The dog who is best known for the Taco Bell commercials has died. I think Gidget may have been responsible for a jump in the popularity of her breed back when the commercials came out. Who could resist the cute pup spouting its desire for Taco Bell?
Gidget, who surprisingly was a female despite the male voice in the commercial, died of a stroke Tuesday night at the age of 15. Her trainer said Gidget really liked being on the set but prefered to sleep most of the time when she wasn’t working. She had a few jobs after her Taco Bell stint, including playing Bruiser’s mother in “Legally Blond 2.”
Sounds like she had a happy, productive life. Thanks for introducing me to the cuteness that is a chihuahua, Gidget!
