As of this writing, the video titled “El mejor regalo (the best gift)” released by Doritos Mexico has over 14.2 million views.

Based on a true story, the ad opens with the son talking to his father that he will bring his “friend Manuel from the university” over their house during the holidays.

Further, the video went on as the father narrates his Reddit post. In his post, he seeks advice from users on how to let his queer son know that he is loved and accepted. 

“I am a 52-year-old divorced father and I need help. My son and his friend are a couple and they do not dare to tell me,” he narrated.

In an article, the Doritos ad was said to be part of Doritos Mexico’s #OrgulloTodoElAño (#PrideAllYear). It is also a campaign aiming to highlight stories from and support the LGBTQ+ community all year long.
