Rejected Doritos Ad is Epic Beyond Words [Video]

Redditor lpinchet posted this video to the social media site a few hours ago:

My friend made this spot that was rejected by Doritos. I think it’s hilarious, what do you think reddit?

This guy should have won the contest hands down, there’s no doubt in my mind about that.

  1. That's "rejected" in the sense of "released to various outlets on the net in the hopes that it will go viral", right?

  2. Meh! Why is this so funny… is it because he is some sort of alchemist, but he is not aware of it?… is his acting? I get that stoners might find it funny tough…

  3. It was a Superbowl commercial candidate – and while hilarious, not to the level that Superbowl commercials have risen, that's why it was rejected.
    I wouldn't be surprised to see it air at some other point though – since in the submission agreement, there is certainly a line that basically states "You're giving this to us, we can do whatever we want with it"

    • My recent experience is that Super Bowl commercials are predictable and not nearly as funny as they were 7-8 years ago. Edit in Betty White fighting a tiger in the background, or something equally random, and it's got Super Bowl Magic all over it.

  4. Well, we see what DORITOS did with its gold – rejected it.
    I can hear Fred Sanford now: "You big dummy!"
    Because, this rules-and-a-half.
