I usually spend my Superbowl afternoon trying not to fall asleep while teams I don't really care about are playing. Except for the commercials of course. So this year I was (again) a little disappointed by the lack of a stellar commercials to keep me entertained. However, I was unpleasantly surprised and a little upset by this commercial from Doritos. Am I overreacting about the content of this commercial? I don't think I'd be happy if Indiana secretly
(The Husband is currently trying to talk me down from being extremely miffed at this ad, so I know I am perhaps being overly sensitive to the cat vs. dog and perhaps subtle animal abuse/abandonment themes I might be imagining. Still Doritos, can't you stick to adorable pugs busting down doors of boorish taunting boyfriends?)
Last Year's Doritos Commercial Praising Doggie PowerAlso I almost forgot how we are supposed to let our dogs out of doggie doors to chase cars when they feel like it! Although slimming down from eating all those Doritos is probably a good message for our pooches. (See what I did there?)
And while I'd like to complain about how greyhounds are abused in racing, this French Bulldog is just too cute for words.
I'm not a huge fan of Budweiser (or beer in general) but I like showing a bit of love to a mutt and mentioning rescue dogs in particular. Rescue dogs are great! (But probably shouldn't be treated as servants.)
So, overall, I'd give the commercials this year 2.5 stars. Let's have some cat love next year!
