Music: Missy Elliott Collides with Doritos

Missy Elliott -- maybe she and Doritos should continue to just be friends

According to an unintentionally funny Billboard article, Doritos is launching their new Collisions chips with ads featuring Missy Elliott. Given Missy's publicized weight loss this is a bit like when Eric Clapton shilled for Michelob after his stint in rehab. Missy's management company has this to say: "It's so Missy. And the fact that the campaign takes place in a studio means that Missy remains in her element, which makes the whole thing authentic." And thank goodness for that, when I think Doritos, I think authentic. More to the point (and the funny), her spokesperson goes on to say that "...the Internet element provides us with a great back-end." Uh hello -- it's MISSY who is providing you with the great back end! And then finally, "We've already started exploring ways to further Missy's relationship with Doritos." I can almost hear Missy's personal trainer sigh. My message to Missy is, "Hold up! Wait a minute!"
