How much and how hard to get it?

A Doritos bag is all you need to play the 'Guardians 2' soundtrack
It gives new meaning to the phrase 'chip tunes.'

Doritos is teaming up with Marvel Studios to promote Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 in an unusual way. They've created a custom-designed, limited edition series of Doritos bags with a built-in, rechargeable cassette deck-inspired player that plays the movie's full soundtrack.

The 14-song album features '60s and '70s pop and rock songs from artists like Fleetwood Mac, George Harrison, Cheap Trick and David Hasselhoff. Yes, the Hoff. He's recorded an original song for the movie alongside a band call The Sneepers (the band's name is an obscure Marvel reference), and it's full of glorious disco cheese. Take a listen.

This isn't the first time chip maker Frito-Lay has used technology in its efforts to sell more snacks. During this year's Superbowl, it came out with a limited-edition Tostitos "Party Bag" equipped with a sensor that can detect alcohol on your breath. It also had an NFC chip that would hail you an Uber when you tapped your phone to it.

The Guardians bags will be available to buy on April 28th via Amazon while supplies last. There's no word yet on how much they will cost, but can you really put a price on the magnificent trifecta of nacho cheese, nostalgia and David Hasselhoff?

I don't know why but I find this annoying. Why is the cast and makers of this film so obsessed with the god damned.music, can't I just eat my Spicy Salsa flavour corn chips without Kat Stevens singing out of my cynical god forsaken foil wrapping. I don't think singing packaging is a good new trend. Next my condoms will be singing Yezeez Jesus Walks rap album.

Disappointed it is not a real cassette player, just a cheap MP3 player in a circuit board. :thumb-dn:

We destroyed a collectible Doritos bag to get at its hidden MP3 Player

This is probably the worst way to buy the 'Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2' soundtrack.

Junk food and summer blockbusters go hand in hand -- from the nachos, popcorn and candy you buy at the cinema, to action-hero faces plastered on every brand of potato chips at the supermarket. This has been the way of the world as long as I can remember, but this summer, the pairing may have reached its apex. In a perfect storm of brand synergy, nostalgia and guilty pleasures, Marvel has decided to release the soundtrack to 'Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2' in the most unconventional format imaginable: a bag of Nacho Cheese Doritos.

Like Frito-Lay's last "smart bag," the album-in-a-Doritos-bag gimmick is a bizarre, yet weirdly delightful marketing mess. The film's soundtrack isn't hidden in the bag as a CD or thumb drive, nor is it a redemption code for iTunes or Google Play -- the album is literally built into the Doritos bag as a faux-cassette player, complete with a headphone jack, buttons to play, rewind, fast-forward, change volume or stop and a mini-USB port to recharge. Again -- this is a bag of tortilla chips that you can recharge.

The moment new of this absurd product tie-in reached Engadget, our team had questions. Does it sound any good? Can you transfer the music to your phone? If you tear the bag apart, are you rewarded with a halfway decent media player? We resolved to track down a bag, destroy it, and find out.

You can tell at a glance that the 'Guardians of the Galaxy' Doritos aren't your typical bag of snack chips. For one, the bag itself comes in a display box decorated to look like a vintage stereo, with printed dials and a window peeking through to the bag's embedded media player. Inside the box are instructions (plug in headphones and turn it on, of course) and an extremely cheap headset reminiscent of 1990s "walkman style" stereo cans with a thin metal headband and flimsy, foam-covered speakers. While the headphones do look a lot like the pair Chris Pratt wore in the original Guardians movie, they put out decidedly low fidelity sound. Maybe it's an intentional nod to the MP3 player's facade: cassette tapes never sounded that great anyway.

Either way, the bag's music player doesn't need cheap headphones to be mediocre. The ports on ours were so misaligned that we actually couldn't get the headphones to plug in until we opened the bag and shuffled around the internals. When we finally got the audio port lined up, it worked well enough to fulfill its novelty -- but the music was a little distorted, even on good headphones. Fortunately, this is the fault of Doritos' cheap media player, not the music itself: plugging the bag's mini-USB charging cable into a PC will let you download the entire album as DRM-free MP3 files encoded at 320kbps.

The novelty of asking someone if they want to listen to music from a snack bag is worth a few laughs, but at $29.99, this is probably the worst way to buy the film's soundtrack. Getting the music files out of the bag is a bit of a chore, and tearing it apart to get at the electronics doesn't yield much of a reward -- the Doritos MP3 player is little more than a cheap, exposed circuit board sandwiched between two pieces of foam. Without the snack bag, its buttons are too tall and awkward, the audio port is exposed and flimsy and it has no visible user interface to speak of. It's not even worth pillaging for the player's microSD card, which holds a paltry 256MB of data. Looks like we destroyed the eBay value of this season's most ridiculous collector's item for nothing.

They could have 3D printed that bitch, god why did they go for a solid breadboard mounted on foil. That's Fkin Rtardd. You can 3D print electronics onto paper with electro conductive polymerized ink.

This is virus marketing, they selling Doritos with dried powdered Hollywood Walt Disney virus spores of doom. It is eye injection morphine advertisements in your eye caves.
