I've long believed chips make the greatest friends. Case-in-Point: Tostitos has released a new chip bag that wants to save you from your own bad decisions. Even my real friends don't always do that!

Frito-Lay's Tostitos partnered up with Uber and Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) to create a "Party Safe" bag that is equipped with sensors to detect traces of alcohol on your breath, USA Today reports. If the bag senses your breath is too boozy to drive, it blinks with a red "don't drink and drive" message:

And if it senses you're sober enough to drive, it blinks green.

And there's a twist: if you're drunk and it flashes red, you get a $10 Uber discount code. Then, if you touch your phone to the bag, it CALLS AN UBER FOR YOU, Adweek reports.

But if you're sober, sorry, you have to pay for your own Uber. Sucker!

The new Tostitos bag are being offered for a limited time only as part of a plan to keep drunks off the road on Super Bowl Sunday. Because apparently the only thing that can keep drunk sports fans from driving is a bag of chips telling them not to.

A few people have pointed out on Twitter that this is maybe not the BEST idea:

And this guy has a bone to pick with Tostitos, and chips in general:

Great points all around. But I stand by my original point: chips are the best and they care about you more than your friends do.
