“Cheetos is such an iconic and beloved brand that has gained even more popularity in the last decade, so we saw the Super Bowl as the only fitting place to debut our biggest product launch in a decade with Cheetos Popcorn,” said Rachel Ferdinando, svp and chief marketing officer of Frito-Lay North America, in a statement. “And of course, joining our mischievous brand identity in a playful way with MC Hammer was a perfect fit. It’s two icons coming together—Cheetos and Hammertime—in a relatable story about the Cheetle that sticks to everyone’s fingers when eating Cheetos.”
