Doritos was the second most-discussed brand on social media after they released their Super Bowl 2019 campaign featuring Backstreet Boys and Chance the Rapper.
The advert was an infusion of the classic Backstreet Boys’ ‘I Want It That Way’ vibes and Chance’s hot rap on nachos. The product placement was on point, so was the artistry. The video has received 13,587,558 views till date.
