What would the Super Bowl be without a star-studded commercial in between? Well, on Jan. 25, sports fans were sent reeling with excitement when Doritos gave a sneak peek of their Super Bowl LVII commercial ahead of the game. The short ad features the “Queen of Hip-Hop,” Missy Elliott.
The teaser, which was posted to Doritos’ official Instagram account, captures Elliott chatting with Jack Harlow on the phone. Missy says she is excited to “collab” with Harlow, but viewers are thrown for a loop when the “First Class” rapper asks if she would be down for a “love triangle” instead.
“I don’t know about that,” Elliott says before the video suddenly ends.
Social media reacts to the ad
After the ad went viral, social media lit up with reactions.
“@MissyElliott looks phenomenal in the preview of Doritos Super Bowl LVII commercial,” one fan tweeted, while another user commented: “Ok, now you gonna make me love #doritos even more now!!!!…. I think we need @MissyElliott flavor and it should be called #drippingspice because she is spice and she stays dripping!!! Let’s make this happen.”
A Missy Dorito flavor is long overdue! As for that cliffhanger in the ad, we’re excited to see what Missy and Jack Harlow have up their sleeve. Could they be dropping a new song together during the Super Bowl? Only time will tell.
