Taco Bell is planning a massive comeback celebration for the return of a famous menu item, in a rare move that lives up to the anticipation.
Although few would have guessed this, the Mexican fast-food business is putting up a TikTok musical on Mexican Pizza, starring Dolly Parton and Doja Cat, both of whom are huge fans of the layered meaty discoid.
The musical will premiere exclusively on TikTok on May 26 at 8 p.m. EST and 5 p.m. PST, while Taco Bell says the Pizza will be back on the menu on May 19.
The resurrection of the pizza was first announced by rapper Doja Cat during a live Coachella performance in April, and then confirmed by the company later.
The lighthearted musical is about "The heartbreaking narrative of individuals who fought to bring Mexican Pizza back to life.
It will include "significant moments from Doja Cat's remarkable journey," as well as music by Grammy winners Abigail Barlow and Emily Bear.
Doja Cat and Dolly Parton have both expressed their dissatisfaction with Taco Bell's decision to remove Mexican Pizza from their menu in November 2020.
Parton told Insider in January that she frequently ordered the item and that she thought the business should bring it back.
Doja Cat has long advocated for the reintroduction of Mexican Pizza, even singing a jingle about her passion for the dish on TikTok for the chain. Since then, she's been dubbed the "The Taco Bell people's voice
After TikToker Victor Kunda's version of what a Mexican Pizza musical rehearsal may look like, which was based on Doja Cat's original jingle, the idea for the musical was born.
In addition, for the first week that the popular menu item is returned, Taco Bell is providing Mexican Pizza aficionados delivery through DoorDash (May 19 to 26).
With a minimum purchase of $12, DashPass members can enjoy $2 off one Mexican Pizza by using the coupon code MEXPIZZA at checkout.
