  • Doritos® Dinamita®

Released on February 5, the first-ever Doritos Dinamita Super Bowl commercial blows away expectations by introducing fans to Dina and Mita, a duo of unlikely heroes whose love for the spicy, flavorful of Doritos Dinamita propels them through any obstacle that stands between them and their new favorite snack. In the commercial, aired during the third quarter of Super Bowl LVIII on Sunday, February 11, Ortega, Dina, and Mita search for their favorite Dinamita chips when actor Danny Ramirez snatches up the last bag for himself. Since nothing will stop Dina and Mita from getting their hands on Doritos Dinamita snacks, the feisty pair leaves Ortega in the dust as they begin an explosive pursuit. For weeks, the brand dropped teaser images and videos (found here, here, here, and here) fueling fan speculation about what Ortega and Ramirez may have up their sleeves. Doritos became the first sponsor this year to wrap a Las Vegas building in honor of Super Bowl LVIII when a giant Doritos Chip took over the South Strip. During the promotion, fans in Las Vegas had the opportunity to win Super Bowl LVIII tickets by spotting and visiting the chip and to snag free Dinamita snacks from the Doritos Dinamita Slot Machine on Fremont Street on February 9 and at Allegiant Stadium on February 11, while supplies last. Fans also had the chance to win exclusive merchandise.On game day, the stars of the Doritos Dinamita ad spot, Dina and Mita, made their debut not only during the in-game commercial but also appeared around Las Vegas during Super Bowl LVIII. Following Super Bowl LVIII, Doritos Dinamita will maintain its momentum with an expanded focus on flavor and spice as part of its comprehensive marketing campaign. Dina and Mita will extend their presence to TikTok, appearing in videos alongside some of the platform’s top creators. The brand plans to continue collaborating with influencers, running TV and digital ads, conducting in-person sampling events, and launching a college ambassador program.
