Great Dane From Doritos Super Bowl Ad Gets the Key to His City
They say that fame is fleeting, but it appears that Huff's 15 minutes isn't over yet. After the Great Dane starred in the most popular commercial of this year's Super Bowl, it looks like he's tempted to leave acting for… politics?
Huff's Super Bowl commercial, in which he employs a bag of Doritos to bribe his way out of getting punished for killing a cat, was one of 6,100 videos submitted for the "Crash the Super Bowl" contest run by Doritos; the contest allowed online voters to pick which fan-submitted commercials aired during the big game. And since USA Today's Super Bowl Ad Meter ranked Huff's ad as the top commercial of the night, Doritos awarded $1 million to the commercial's Virginia Beach creator.
Now a new video feature from WAVY-TV 10 captures Virginia Beach Mayor Will Sessoms slipping a red ribbon — dangling a key to the city — around Huff's neck.
"You made Virginia Beach very, very proud," Sessoms beams. "Please wear it with pride. But Huff, please, please do not bury it."
One thing leads to another, and soon Huff is cruising around town in a stretch limo stamped with a "Huff for Mayor" sign. But after he finds out that the mayor isn't paid in dog bones, he does the unthinkable. We hope he's got some extra Doritos stored up to get himself out of this bind.
Check out the clip below, and let us know if you'd vote for Huff for mayor. To see his Super Bowl commercial, check out our roundup of the best canine-starring ads from the big game.
