The Super Bowl 2012 just got more expensive for Doritos. The Doritos Super Bowl 2012 Ad titled Sling Baby won the Facebook version of the USA Today Ad Meter. The Doritos Super Bowl Ad titled Man's Best Friend won the traditional USA Today Ad Meter 2012.
The USA TODAY Facebook Super Bowl Ad Meter 2012 winner has been announced and Doritos Super Bowl Ad "Sling Baby" came out on top for 2012. The ad features a grandmother who creates a way to sling her grandson – with a rubber band-like setup - across the yard to grab a Doritos bag from a taunting boy.
The Facebook community rated the Doritos Super Bowl ad Sling Baby a 4.33 (on a scale of 1 to 5 stars). Doritos has now to pay $1 million to the creators of the Sling Baby Ad. Doritos has already awarded $1 million to the creator of the other Doritos Super Bowl 2012 Ad that won the traditional, panel based USA Today Ad Meter.
It is quite astonishing that Doritos took both top spots of the USA Today Ad Meters. It also worth noting that the Man's Best Friend ad did not make it into the top 5 of the Facebook USA Today Ad Meter.
The Doritos Crash the Super Bowl ad competition again sourced the best Super Bowl Ads again. Doritos has already won several times since the first Crash the Super Bowl open ad competition.
