The gay blogosphere has been abuzz today after Doritos leaked two gay-themed commercials. Gawker reports Frito Lay, the maker of Doritos, plans to air the ads during the Super Bowl. However, Towleroad says the ads are just submissions in the “Crash the Super Bowl” contest, which I think is probably the case (Doritos will air the winning commercial during the Super Bowl).
It doesn’t appear that either ad is a finalist in the contest. I’m not surprised, not only because they’re a little too controversial for a mainstream corn chips brand, but because they aren’t particularly good. The production quality is there, but there’s nothing new/fresh/original about the ads, and the humor is a little lazy.
