It may look like a music video for “Who’s That Chick?”, but Rihanna’s new video is what’s known as an augmented reality music experience where online viewers can choose between Rihanna’s bright and colorful light side or her sexy and sassy dark side. So how is Doritos making it happen? The only way to experience Rihanna and David Guetta’s “Who’s That Chick?” track and videos is through DoritosLateNight.com beginning on Oct. 19.

Doritos today unveiled its highly anticipated collaboration with multi-award winning artist Rihanna. Through an augmented reality music experience that showcases the multiple facets of Rihanna’s personality and style, Doritos is debuting the special single, “Who’s That Chick?,” by David Guetta featuring Rihanna. To create a truly global scope, the experience also includes exclusive performances by a collection of additional recording artists from around the world.  This one-of-a-kind interactive performance is offered at www.doritoslatenight.com and the augmented reality content can be accessed with special-edition Doritos Late Night bags.

In early September, a small portion of the Doritos Late Night “Who’s That Chick?” experience was unexpectedly released online, setting off a wide range of speculation among music fans and pop culture commentators.  What was rumored to be anything ranging from a product placement deal to television commercials featuring a new Rihanna song, actually stands as a one-of-a-kind, interactive music experience that the Doritos brand created especially for worldwide fans of Rihanna’s music.


While Rihanna serves as the Doritos Late Night headliner, this exclusive offering features artists including Canada’s Down with Webster, the UK’s Professor Green, Turkey’s Mor Ve Otesi, Brazil’s Sensacional Orchestra Sonora and South Africa’s Teargas. Each band, highly recognized in the music scenes of their respective markets, will use the Doritos Late Night platform to reach and interact with fans in a whole new way.

“We’ve made a conscious effort with Doritos to focus our marketing around breakthrough interaction and collaboration with our fans, and our partnership with Rihanna is a perfect example of providing a truly unique experience around an artist they are passionate about,” said Rudy Wilson, vice president, marketing, Frito-Lay North America. “She is an artist known for pushing the boundaries in order to provide her fans with the best when it comes to entertainment, and our fusion of music and technology fits perfectly with what she is about and what her fans have come to expect.”

Designed to put control of the experience in consumers’ hands, the Rihanna augmented reality performance is available in both day and night settings.  Fans are able to unleash Rihanna’s late-night side by pointing a graphic symbol located on the back of Doritos Late Night special-edition bags at a web cam.  Fans can personalize Rihanna’s performance by the way they hold and move the bag, offering up a new experience each and every time. Customization is available to viewers of the regional artists as well by putting them in control of a 360-degree viewing environment that they can use to create their own personalized music experience.

International superstar, Rihanna is known for her incredible style and chart topping hits.  The multiple Grammy-winning artist’s work on “Who’s That Chick?,” will be released on David Guetta’s upcoming album, ONE MORE LOVE, on Nov. 29, and she is featured on bags of Doritos Late Night for a limited time.

“I’m really excited about ‘Who’s That Chick?’ and wanted to find a fresh and unique way to share it with my fans,” said Rihanna. “When I saw how cool the augmented reality performance Doritos created was, I knew this was it. This was the way I wanted to make ‘Who’s That Chick?’ available to the world, and I can’t wait to see how my fans get engaged in this innovative experience.”
