For the sixth year in a row, Doritos is crowdsourcing its two Super Bowl ads. Five finalists have been selected but MJ is rooting for the Doritos goat (whose name, oddly enough is Moose)!
Finalist Ben Callner (who also happens to hail from the ATL) said that his goat-owning friend (and eventual ad co-writer) Steve Colby inspired the spot. “So my buddy came in, and he literally just kind of off-handed said, ‘Hey, my goat eating and crunching on food is really funny,'” he said in a making of video. “And that was it. ‘OK, that was a really random sentence, thank you.’ And so we Googled ‘goats eating chips,’ and we cracked up.” Watch the hilarious ad now:
“They’re so sweet,” Colby told Fox Atlanta. “I really got goats because I thought that they wouldn’t be affectionate, I just kind of wanted some animals. But they want to be right next to you … they’re wonderful.”
“Goats 4 Sale” is up against 4 other consumer created ads: two starring dogs, one starring men in dresses, and another that has a blind man hitting another fellow in the groin. Doritos execs will select one winner and the other will be selected by online votes. Thus far, “Goats 4 Sale” has the most views on the Doritos Crash the Superbowl site (currently 460,000).
