Doritos Commercial - Tennis Balls Are Chips
Watch the commercial of the guy in the tennis court. Here are 3 mistakes:
1. The girl with the Doritos is at the court next to the guy, then she puts all of the Doritos in the ball shooter next to her. Then goes to the gut. The girl is on a different court when she dumps the chips in.
2. When the girl is going to catch the chip in her mouth, you see it about 2 inches above the net, then it hits her forehead. She must of become shorter, or the chip magically moved up.
3. When the girl puts the chips in the shooter, the tennis balls are still shooting, then it magically shoots out Doritos.

Scurvy, those commercials with people flinging chips and catching them are Doritos commercials.

I believe the whole purpose of the commercial is to poke fun at nacho commercials where the main characters are flinging chips around at supersonic speeds and catching them in their mouths. Being a satire, it is allowed to use a little artistic license to point out the obvious inaccuracies in the other commercials. I also believe that the girl was knocked over because of the main selling point of the "new" chips is that they have more cheese, and are therefore supposedly heavier.

I agree that is the lamest commercial to pass muster at Frito-Lay in half a century. Whether the ball machine is the pneumatic or mechanical-wheel type, it certainly couldn't provide a push to both tennis balls and bloated chips without a parts change. To give a chip the kind of energy it would need to travel past the net (let alone knock the bimbo out) the machine would either pulverize the chip from the impulse, or it would need to accelerate the chip gradually over the course of like 30 seconds (one could do the math with the density and structural constants of such chips; the proof is left as an exercise for the student).

You're kidding right? Way to kill both the point of the commercial and the slip up!

Yes, and maybe they saw that they were not getting the response that they wanted. They tried to catch the buyer's attention with sex appeal and humor, rather than a chip that bounced off a bunch of doors of washing machines/dryers.
