Frito Bandito, Corn Chips, The 70's, Commercials and Corn Chips

Remember the Frito Bandito commercial? Don't lie fatty. You know the one for Frito's corn chips? Below you'll find the commercial from the 70's.

What made me think about this was the Frito Bandito eraser that that they used to give away with the Frito's corn chips. It just popped into my head the other day. I used to love that thing. It sucked for erasing but for having a Mexican on the end of your pencil it was #1.

And for the record, the BBQ Frito's are much better than the original flavor.

But, yes, Fritos are mm-mm-good.

ha ha ha Brandi couldn't get those BBQ Fritos where she lived for a while so every time she visited, she'd take a few bags back with her.

Try these, you'll love them, but your heart will hate them!

And then the hat would get all dirty!!! But I loved it anyway.

I carried out my end of our little bargain. I'll do it again tomorrow. Please do the same for me. Thanks pal.

The BBQ are the best food ever invented. I stay far away from them. They are EVIL!! They call my name in the grocery store and when I give in, they won't let me have a handful. NOOOOO. They make me eat the whole freaking bag!!

They're tagline should be:
BBQ Fritos - Buy a bag or two today, they're more addicting than crack!

I think the Frito Bandito and Speedy Gonzalez got put into the same P.C. jail cell.

I think Speedy would be the pitcher.

Vic said...

I agree - the world is too PC for my little Frito Bandito friend (I loved that guy!!)

So, for the prison team--- I was thinking for the outfield, all those "ethnic" characters from the melting pot episode of School House Rock?

You know the only place you can see Speedy Gonzales, and his cousin Slowpoke Rodriguez, (don't mess with Slowpoke, he carry a gun)is in Mexico....white people love being offended on behalf of other people...andale andale, arriba!!!

School was way too tramatic for me to remember any cool erasers, sniff. And we were only allowed to have Fritos on holidays,excuse me while I wipe my nose. We snacked on unsalted crackers, and drank luke-warm water.

Fritos make me wanna hurl. Cheetos all the way baby...sorry

Belle said...

Finally. Something I can relate to. They make Fritos over here as well. They are great, but we had a monster-truck ad to go with them. Monster-truck - monster flavour. Get it?

*LAUGHING AT SCOPE!!*

SkylersDad said...

Great. Now that damn song is stuck in my head on a tape loop! Thanks a lot...

Gwen said...

Can't see the vid at work but my favorites are the chili cheese Fritos. YUM!

Swedish Chef said...

BBQ frito's are definitely full of some sort of addicting chemical. I'll buy that big ass bag, eat half, roll up the top and even but a chip clip or a rubber band on top, and put them in the cupboard...then walk away only to go running back within about 3 minutes. And then repeat this process about 4 times per bag. Also, they are much harder to find nowadays with this awful (AWFUL) twisty bbq wannabe frito's they have now.

Greta said...

This is only sort of related, but damn, why can't we get the toasted corn flavor of Doritos anymore? I haven't seen them since the 80s.

Dr Zibbs said...

I just found the funniest part of this post that's actually a mistake. I wrote corn chips twice in the post heading.

I'm good without even trying.

whatever happened to the ranch fritos?? seriously....

Queen Goob said...

What in the HELL made you think of the Frito Bandito? No really, what were you doing to think of it?

Bluez said...

The scoops are the best. They don't break off in the salsa jar.

Morgan the Muse said...

I think it is ironic that he uses the word offend.

dguzman said...

Of course I remember this commercial, Fattie. What's more, I actually owned a little 45rpm of the song, and on the B-side was some weird song about traveling to the moon! I only remember one part: "Oooh, we'll see if the moon is made out of green cheese, Ha ha ha ha, ooh, we'll see what the moon we'll see what the moon is like!" and then there was a recissitive (or however you spell it, a talking part of a song) where these dorky people described what they were seeing.

Do you have any idea what I'm talking about?

Also had the eraser.
