Am I the only one who thinks this is the stupidest commercial of all time?

And why are we seeing this commercial now in 2006, when the bad USA remake was released in 1998 and was a total flop at the box office?

I know I want to storm NYC crush building and people to get cheesy chips

I remember the Taco Bell commercials.

The worst/most irritating part of that commercial is when Godzilla is licking its fingers. Annoys the blue holy hell out of me.

I'm really not sure why Doritos would want the Godzilla everyone hates to be the face of their product. Why not use the Godzilla classic instead of imitation Godzilla?

Because Classic Godzilla has more dignity that.

Yes I just said that.

As one of the rare breed who actually liked the Broderick remake (sure, there were some less-than-stellar parts to the movie, but I certainly didn't find it to be the WORST. MOVIE. EVER.) I just can't seem to figure out why this commercial is airing nearly ten years after the movie was originally in theaters.

Did the Doritos people have this commerical in the can all these years and finally decided that NOW would be the best time to show it? Was it kept off the air so long for legal reasons (copyright issues and such)? I bet there are a bunch of people now who - upon seeing the commercial - don't even realize that it's supposed to be Godzilla.

Just weird, all around.

I guess they needed to do something with Zilla (The official name of the American Godzilla) as Godzilla squashed him in about 15 seconds in the new Godzilla movie from last year or so.
