This Taco Bell campaign is getting exactly what it planned to get from the start: free publicity by media stupid enough to publish this nonsense. Not only that, they published all the details of the ad campaign with price points and all. You sure this article isn't an advertorial or the OS got paid for product placement?

So, to most of you here complaining about his lawsuit just because you don't like his music, or him as a person...I'm guessing you think anyone should be able to advertise their product using his likeness, or anyone's likeness they please? I'm sure you'd change your mind if you saw your picture on a billboard advertising a herpes treatment.

He stole the name from the half dollar. The way I see it he owes all the American people money for using the 50 cent name and trashing it. I threw all mine out when he took that name.
