Taco Bell denies making a commercial featuring two gay men cuddling on a picnic blanket and getting married, but officials for the fast food chain say they are “impressed” by it nonetheless.

When the commercial was leaked onto YouTube earlier this month it touched off speculation that it was a real, unaired Taco Bell ad.

On Friday Mediaite suggested that it was never shown because “Taco Bell got cold feet.”

But then late on Friday Taco Bell issued a statement to Mediaite that read:

“We didn’t create this ad, but we can see the people who did share the same Live Mas passion for our brand — and our breakfast — as we do.

“Although we cannot condone unauthorized use of our intellectual property, we are impressed with their work and would be open to meeting with (the commercial’s creators).”

So, stay tuned?
