The Doritos Super Bowl commercial everyone is talking about hit all kinds of nerves on social media.
The ad depicted an expectant father munching the snack while his wife was getting an ultrasound. The baby (not a lump of cells) lunged toward the snack with each bite.
It ended with the baby lunging for a chip as the mother goes through premature childbirth.
Here’s the ad.
Strong feelings about the ad led to a steady stream of social media frenzy — some thought it disgusting and were appalled, while others thought it uproariously funny.
Here are a few examples.
@mindykaling It made my lady parts cringe.

CNN’s Carol Costello had a question about the commercial:
So about the #SuperBowl commercials…the @Doritos ultrasound one was disturbing. What the hell happened to the fetus?
— Carol Costello (@CarolCNN) February 8, 2016
Fetus? Really? Others disagreed.
@CarolCNN @Doritos… Uhmmm…. It was born?
