The internet has been buzzing for the last day or so with two 30-second videos that appear to be ads for Doritos snack chips. Both ads feature gay themes, and hinge on the idea that Doritos are so delicious, they might make an otherwise straight man engage in activities that make him seem gay to others, with the intent of creating humorous results.
There has been tremendous confusion however, about what these ads actually are. Some say they could run during the Super Bowl – others say the ads were created by fans of Doritos, and will never air anywhere. So we reached out to Frito-Lay to find out what the truth is.
