Is This Doritos Marriage Parody For Real? VIDEO


It's unclear whether this "Doritos Marriage" video, produced by Atlanta-based production company Felton Interactive Group and found at Good As You, is actually meant for Doritos or is just an example of Felton's aesthetic. And like Doritos themselves, one's opinion of the video will largely depend on personal taste.

Give it a sample and let us know what you think AFTER THE JUMP.

  1. Stupid and homophobic.

  2. Highly offensive. Makes light of an important civil rights issue and plays into the hands of the "slippery-slope/people-will-be-marrying-goats" argument against our fundamental rights. Just shows how flippant other people can be about our rights. Marriage equality is not some puerile joke.

  4. Wow, it took all of two seconds to determine this wasn't an actual ad paid for by Doritos. More brilliant work from Belonsky.

    Seriously, did you even consider determining the story behind this before posting?

  5. I know no one expects investigative reporting at this site, but we should expect a bit more than "blog first, ask questions later." The author of the post should take two seconds to google before posting.

  6. This is probably for the Superbowl contest I have friends submitting commercials for it right about now. Doritos supplies assets to create the commercial like the end logo, and you can submit anything you want

  7. The Dorito was called a "Wife" This is a Hetero problem. Throw the question at the Hetero-folk.

  8. I have to agree I do not like marriage equality being made light of! This is about us being able to visit spouses (people we have spent many years with or decades) in hospitals or jails. This is about us not having our houses sold out from underneath us by homophobic or greedy families when the person we love most in the world passes. This is about us not paying more taxes that other married people. This is about us not being denied survivor benefits. This is about being able to make medical or end of life decisions. Some may think it is all about having an expensive silly party But it is way, way more than that.

  9. Awful!

  10. I imagine it's an entry for the "Doritos Crash the Super Bowl" contest, rather than a parody.

  11. I feel about this the same way I feel about Doritos - awful.

  12. Real or not, the humor is pretty lame.

    Posted by: MichaelJ | Nov 15, 2012 3:03:41 PM

  13. NOPE! way...awful...stupid...offensive
    ...bad taste...purile...sophmoric...makes me think less of Doritos

  14. Gee aren't you guys over reacting for what is basically a lame parody. It's just stupid- not stupid funny.

    Posted by: jaragon | Nov 15, 2012 4:14:50 PM

  15. I agree - this is likely for the super bowl contest... and it's stupid.

  16. Jack-in-the-Box did the exact same thing (wedding ceremony ending with the bride being eaten) with a bacon cheeseburger several months ago.

    If it's for reals then Frito-Lay needs a new ad agency ASAP.
