Kina Grannis "Message From Your Heart" for Doritos: Love It or Leave It?

Kina Grannis for Doritos: Love It or Leave It?

This year, the Doritos Crash the Super Bowl contest gave one musician the chance to have a single turned into a music video (and Doritos commercial) for Sunday's Super Bowl. The winner: Kina Grannis, a 22-year-old singer-songwriter from California, whose "Message From Your Heart" aired early in Sunday's game. The song is also now available from iTunes, and Doritos and Grannis also teamed to make a full music video for the song.

I was a little surprised that such a folky song would be the winner — wouldn't people watching the Super Bowl be ready to rock? Still, the snippet in the ad was sweet and catchy, if a little generic, and it scored Grannis a record deal with Interscope Records. What did you think of it? Check out the ad and then let me know if you liked Grannis and her Doritos tune.

She sounds just like Colbie Caillat, whom I don't like.

I like this song; it's rather cute and sweet. It's pretty cool that Kina is so young (graduated from college last year) and that she is making a name for herself now. She is actually a friend of a few people I know so it is nice to see that things are going well for her. I like that her voice is pure and that song in particular isn't muddied by tons of music in the back.

i liked it - but i wasn't wowed by the whole thing. there was such a great build up in the commercials that i thought it was going to be something big - and she's very 'michelle branch' which is fine - don't get me wrong but it was very anticlimactic

boring, bland, generic and hence why the music industry is a load of b.s.

When she first started singing, I really didn't think she had that great of a voice and the song was kind of generic. I didn't go see who the other contestants were so I don't know what kind of competition she had. I don't know. I think she'll be forgotten in a few months.

I went to the myspace page for the contest. I really think there were better people in the contest than the winner. Gina Cutillo and Metafore were my picks. I don't know who votes for these things but I think It should be quality of the music and lyrics and not who can get the most people to vote. It sort of isnt fair. Maybe Kina can go far but I am not a fan.

Gah it was horrible, I listened to it and my hand was twitching for the mute button, but I stuck through it, and thank goodness no part of it is remembered in my brain. I would off myself if it was "catchy" you know?

She reminds me of Michelle Branch. I liked it. The first song by a new signer is usually generic anyways

I think it was a good idea, but I didn't think that that song was very good.

I think it is awesome what Doritos did for her. And I think it's a cute song too.
