With Nacho Cheese Doritos about to be eaten by me for lunch, I thought I would share this great classic commercial from 1979 that features the great actor, Avery Schreiber. I am not sure if this is supposed to be a silent film style or what — the various components of the commercial make it very confusing to figure out exactly what they were going for…
It looks like Doritos is having some sort of flavor naming contest. Not sure what it is about, but I really like the Retro Spice Doritos video. Commodore 64 graphics + Doritos? That really takes me back.
About a year ago I was digging through a junk drawer at my mother’s house and found one of these Monster Game Pieces that was unopened. We never drank Pepsi, so I imagine the game piece came from a bag of Doritos. I took it out to take it back to my place to scan it, but somewhere along the way it got lost. It bummed me out. Luckily I have this commercial to share that worked perfectly Halloween.
For some reason when given a choice between crunch and crisp, most Americans will choose the crunch. Let that be a lesson to all you future chip and cereal makers.
