This recent superbowl round of ads had my jaw on the floor. Cat killing and greyhound racing (which, if you search about that, involves terrible conditions for those breeds.) I found all kinds of outrage, thankfully (but not enough though,) over these recent ads, so I went into Facebook and joined a group speaking against Doritos ads, until I saw the posts were from 2010 about a Doritos ad of a guy shocking his dog when it wanted his dorito chip. So animal cruelty is a longtime favorite focus of Doritos.

(During my searches, I came across an MSM blog from a woman who described other recent (superbowl) ads such as a baby getting catapulted from a slingshot thing? And an 'm&m' forcing a gf to disrobe..)

I figured I'd pick 'Fragile Earth' because earth's animals are fragile at the hands of reptilian psychopath humans.

I know there was another thread about some illuminati themes from this recent games' 'entertainment' breaks.

I'm wonderin if anyone is bothered by this policy of Doritos', and thinking like I do, that it and the recent superbowl surrounding theme, are awash in a 'celebration' of shocking callousness.

I thought the Doritos commercials were great... take a xanex and enjoy all the other bullsh*t going on in the rest of the world. If you get your panites in a bunch over some creative advertising, your really going to hate whats going on in the real world.

Yeah really...it's so hilarious that a Pug who is brachycephallic is racing a Greyhound/sarcasm.
Another commercial, was a "baby sling"... sling your toddler into a bag of fattening junk food...real smart.
Guess, I already don't expect compassion from Monsanto corn's junk food poster child.

Thats funny.

I am against animal cruelty but really did you except more from us? We cant even be nice to EACHOTHER! Want something really evil to rail about? Google China tiger farms or bear bile farms. They are so terrible the animals starve or kill themselves just to end their own suffering.

We are an evil lot sometimes I wonder if someone shouldnt end this experiment and shake the earth clean like a big ol Etch A Sketch.

Wow... Some people watch the Super Bowl commercials for the wonder and awe of what someone in marketing considers worth spending more money for 30 seconds on than most will make across a lifetime.


And...some watch them to tear them to pieces and find entirely new ways to be offended and get mad.

Isn't life a little short with plenty to stress from already without adding the topic of commercials that aren't even real? Yikes...

Dude, seriously? They aren't promoting animal cruelty. They were being funny.

A Great Dane bribing a human with Dorito's? FUNNY.
A Pug-looking dog wearing Sketchers shoes outrunning Greyhounds? FUNNY.

If you think they were promoting animal cruelty, you need to take a step back and take a breather.

Oh get a life it's a joke and an ad designed to get you to at least recognize the brand. There was no harm intended now if you really want to get pissed just think about what Obamarama has done to our country now that's some serious S#%t to raise your hackles

The "cat-killing" commercial was a joke about a dog burying cats because a lot of times dogs don't like cats.



These things really made your "jaw hit the floor"? You should probably get out more...

I don't watch the superbowl and I don't give a rat's behind about their million dollar lame ads. Therefore, please enlighten me about the cat killing, because if they were joking about it, I'll flame the cheese out of them on their facebook page.

Yeah, I'm one of THOSE people. I don't eat that crap anyway (no GMO corn for me, thanks), but I am a Certified Crazy Cat Lady. Do you have a link to the offending ad, or a description?

Yeah so once again... people being touchy over adverts...


i really do not understand why people watch adverts or TV at all and get offended....

see all you folk talking about ANY advert in a bad light.... the advertisers would like to thank you...

see if i create an advert... 50% find it funny and 50% find it out of order then it means 100% know and are talking about my product...

advertising - 1
people who feel the need to join facebook groups against advertising - 0

there this old saying about no publicity is bad publicity.... im sure as you join your groups you are aware of such things though



much love

"No publicity is bad publicity"...except, of course, if you're talking about food. It make work for Hollywood wanna-be's , and movies and books, but food, especially junk food, is competing with many other junk food products, and bad publicity can seriously hurt the food corporation's bottom line if people call a boycott on it.

For example, when Kellogg's had a fit about Michael Phelps being photographed doing a bong hit and fired him as their spokesperson, a great many boycotted Kellogg's and went over to Post instead. Their profit margin for that quarter was down enough to hurt them. I guess Kellogg's forgot all the stoners who get the munchies for cereal.

Most food purchases are split second decisions, and any PR disaster means many will not purchase that product and buy something else instead.

Take a step back and have a breather, should be the new ATS motto.

That or Les Grossman's line to the drug cartel holding Tug Speedman hostage in Tropic Thunder:

"Literally take a step back and F@#% YOUR OWN FACE!!"

See the problem is actually although there profit margin dropped low and it hurt them well it didnt... it dropped sure, and then there shareholders were a little annoyed as they only made tens of thousands on there investments instead of hundereds of thousands on there investments for say.. a quarter or maybe two.... but then the next advetising campaign comes out and all is forgotten excpet from hippies/protestors and crazies, who to be honest are 50% not the demographic you are selling too anyway..


a brand like doritos could go anywhere with there advert and for every person who dislikes it there are plenty who like it.

the dropping a spokes person due to the out of work activities is entirley different from a deliberate advert put out to either cause a giggle or shock... they want the issues and they want the turmoil... child want doritos and mom says no due to cat killing advert? that kid is absolutley buying doritos when he's round at his friends...


next doritos advert will have dancing bikni girls and a cool hip musician saying doritos rock.. and all will be forgotten

I think I'm probably the only one who doesn't watch superbowl commercials

but I agree with this from believer101

A Great Dane bribing a human with Dorito's? FUNNY.
A Pug-looking dog wearing Sketchers shoes outrunning Greyhounds? FUNNY.


as well as this from hawking

The "cat-killing" commercial was a joke about a dog burying cats because a lot of times dogs don't like cats.



of course I grew up watching this

All kinds of messed up messages there eh?
