Security footage shows three men breaking into a closed taco restaurant in Las Vegas, Nevada, on December 16, 2015. The restaurant turned the robbery video into a commercial.

LAS VEGAS, Nev. (Dec. 24, 2015) — When life gives you surveillance footage of your business being ransacked, turn it into lemonade — or tasty frijoles.

A Las Vegas taco place that was burglarized a week ago transformed the robbery footage into a hilarious commercial that has many Internet users craving corn tortillas and fresh ingredients.

The security footage shows three men breaking into a closed Frijoles & Frescas Grilled Tacos establishment on December 16 and sacking the restaurant.

The taco joint overlaid text throughout the commercial, describing how desperately the intruders want a taco, as the thieves are seen searching the place and grabbing the cash register.

After the robbers flee the scene of the crime, the video cuts away to close-up shots of tacos topped with grilled meats, fresh herbs and guacamole, and a disclaimer from the restaurant stating it takes responsibility for the fact that its tacos may cause people to do unexpected things.

The video also urges viewers with any information on the robbery to call the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department.

CNN was unable to reach Frijoles & Frescas for a comment. But it seems a taco reward has not been offered by the restaurant.

The ad has been shared on several social media sites and has inspired a lot of people to get tacos for lunch.
