Mexican wrestler and Thai kick boxer face-off in Doritos battle of the flavours

A Mexican wrestler and a Thai kick boxer fight it out to represent a battle of flavours between Doritos’ two new launches, Hot Mexican Salsa and Thai Sweet Chilli. The campaign was created by Clemenger BBDO Sydney.

In another execution, Thai Phoon, the Muay Thai boxer, conquers El Macho, the Mexican luchador wrestler.

A consumer promotion, running for eight weeks, will enable people to vote for their favourite flavour at Participants stand to win from a pool of $65,000 in prize money.

Via the website, consumers can suggest battle moves for El Macho or Thai Phoon, and the winning moves will be filmed and added to the website.
