Wilson and Jim Sandell
