Frito-Lay: Those Aren't OUR Gay Ads
Frito-Lay: Those Aren't OUR Gay Ads

Frito-Lay wants you to know that they have nothing to do with all those gay-themed Doritos ads pretending to be Super Bowl contenders. GLAAD reports:

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. According to Frito-Lay Director of Public Relations Chris Kuechenmeister, the latter is true. He said the pair of ads in question were two out of 5,600 that were submitted to the company for its Crash the Super Bowl contest. Furthermore, the YouTube page on which the ads appear is a fan-made page, and not the official page for the Crash the Super Bowl contest. Kuechenmeister said the ads in question were not among the finalists chosen by a panel of judges, and have no chance of airing during the Super Bowl or otherwise.

2. As a member of the "football crowd" I find your statement offensive.
I can enjoy football and support full GLBT rights.

4. There's nothing wrong with being gay, but eating Doritos in a sauna should be illegal. n/t
