Presumably swimsuit model Chrissy Teigen already has her fair share of internet stalkers, but now she can add Taco Bell to the list of creepers. The fast-food chain sent her a handwritten letter and a pair of custom gold script rings—"taco" says one, "bell" says the other.
"We like you. So we wanted to give you this custom Taco Bell ring," reads the note. "Only a handful of special ladies like yourself are getting these custom rings, so treasure it." What did Teigen do to deserve this honor? "You're funny, cool, and you like Taco Bell," the note explains.
Teigen has some competition for Taco Bell's heart, however. Here's the letter they sent to Acacia Brinley, who, according to Google, is also a model and possibly an aspiring actress. "OMG @TacoBell IM CRYING THANK YOU OH MY GOODNESS GRACIOUS HOLY COW JUICE IM SO HAPPY," she tweeted.
Jessica Lu, the model/actress who played Ming Huang on the MTV television series Awkward, got one too.
As did Miss California Leah Cecil, former Days of Our Lives actresss Kristen Storms, and YouTube sensation Alexa Losey. "Today was the best day of my life hands down," tweeted Losey, regarding the gift.
The rings appear to come complete with a $20 gift card and, in some cases, an invitation to Taco Bell's test kitchens at the company's LA headquarters—the very same test kitchens where Cool Ranch Doritos Locos Tacos were recently conceived. With any luck, that meeting of minds will indeed happen, and it will be live Tweeted for all to enjoy.
