We keeping getting emails about the above Doritos spot being a “Super Bowl” commercial, but it was uploaded back in November? And don’t companies generally like to keep their $3 million 30-second ads under wraps until the big game? Well yes, but this ad is part of Frito-Lay’s “Crash The Super Bowl” contest, where anyone can submit a spot for the chance to have it aired during next month’s game. This one, submitted by “jjkenjr,” features the constantly recycled theme of somebody “scoping out” not the hotties in plain sight, but the product. Now quick, start calling this ad homophobic because it shows two fit fem guys lounging by the pool, BECAUSE THOSE DON’T EXIST IN REAL LIFE. (Either way, this ad didn’t make the finals.)
UPDATE: Looks like there’s at least one more spot, this one from “philprincephims” and featuring a sauna and a little stereotype about black men being hung. Know what’s funny, though, about stereotypes? Making fun of them.
