Taco Bell is apologizing for their old breakfast menu.

Pete Davidson has joined forces with Taco Bell to be the face of their newest advertisement "The Apology."

"We’re sorry. We went a bit crazy with our breakfast. All you need in the morning is tasty, simple food," the company captioned their YouTube video starring the "Saturday Night Live" alum.

Davidson, 28, is seen walking through a Taco Bell location when he said, "Sometimes we go too far. I have and that’s why Taco Bell has hired me to make an apology for them."

"Taco Bell went a bit crazy with its breakfast. It was too much," he continued. The commercial then highlighted a classic breakfast item the company serves, the Breakfast Crunch wrap.

The company previously had items such as the naked egg taco and the waffle taco that was not a big hit among consumers.

Taco Bell issued a statement to roll out their newest campaign. The ad was created to "acknowledge it might've taken innovation to unwelcomed heights with some of its past breakfast creations (looking at you, Naked Egg Taco and Waffle Taco) … In retrospect, when it came to living más just after getting out of bed, some of these breakfast offerings went, well… a little too far on the Live Más scale. After all, there's a reason it's called the morning routine," global chief brand officer Sean Tresvant said in a statement.
