The chips brand first announced the commercial partnership with Chance via social media on Wednesday, January 16, with a cheeky message. “Our prediction for the big game?

That ad earned more than 10 million views online before the night was over, and was the most shared ad on social media according to ad-analytics company, iSpotTV.
