RIP Gidget

Gidget the Chihuahua has died at the age of 15.

It has been along time since America has watched a commercial with this cute chihuahua who debuted in 1997 and continued to wag that tale with her tag line "Yo Quiero Taco Bell" until 2000. Even though the ads caused criticism for Mexican stereotypes, America loved it. Lets face it. Everyone who thinks of Taco Bell thinks of Gidget. I know I do.

Gidget went on to play a small role in Legally Blonde 2 with Reese Witherspoon. Also, earlier in the year. LA TIMES report that Gidget received $42 Million from Taco Bell for not being properly compensated in the ad campaigns.

Gidget's trainer, Sue Chipperton stated "She made so many people happy"

Yes She did Sue. Yes She did.

I hope you love it in the Big Chalupa!
