Internet freaks out over Super Bowl Doritos ultrasound ad
A Super Bowl Doritos ad featuring a woman who goes into premature labor when the father teases his unborn child with nacho chips has drawn both outrage and applause on social media.
On Super Bowl Sunday – the biggest advertising day of the year in the US – marketing giants pulled out every trick in the trade, enlisting celebrity power to peddle their brands and creating strange and wacky storylines to try and retain viewers’ attention.
But while most ads garnered a chuckle at most, it was a Doritos commercial titled “Ultrasound” that had the internet freaking out, with some viewers calling the ad offensive and inappropriate, and others laughing at the outlandish humor.
I did not see this ad but some from the pro-choice side such as NARAL and some news sources such as the Huffington Post seem to be upset about it. The complaint seemed to be that it humanized a fetus.
It may have even been an award winning ad.
