Doritos and Mix Tapes Together in (Confounding?) Bliss

Doritos and mix tapes may sound like the name of an angst-ridden garage band album, but it also describes a new marketing campaign between Frito-Lay and Marvel. Starting this Friday, in anticipation of the Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol. 2 blockbuster coming out next Friday, you can purchase your Doritos bag outfitted with the movie’s soundtrack in its entirety. Yes, your cheesy junk food vessel will come equipped with cassette-player-like controls, a headphone jack, and the ability to recharge to keep you plugged-in to the Awesome Mix Vol. 2 for many spins around the tape reel. The album’s tracklist was announced last week and includes Fleetwood Mac, Electric Light Orchestra, Cat Stevens, and Sam Cooke.
