Answer:

Doritos “out of this world” ad was the first to be broadcast into space. I suspect some ET civilization will receive this and assume we’ve declared war on them.

    Apparently unconvinced that the whole of Planet Earth is a large enough customer base, Doritos is teaming up with astronomers to broadcast their advertising into space.

    The advertisement will be targeted at part of the Ursa Major constellation, a zone astronomers believe contain the conditions for life. Doritos obviously thinks the predicted inhabitants of Ursa Major are “extreme” enough to handle colored flavor dusted tortilla chips and will not blow us up for bombarding their planets with unwanted advertising for a product that doesn’t exist there.

    The advertisement will be broadcast from the EISCAT Space Centre in Svalbard, Norway, near the site of the “doomsday” Global Seed Vault. Using a 500MHz Ultra High Frequency Radar, the space centre will send a 30 second ad, chosen during a contest, 42 light years away to the zone known as Ursa Major, or The Great Bear of Plough. There is a star there called 47 UMa that has orbiting planets which could possibly harbor life.

    Somewhere in England, some crackhead thought it would be a good idea to make contact with aliens by showing them our Doritos ads. So they did.

    The winning space-ad entitled ‘Tribe’

    ScienceDaily (June 12, 2008) — Today Doritos makes history, taking the UK’s first step in communicating with aliens as they broadcast the first ever advert directed towards potential extra terrestrial life. The University of Leicester has played a key part in the success of the project…..
    The transmission is being undertaken as part of the Doritos Broadcast Project, which invited the UK public to create a 30 second video clip that could be beamed out to the universe offering a snap shot of life on earth to anyone ‘out there’. Some 61% of the UK public believe this is just the start of communication with ET life and that we will enter into regular communication with an alien species at some stage in the future.

    The winning space-ad entitled ‘Tribe’ was voted for by the British public and directed by 25-year-old Matt Bowron. It will officially be entered into the Guinness Book of Records and will be aired on the more conventional medium of television on Sunday 15th June on ITV at 7.44pm in the ad break of the final Group B game of Euro 2008.

    First ad directed towards potential extra terrestrial life.
    The signal was directed at a solar system in the ‘Ursa Major’ constellation in June 2008. It features a tribe of Doritos escaping from the pack and sacrificing one of their own to the God of Salsa, as soon as there are no humans around.
