What was reported as a hoax in a small town in Alaska has become a public relations opportunity for Taco Bell.

Earlier this year, someone started spreading rumors in Bethel, Alaska — population 6,000 — that a Taco Bell was coming to town. According to news reports, residents were deeply disappointed to learn it wasn’t true.

Opening a Taco Bell restaurant was not viable in a small town accessible only by boat or air, and hours away from the hub of Anchorage, company officials said. So Taco Bell did the next best thing: “Operation: Alaska.”

The Irvine, Calif.-based chain airlifted in a taco truck and gave away an estimated 10,000 of its new Doritos Locos Tacos to Bethel residents before returning the truck to California.

The “Operation: Alaska" event was turned into a short film and 30-second commercial (watch both videos at left). The latter aired for the first time Wednesday night during the Major League Baseball All-Star game.

Taco Bell officials said they never found out who was responsible for the initial prank.

After Hoax, It’s Taco Bell to the Rescue

Bethel Alaska thought they were getting a Taco Bell, but it was cruel prank, so Taco Bell stepped in to lift their spirits.

When you have a hankering for a Doritos Locos Taco, nothing else will do. Unfortunately for residents of a small Alaskan town, satisfying that craving means making a flight to Anchorage — some 400 miles away. That’s why folks in Bethel, Alaska were thrilled when flyers began to appear around town announcing the arrival of their very own Taco Bell. Sadly those flyers turned out to be a hoax — and residents were left, once again, bereft of destinations for an emergency 2 a.m. nacho bell grande fix.

Taco Bell executives learned of the hoax and decided to play Enchirito hero and fly in a feast. According to MSNBC, the company airlifted enough ingredients from Anchorage to make 10,000 Doritos Locos Tacos. “If we can feed people in Afghanistan and Iraq, we can feed people in Bethel,” company CEO Greg Creed told MSNBC. The effort, which Taco Bell dubbed “Operation Alaska,” was a savvy marketing move and a delicious dinner all rolled into one, burrito style. The operation garnered thousands of Facebook likes and fans were able to follow the long-distance delivery as Taco Bell tweeted out a a series of photos of the air drop.

The 6,200 residents of Bethel get to divide up the 950 pounds of seasoned beef, 300 pounds of lettuce, 150 pounds of cheddar cheese, 500 pounds of reduced fat sour cream and 300 pounds of tomatoes that the Taco Bell donated for the free town feast.

So where did the rumor start that Taco Bell was coming to Bethel in the first place? The hoax started as a juvenile prank, where flyers were posted around the town, about 40 miles up the Kuskokwim River from the Bering Sea, announcing the opening and including a phone number to call to inquire about job openings. The number belonged to the prankster’s victim. While the victim may have had a lot of unwelcome phone calls, it was the whole town of Bethel who got hurt. Luckily Taco Bell knows a good customer service deed when it sees one and was there to save the day.
