Waluigi's Taco Stand is a fictional mock video game. The game features the Nintendo character Waluigi as the proprietor of a taco stand. The game has inspired fan art, parody commercials and joke rumors about its existence, which, as the rumor goes, has been hidden by Nintendo.
While many reported that the rumor of the game's existence started on a since-deleted GameFAQs message board in 2002, the earliest available mention of the game was posted by smashboards user Time/SpaceMage on June 9th, 2006. They wrote, "Which reminds me, this one guy on GameFAQs suggested 'Waluigi's Taco Stand.'"
On April 13th, 2012, FanFiction.net user Yoshizilla-Rhedosaurus published a piece of fan-fiction entitled "Waluigi's Taco Stand." They describe the story as "Waluigi crafts a taco stand in the south end of Seaside Hill. He'll get many customers and money, but he'll have to deal with the effects of stupidity like Princess Daisy's farting, Toadette's innocently cute antics, high quality Siivagunner nonsense, plus Dry Bowser and Petey Piranha. 5 years old and with 500 chapters! Expecting anything out of this fanfic? TOO BAD, WALUIGI TIME." The post received more than 480 reviews and 135 favorites in six years.
Six years later, on August 8th, 2018, YouTuber Kaze Emanuar published a mock "lost" commercial for the game. The post (shown below, left) received more than 63,000 views in less than two weeks.
Four days later, the YouTuber published a video of a person supposedly unboxing and playing the game advertised in the commercial. Within 10 days, the post (shown below, right) received more than 94,000 views.
That day, eBay  user kaze_11 posted the game on the site, along with a picture of the box, cartridge and instruction manual (shown below). The game sold for 505 euros or $605.
