Taco Bell launched a new ad today aimed pointedly at fans of the McDonald's breakfast menu, showing a stuck-in-the-'80s dude giving up his beloved Egg McMuffin in favor of Taco Bell's new Waffle Taco, all to the tune of "Old Macdonald Had a Farm."

McDonald's struck back by offering free coffee for a few weeks. See how we break down the battle of the fast-food breakfast below.
