Super Bowl 2015 is scheduled for Sunday, February 1, 2015 and Doritos is once again looking for the best 30-second commercial that will air during Super Bowl XLIX. Not only will the grand prize winner of the Doritos Crash the Super Bowl contest walk away with $1 million for creating the winning ad, they will also be invited to work on a “creative project” with Universal Pictures.
If that’s not enough incentive to create a funny Doritos commercial, perhaps tickets to the Super Bowl will prompt you to enter. The grand prize winner and all finalists will get an all-expense paid trip to watch the Super Bowl at the University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale, Arizona
Last year, Ryan Thomas Anderson of Scottsdale, Arizona lined his pockets with $1 million after his commercial, Time Machine, was picked as the winner of the annual ad contest. ABC News reports that Anderson, a single dad, spent less than $300 to create the funny commercial (video above) that featured his son and their dog.
If you could use $1 million and have a great idea for a Super Bowl commercial, you’d better work fast. All entries into the Doritos Crash the Super Bowl contest must be submitted by November 9, 2014. Show how much you love Doritos (and cold, hard cash) by uploading a 30 second video to Doritos YouTube account. Complete rules and video guidelines are outlined on the entry page.
According the contest’s sponsor, Frito-Lay, Inc, ten finalists will be announced on January 5, 2015. Fans will then be asked to vote for their favorite ad online and determine the winning Doritos commercial.
The finalists and first place winners won’t win $1 million, but the runner-up prizes are nothing to complain about. Finalists will win $25,000 each and a trip to the Super Bowl. One first prize winner will also win a trip to the game, as well as $50,000.
Will the 2015 Doritos commercials be as funny as the ones that aired during previous Super Bowl games? Check out the gallery of video submissions that will soon be on the Doritos YouTube channel and see if you can predict the winner. Voting will begin on January 5, 2015.
