Thats right ladies and gentlemen...
Doritos (yes, the chip brand) will be sending their advertisements into outer space in the hopes that another civilization will receive the transmissions...

for a brief overview of this project, please watch the following video...
complements of Danny from the Gradual Report...

after watching this video, I thought to myself...
"Hey Odessy (i actually thought of my real name, but I can't give that away to you creeps
j/k, but seriously, I can't), do you think this is an actual project planned by this giant corporation, or could this simply be the work of a comic genius?"

so, I typed "Doritos space advertisement" into a search engine I like to use quite frequently named google, and decided to check for myself...
The project is in fact real, and to prove it, I will share with you guys the first website that came up... I didn't feel like looking for a better site...

Here you have it:

Apparently unconvinced that the whole of Planet Earth is a large enough customer base, Doritos is teaming up with astronomers to broadcast their advertising into space.

The advertisement will be targeted at part of the Ursa Major constellation, a zone astronomers believe contain the conditions for life. Doritos obviously thinks the predicted inhabitants of Ursa Major are “extreme” enough to handle colored flavor dusted tortilla chips and will not blow us up for bombarding their planets with unwanted advertising for a product that doesn’t exist there.



Well, there you have it...
The first advertisement sent to another Galaxy, courtesy of Doritos potato chips!
Now the question is, what are they going to advertise?
Their Nacho Cheesier?

or Cooler Ranch?

Well, the picture of the cooler ranch is obviously bigger, so I bet they use that one...

Doesn't this make you proud!

By the time another civilization gets the message, fast food will have killed us all.

Well, thanks for doing your part in spreading this viral campaign.

It's bad enough I'm subjected to ad campaigns in every facet of life but I didn't expect it here at ATS.
