Just a few weeks ago, Doritos recently announced their newest special promotion in the Philippines with Sony’s partnership. The promotion will allow Filipino gamers to get a chance to bring home a brand-new PlayStation 5 (PS5) when they purchase a bag of Doritos.
A single bag of Doritos contains a scratchable coupon code that they could use to redeem it on Doritos’ official website. When lucky, 10 winners will able to get PS5 units. And over 2000 winners will able to get random PlayStation games and other devices.
Amidst the PS5 stock shortage, an unknown culprit desperately ripped off the scratchable sticker on one of the Doritos bags displayed in a supermarket.
A picture uploaded by RK Bautista in the PlayStation Philippine Facebook group shows a rip-off sticker of an Doritos bag inside a super market. The incident happened in SM City Bacoor, Cavite. “mga sir wag naman ganyan! hahahaha. kung nasa group man gumawa nito grabe ka“ (Sir, don’t be like that! Hahahaha. if you’re in this group, you’re too much), RK Bautista write in a post.
Members in the group also reacted, “Sana hindi masarap yung pagkain yung nag sira niyan pramis” (I hope he didn’t enjoy the food and it taste bad), Precil Canoy write in the comment. “Dapat ung code nilagay sa loob” (The code should be placed inside the bag), Adrian Sy added.
In unexpected twist, the culprit didn’t know that even being able to get the winning code, an actual picture of Doritos bag and the coupon code is needed to claim the prize as part of the verification process.
A large bag of Doritos is cost around 150 PHP in the Philippines; it includes one scratchable code that could contain a winning code of the following prizes:
- 10 PlayStation 5 Console
- 24 PlayStation 4 Console
- 24 DualSense wireless controller
