PLANO, Texas, Jan. 16, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- What if you had an invitation of the same caliber as a Super Bowl ad to invite friends to your Super Bowl party, complete with puppies, a talking baby, nostalgia-inducing celeb and more? That's just what Tostitos®, the Official Chip and Dip of the NFL, is offering — a personalized ad for every person throwing a Super Bowl party. Why? Because nearly 50 percent of people who watch the game are either hosting or attending a party, and of course Tostitos chips and dips — a staple of any Super Bowl party — believes in getting people together.
Launching today at Tostitos.com, "Super Bowl Ads for All" is a digital ad invite creator that composes a completely unique and personalized Super Bowl party invitation, a video featuring themes that have made Super Bowl ads so iconic over the years. None other than Alfonso Ribeiro — '90s icon and current host of "America's Funniest Home Videos" on ABC — will be featured in unique ways in every single invite created.
"I love everything about the Super Bowl…especially the ads and the celebrity cameos. So it was a no-brainer to partner with Tostitos on their Super Bowl campaign that highlights what we all love most about Super Bowl ads," said Ribeiro. "Hopefully I can do my part to get as many people together for their Super Bowl parties as possible!"
By entering three key details — the host's name, location and party start time — hosts can create the ultimate Super Bowl party invite for their friends from a collection of the most popular ad themes. The ad is then generated with Ribeiro acting as the emcee of the video. With hundreds of different combinations, every host is bound to create a custom ad worthy of its own Super Bowl commercial.
"Tostitos has always been about getting people together for the Super Bowl," said Pat O'Toole, senior director of marketing, Frito-Lay North America. "The Super Bowl is about so much more than the game itself. People love watching the ads, so this year we wanted to give people the opportunity to create personalized ads for their Super Bowl parties."
The Party in Minneapolis
For fans in Minneapolis during the week leading up to the game, Tostitos will have a Cantina-style experience at Super Bowl Live complete with technology to create their own Super Bowl party invite — perhaps serving as a last-minute reminder for their friends. Ribeiro himself will be making an appearance to help people sign up and meet & greet with fans.
Tostitos is also offering buy-one, get-one-free Tostitos dip coupons to hosts who create videos as a bonus for participating. "Super Bowls Ads for All" is live for party hosts to create their own invitations now at Tostitos.com.
