The Doritos ad featuring two men bonding over a bag of chips in a sauna may not have made the cut to air during the Super Bowl, but its star is getting some major attention for the spot online.
George King talks to NoMoreDownLow.tv cohost Kendall Hogan about the controversy the ad has stirred up on gay blogs, coming out of the closet at 19, and why he still thinks the commercial is hilarious.
"We have to be able to laugh and have a good time," he says. "I thought the commercial was hilarious. I know a lot of people who thought the commercial was hilarious. And those people who are sitting back and finding anything else, I don't get it."
Since first appearing online two weeks ago, the Doritos ad has logged more than 1 million views on You Tube.
