Stacy Taffet, senior vice president of marketing at Frito-Lay:
"Bringing the Fritos brand back to television for the first time in two decades is a huge moment. Fritos is inherently recognized as a brand that has shown up for generation after generation, whether at mealtime occasions or as a snack."

"It's the chip down for any dip, meal, and any moment at our family gatherings or at our community events, and has a lasting tie to our roots. Fritos is a tradition. Those brand values are what make Fritos the stand-up chip that it is."
Thomas Rhett:
"It's really cool to be a part of Fritos brand's first commercial in 20 years. The Fritos brand has been such a staple in my house for as long as I can remember and is always around for some of my favorite things, like a college football tailgate with friends, or bonfires and chili nights with the family."

"Anyone who knows my music knows how nostalgic I am and how much I value the things in life that help create special memories, so the 'Down for Everything' campaign is such a fun and natural fit for me."
