Super bowl Commercial Seriously Crossed the Line

By Xavier James

Although I wasn’t the only one who found the Doritos super bowl commercial disgusting and repugnant, I am one of the only people not afraid to talk about it. What’s the difference between Janet Jackson’s exposed breast and a man licking another man’s fingers and pants? Answer: One was live and the other was previously recorded. But my kids didn’t need to see either. Bad taste is bad taste. We as a society continue to digress to the point where capitalism is an anything goes environment controlled by special interests. Did someone really want to sell Doritos bad enough to think an advertisement that disgusting was funny?

Every time I see Doritos I’m going to think about that crazy looking White dude licking that Black guy’s finger. So, it’s unlikely I’ll be buying Doritos anytime soon. Of course advertisers are going to deny the ‘gay’ theme in the commercial. The overt homosexual reference was clear but so was its subliminal homosexual programming. That’s why the religious right is always up in arms and I can’t say that I blame them this time. If it was a woman in the commercial licking fingers and sniffing crotches it would have been left on the cutting room floor. But “guy on guy” action is okay, huh.

I personally don’t want to see a religious commercial during the super bowl no more then I want to see a homosexual advertisement. If homosexuals are indeed behind this awful marketing they should be aware that it caused more harm then good to their cause. The finger licking, crotch sniffer was weird, aggressive and antagonistic. And his unwelcome intrusion into our living rooms is what people are going to remember most. Taken from
