The Super Bowl is coming up on February 5. That means companies planning to advertise during the big game still have plenty of time to put the finishing touches on those exorbitantly priced commercials. Or they could just skip it — that’s what Frito-Lay says it’s doing. The maker of Doritos, Cheetos and other perennial game-time snacks said no commercials this year after a decade. The chip maker’s not the only company sitting this one out. Toyota won’t advertise during the Super Bowl either. Why have these companies decided to pull out? 

If you’re a member of your local public radio station, we thank you — because your support helps those stations keep programs like Marketplace on the air.  But for Marketplace to continue to grow, we need additional investment from those who care most about what we do: superfans like you.

Your donation — as little as $5 — helps us create more content that matters to you and your community, and to reach more people where they are – whether that’s radio, podcasts or online.

When you contribute directly to Marketplace, you become a partner in that mission: someone who understands that when we all get smarter, everybody wins.
