Unexpectedly Intriguing!
May 26, 2017

Memorial Day weekend is upon us once again, and like many Americans, we'll take advantage of the long weekend to catch a movie at the local cineplex. The leading contender for the box office dollars of the Inventions in Everything staff this weekend is Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol. 2, which promises to provide a proper summer movie experience.

Coincidentally, the marketing and licensing minds behind the movie have also provided the invention that we'll focus upon this week: the "Doritos Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 Soundtrack - Doritos Music Bag + Headphones".

No, we're not making this up! In fact, when the movie opened several weeks ago, you could actually buy this invention today from Amazon, although today, you might have better luck picking it up on eBay, since Amazon itself sold out some time ago (although a number of other sellers offer it through Amazon's site).

Amazon: Doritos Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 Soundtrack - Doritos Music Bag + Headphones

Oh, but wait - there's more! Here's Amazon's description of the product:

About the product

  • What’s bolder than crunching on Doritos? Crunching on Doritos while rockin’ out to an awesome mix of songs from Marvel Studios’ Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 soundtrack — straight from one epic bag inspired by the tape deck in the Milano.
  • Plug your headphones into the bag, press play, and enjoy the Doritos packaged inside!
  • Rock out with the bag, and share it with #DoritosRockOutLoud
  • The limited edition Doritos bag includes: one (1) custom, built-in, fully rechargeable MP3 player loaded with songs from Marvel Studios’ Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.2 soundtrack, one (1) separately packaged Doritos Nacho Cheese Flavored 3.125 oz. Tortilla chips, one (1) USB charging cable, one (1) pair of retro-style headphones

If you want to find out more about how it works, the guys at Engadget tore down a bag to see what was on the inside (HT: Kottke):
