Doritos Perpetuates Male (And America's) Idiocy


one of the Doritos Crash the Super Bowl XLIV commercials. Called The Smackout, it's predictably idiotic. You know the concept. Girlfriends sit by while boyfriends perform stupid stunts as if they were five year old retards bullies on the playground during recess. No wait, five year olds aren't stupid, they're just young and inexperienced. When 30 year old guys do this sort of thing, it becomes clear why America trails the rest of the world in IQ.

This commercial's only redeeming quality? Cleavage.

Doritos to Buy Its Way Onto USA Today's Pointless Ad Meter


With the idiotic goal of getting three spots in the USA Today Super Bowl Ad Meter, Doritos will air three consumer-created commercials in the Super Bowl this year. And they've upped the prize from $1 million to $5 million.

Last year's winners, Joe and dave Herbert will be on hand for the unveiling today on Madison Avenue which has, ith the city's permission, been dubbed Doritos Drive as well as Madison Avenue.

Yea, way to hype a survey that means absolutely nothing.
