As reported earlier the Doritos Super Bowl Commercial Pug Attack ranked number one on the 2011 USA Today Admeter along with the Bud Light Dog Sitter Commercial. This means that the creator of Pug Attack gets $1 million from Doritos.
PepsiCo says that Doritos and Pepsi MAX brands last night made Super Bowl advertising history when four consumer-created ads scored within the top-ten rankings of the USA TODAY Ad Meter. This marks only the second time in history that a consumer-created ad has topped the USA TODAY Ad Meter. In addition, consumer-created Doritos ad, "House Sitting" landed the third-highest Ad Meter score, winning its creator, Tynesha Williams, $400,000. The fourth-highest Ad Meter score went to consumer-created Pepsi MAX ad, "Love Hurts," created by Brad Bosley.
Aspiring filmmaker JR Burningham and his fiancee/business partner Tess Ortbals created "Pug Attack" with little time and money. The ad features a Doritos tortilla chip-obsessed pug whose master completely underestimates the dog's ability to get a taste of its favorite snack. Tynesha Williams' "House Sitting" features a desperate house-sitter seeking to undo his damage before his friend returns home. When he discovers the intense healing powers of Doritos tortilla chips, the house-sitter magically brings to life more than he bargained for.
"We knew our fans would bring exceptional talent to this year's contest, and we're thrilled to award $1.4 million to help JR and Tynesha set off to pursue their dreams," said Rudy Wilson, vice president, marketing, Frito-Lay. "We know this is just the beginning of so much more to come in their careers."
This year marked the fifth anniversary of Crash the Super Bowl and the first time Pepsi MAX partnered with Doritos for the contest. The program attracted a record-setting number of fan submissions and generated an unprecedented level of consumer votes.
