Doritos: "Mouse Trap"

by Jen Creer, posted Feb 3rd 2008 10:32PM
This was a decent commercial too. We hear opera music from Carmen, and a man in a suit with slicked back hair is using Doritos to set a mouse trap. He sets his trap, and then sits back in a comfy armchair. He is sitting in the chair, listening to the music and he starts stuffing his face with Doritos. Suddenly, the wall contorts as a huge figure starts bursting through the wall and comes at the man. A huge, human-sized mouse (obviously a guy in a mouse suit) tips the chair back to the floor and starts beating Opera Guy for his Doritos.

I admit it. I laughed out loud.

This commercial built the anticipation perfectly. That it was obviously a guy in the mouse suit and so unexpected made it funny.

You laughed out loud at this low-budget piece of crap, yet you didn't appreciate the Life Water dancing lizards? Wow.

Somehow, I have to take her side. She didn't get the Sobe commercial, but that commercial was at least a year late. Thriller virals have become too popular and mainstream. The subject and choreography weren't that good either. Changing the setting would have been enough to make that commercial better. They probably spent most of their budget getting Naomi Campbell though

But it's a guy... in a mouse suit, and not even a very good one. Besides, didn't they run that same commercial last year?
