The Dandy Dwarves teamed up with fellow SCAD alumni, director Mike Goubeaux, to create a 30 second Doritos commercial that has placed in the top 5 of the Doritos "Crash the Super Bowl" contest. Voting took place during January and now Josh, Mike, and Andrew anxiously await the results in Tampa. They will be alongside the other finalists in a skybox at the Super Bowl tomorrow as they wait to see whose commercials air. Doritos has purchased two thirty second time slots in the first quarter for both the winning commercial and the runner up! In the event that one of those commercials ranks number one on USA Today's Ad Meter, Doritos will award the commercial's creator(s) a million dollar bonus!! It's exciting to think about this possibility - however far reaching it may be - but the true reward for these guys who are trying to make a name for themselves and break into the Advertisting world is, of course, for their commercial to air during the most coveted time slot - the Super Bowl. They've already achieved their goal of being chosen by the Doritos judges as one of the five finalists. However, it would be pretty amazing to see their commercial air during the big game! So keep your eyes peeled for their "Too Delicious" spot with the Doritos tree. You can watch it here: toodelicious.tv
Good luck boys!
