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.edit on 6-2-2012 by Saucerwench because: x

"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.
A Great Dane bribing a human with Dorito's? FUNNY.
A Pug-looking dog wearing Sketchers shoes outrunning Greyhounds? FUNNY.
The "cat-killing" commercial was a joke about a dog burying cats because a lot of times dogs don't like cats.
