The first Doritos commercial last night was my favorite of the evening. A lot of the Super Bowl ads tried to use surprise violence to sell their product, but this was the only one that worked for me. It’s just better crafted than the Bud Light guy getting thrown out the window or the other Doritos guy getting hit by a bus. (FilmDrunk liked the Cash4Gold ad, which was pretty good, too.)
And a special note to Budweiser: NO ONE GIVES A SHIT ABOUT YOUR HORSES. A horse love story set to “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough”? Die. Oh, and how about Jake the immigrant horse? Why does a fourth-generation American horse have a Scottish accent? How are such obviously retarded people in charge of multi-million-dollar ad budgets?
