Danny Trejo is back for a sequel to his Old El Paso ad of 2013. And this time he’s facing a new nemesis: a child with a silly Danny Trejo wig and moustache combo.
El pequeño Danny and the gravelly voiced original are shown on the ‘Grand Mini Tortilla Tour’, serving up Stand ‘N’ Stuff treats in regular and Mini sizes. Geddit? Trejo is game as ever, sending up his tough guy image as he battles his diminutive rival (who matches him in the deadpan department) to win the hearts, minds and stomachs of their customers.
Tension builds until Trejo’s cheese grater dramatically breaks. Some Hamblin/D’Agostino-esque sporting behaviour saves the day - leading to a cinematically happy ending. Aw.
