They will know us by our trail of Doritos

Remember when we mentioned that Doritos was planning to broadcast a commercial created by an ordinary British consumer into outer space? Well, apparently they did it on Friday. According to reports, the ad, directed by 25-year-old Matt Bowron, was “being pulsed over a 6-hour period from the radars of the EISCAT European space station in the Arctic Circle.” That’s the ad above, and it pretty much tells whatever intelligent life exists among the stars that Earth is a cartoonish pit of crass commercialism and barbaric ritual sacrifice. Nail on the head, really.
