2 Sets of Penn Alumni Vie For A Superbowl Commercial Spot + 1 Million Dollars!

upennAs far as I know, there are currently 2 sets of Penn alumni who have entered their commercials into the Doritos “Crash the Superbowl” Competition.

If their commercials make it to the top 6 (to be selected by Doritos), America will then vote to determine the top 3 finalist entries that will appear during Superbowl XLIV.   The winner (the ad which ranks #1 on the USA admeter) takes home 1 million dollars!  (check out another alum whose commercial was on during the 2008 Superbowl HERE)

Check out the commercials after the jump…


1) Last I wrote about writers Scott Ganz (C’01) and Andrew Samson (C’01), their Muppet TV special was about to air.  Now news of “Status Update”, their Doritos submission below…

Per Scott, “Our ad started from the simple idea of people making pointless status updates on sites like Twitter and Facebook. However, the joke is that, unlike in real life, everybody cares. Our nefarious plan is to have it air during the Super Bowl and have everybody updating their status as “BLANK just ate a Dorito.”




2) Comedian and Writer, Matt Rittberg (L’05) appears in this commercial below entitled “Opposite Reaction”: Does Newton’s third law, “For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction” hold true for Doritos?
