Doritos Contest Top 5!

Hey guys,

My friends and I shot a 30 second spot for a Super Bowl contest sponsored by Doritos and learned that we were selected into the Top 5 submissions!

We shot is using the JVC HD100 with the Letus HD100 (great adapter, thanks Quyen!).

The next phase is up to a vote by the public and will determine which of the 5 will be aired during Super Bowl XLI. Any and all support would be greatly greatly appreciated.

Check it out at www.crashthesuperbowl.com

Our spot is "Live the Flavor" - Help us if you can (if you like ours the best, that is :)

Thanks a lot guys!

Dale

Dale,
In all fairness I had to watch all of the videos to make sure I voted for the best one. You got my vote. It was brilliant. Great work.

What is a "Viewing Party?"

Do you at least get to attend the game, or are they just going to let you watch it on TV?

I was on a game show once

A show called "Press Your Luck." I lost, got 3 whammies in my first 4 spins, if you're familiar with the show. Anyway, one of the consilation prizes was about a year's supply of Doritos.

Good luck.

The party is in Miami. Not sure really what it involves, but i do know it involves a good deal of media and press... I'd rather watch the game in the comfort of a room anyway!

Smart move by Free-to-Lay

Others advertiisers are paying big bucks for creative and commercial production. Frito-Lay is getting thiers for a song. Plus all the PR from the contest.

It's a double-edged sword, yes, but the rewards can be helpful if the top 5 and or winner plays their cards right.

Absolutely

Prospective Client: What's your credentials?

Scott: I wrote and produced Frito-Lay's Superbowl commercial.

Prospective Client: You're hired!

Haha, that's the hope! We've seen an impressive amount of PR from this already, and it really has only begun - it's been quite a ride...
