2001 Taco bell and GUIs

I feel validated when someone doesn't ask what is UX because they already know.

Hard to believe it but yes, Taco Bell ran commercials analogizing technology & fast food. Describing their edibles as having a "gooey interface."

I remember thinking "wow, people know about UI design, finally." Really though, is UI design mainstream? No, but it was cool anyway.

Watch another commercial that calls food a "new handheld"

I busted out some old VHS tapes from when I was in High school. I had no experience with programming or GUI's at the time. Once i heard the gooey interface comment i knew there was some nerd action going on behind the scenes.
