Doritos probably isn’t the first snack you’d think of when choosing something to chow down on mid-screening. After all, there’s a lot of sound involved in chomping those chips. However, when it comes to Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, it’s going to be hard to choose anything else. There’s going to be a limited edition bag of of the chip brand that does something special: it plays the entirety of Awesome Mix Vol. 2 – the soundtrack to the upcoming blockbuster.
Starting Friday, according to Billboard, Amazon.com will be selling the special bags that come equipped with headphone jacks, as well as the ability to recharge the player for multiple uses. While Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is has all kinds of other tie-in products like toys, clothes and clothing accessories… and pretty much anything else under the sun that you can think of, this has to be the most interesting, and possibly the most sought after item once it goes on sale. And we can’t blame anyone for scrambling to buy this weird thing.
As if Doritos themselves aren’t tasty on their own, the fact that you’ll own a copy of Awesome Mix Vol. 2 with purchase isn’t a bad deal. Reading over the track-listing, which includes classic songs from ELO, Sweet, and Glen Campbell, the chance to listen to some classic tunes the package is pretty valuable. Not to mention, even if you’re not a fan of Doritos, the chance to own a limited bag that plays the greatest hits of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 could lead to the procurement of a rare promotional item that any bigger fan would be happy to display in their collection.
Considering how most fans already have copies of Awesome Mix Vol.1, it’s almost a given to pick up a copy of the Guardians of the Galaxy follow-up soundtrack. So naturally, brands like Doritos are looking to get their hands on part of the galactic gold that no one could have predicted the James Gunn franchise would turn into. But while this item is definitely going to be an exciting one to look out for, it’s more than likely going to be in limited supply. So be sure to get onto Amazon as quick as you can, if you want to have any chance of grabbing one.
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 has already dropped its mix-tape and score for your listening pleasure, in non-Doritos form, with only the film left to be seen as it debuts on May 5th.
