NON-TRADITIONAL - Recruiting Strategies — Proximity Recruiting Using a Taco Truck

I found a rather bold article on ere.net today that talked about Tokbox recruiting from Yahoo by setting up a taco stand across the street from the building and offering a free lunch to anyone wiling to have a quick chat. The speed that they talked to these potential recruits was helpful in that the quick conversations helped to keep the employees from becoming too nervous. Some might consider a campaign like this in bad taste, but then again, who is losing and gaining the employees?
What are your thoughts on a bold move like this towards your competitors?
