America's favorite snack brands launch sweepstakes to give one fan the rare opportunity to play a direct role in the Super Bowl and ignite the celebration

PLANO, Texas, Jan. 23, 2024 /PRNewswire/ -- Attending the Super Bowl is a lifelong dream of many NFL fans. But Frito-Lay, a company dedicated to celebrating sports fandom, is taking that dream a step further and giving one fan a critical role in the official victory celebration. As a part of its Taste of Super Bowl campaign, Frito-Lay will give one lucky football fan a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to press the button that launches the NFL's official confetti for the winning team at Super Bowl LVIII.

"At Frito-Lay, our fans are at the center of everything we do – and we're always dreaming up new and exciting ways to heighten the game-watching experience during the biggest sports moments of the year," said Brett O'Brien, chief marketing officer, PepsiCo Foods North America. "The joy that comes with the Super Bowl confetti drop is truly unique. We loved bringing this feeling to life in our Taste of Super Bowl campaign and now will let one of our fans be the one to kick off the celebration at Super Bowl LVIII."

For the chance to be the official confetti button pusher, fans can simply purchase a specially marked Frito-Lay Taste of Super Bowl bags, now available in stores nationwide. The first 500 eligible fans to scan the QR code on their favorite specially marked Frito-Lay snacks beginning January 25 at 12:00 a.m. ET will win a special Taste of Super Bowl Confetti Kit and be entered for a chance to win a trip to Super Bowl LVIII in Las Vegas to meet Marshawn Lynch and press the official Super Bowl LVIII confetti button.

Frito-Lay's Taste of Super Bowl campaign features a new television commercial starring football legends Rob Gronkowski, Marshawn Lynch and Troy Polamalu as they rediscover the taste of victory – but this time with a chip-inspired twist. The former Super Bowl champions— with a combined seven Super Bowl victories between them – experience confetti bursting from bags of Lay's®, Cheetos® and Tostitos®. The crunch of the chip and subsequent pop of confetti transports them right back to the feeling of celebrating on football's biggest stage.

"Frito-Lay's NFL Playoff campaigns are always creative, next level and fun to be in, and I've had a dope time working with them all these years," said Lynch. "It's impressive how they actually make fans part of the experience, and now they are giving someone the chance to hit the confetti button at Super Bowl LVIII. I'm excited to get to Vegas, meet the winner, have some fun and make sure get they're ready for game day."

These football legends together combined with confetti popping led to hilarious antics – and even some pranks – during the filming of the commercial. Fans can get a look behind the scenes here.

Frito-Lay at the Super Bowl

In addition to the Taste of Super Bowl campaign, Frito-Lay is bringing even more to Las Vegas with an immersive fan experience at the Frito-Lay Chip Strip. Fans in Vegas will have the opportunity to take a seat in the hottest ride on the Strip, feel the love at the Cheetos Chapel, try their luck at the Frito-Lay Snackpot – and more. The Frito-Lay Chip Strip is located on the Brooklyn Bridge at New York, New York Hotel & Casino and is open daily from Thursday, February 8 through Sunday, February 11.

Doritos Dinamita, which will also be featured at the Frito-Lay Chip Strip, announced a fiery in-game commercial for Super Bowl LVIII and exploded onto snack shelves this month with new spice-packed flavors and an unexpected new shape.

As the Official Chip & Dip of the NFL, Tostitos is headed back to the Super Bowl with Tost by Tostitos. At the complimentary limited-time experience, Tostitos is inviting fans to go on a culinary journey and enjoy Tostitos chips and dip in a way they never have before. Tostitos' key ingredient— corn – is at the center of the recipes, taking Tostitos beyond the chip bag and transforming it into one-of-a-kind culinary creations.

In support of its ambitious pep+ (PepsiCo Positive) goals, Frito-Lay is reimagining packaging possibilities at the Chip Strip. Visitors will be able to experience the latest touchdown in its sustainability journey – all while enjoying their favorite Game Day snack products. Featuring an industrially compostable bag, this technology is a critical step forward in building a world where packaging never becomes waste.

Specially marked Taste of Super Bowl Frito-Lay products are now available at retailers nationwide. For more information about the campaign, the Frito-Lay Chip Strip and more, visit TikTok, Facebook, Instagram, X and YouTube.
