New Doritos Ad Based On True Events Features A Single Dad Trying To Express His Support For His Gay Son And It Has People Tearing Up


“I am an old fart who is rather on the wrong side of 40 so I’m not overly well-versed in the art of efficient internetting,” wrote an anonymous dad 9 months ago in what became probably one of the most beautiful posts submitted on the subreddit “Relationship advice.”


After his only son came home with a friend to spend quarantine together, dad was seeking advice: “How do I let them know it’s okay?” The heartwarming post has since gone viral and you can read it in full in Bored Panda’s article right here.


Fast forward to Christmas holidays and Doritos Mexico released the 2-minute commercial “El mejor regalo,” which translates to “the best gift.” The beautiful clip is based on the same heartwarming story written by the same dad wondering how to show his support to his gay son.


It has amassed almost 14.5 million views on Doritos’ YouTube channel and touched way too many hearts to count, making everyone tear up on the way. Tune in for the beautiful story below, which shows that the best gift, after all, is accepting everyone just the way they are.
