An ad that aired during Sunday’s Super Bowl has tragically led to a national shortage of Flamin’ Hot Doritos, due to it being just too effective.
The combination of dancing animals with the song “Push It” was too much for the market to handle, as Flamin’ Hot Doritos were off the shelves as of midday Monday. While Doritos was hoping the ad would be successful, the company did not plan for this and is assessing its emergency options. One option may be to make an intentionally shitty ad to slow sales.
