Doritos Knows That the Ball Shot Is Still Good for Laugh

I'll admit, I laughed out loud at Doritos' Super Bowl commercial. What's more amazing, though, is that the Post's Tom Shales, whose funny bone stopped being amused some time after Newhart died, laughed, too. Writes Shales this morning about the ball shot: "Unfortunately when he heaved the object, it landed squarely on his boss's crotch (that old reliable laugh-getter seen so often on 'America's Funniest Home Videos'). It may be a cheap joke, but in this case it delivered the goods."
