After eating a handful of the spicy new Doritos Blaze chips, you’re going to need to cool down somehow. (And wipe your hands off, too.) How about with a sip of the new Mountain Dew Ice?
The snack and soda seemed like a perfect fit to some marketing folks, anyway, and indeed the lip sync rap battle between Peter Dinklage — channeling Busta Rhymes and shilling for Doritos — and Morgan Freeman, lip syncing for Missy Elliot and promoting Dew Ice, works just fine.
Do we sort of miss the Doritos Crash the Super Bowl contest wherein amateur filmmakers put their best foot forward and made scores off excellent ads relying on quality content over simple star power? Yes. But Dinklage and Freeman rapping it out is a fine consolation prize.
