This sounds like something out of The Onion, but it’s completely real.

The Insider reports:

Around 100 college students held a candlelight vigil at Taco Bell after it suddenly closed down

With the lyrics of “Amazing Grace” on their lips, and flickering candles warming their fingertips, Penn State students said goodbye to something they dearly loved: Taco Bell.

Around 100 Penn State students gathered for a candlelight vigil on Sunday to mourn the loss of their local Taco Bell in Downtown State College in Pennsylvania.

“In the arms of the angel, fly away from here,” the students crooned, singing along to Sarah McLachlan’s famous tune as it played from a nearby campus ambulance that had stopped by the vigil to pay its respects.

Prajesh Patel — who organized the event — stood up to give a speech, dressed in a taco costume.
