Reserve Los Angeles County Sheriff's Deputy Scott Zabielski has a chance to win $1 million in this year's "Crash the Super Bowl" Doritos commercial contest.
Zabielski's 30-second spot for Doritos called “Middle Seat,” now has a shot at Super Bowl XLIX airtime. It’s one of 10 finalists in the snack brand’s annual competition.
Two ads will be chosen for airing during the big game. One will be selected by the public and the other by the Doritos brand team.
The grand-prize winner this year will receive a one-year job at Universal Pictures in addition to the prize money.
Zabielski also hopes his spot will help him break into commercial and feature film directing gigs. Though he’s worked his way up over the past 15 years from a lowly production assistant to directing episodes of the popular cable show “Tosh.0,” he said he wants to show he’s “not just a one-trick pony.”
The finalists won’t know if they’ve won until the ads air during the game, but Zabielski is campaigning for votes at www.crashthesuperbowl.com, where all 10 ads can be viewed through Jan. 28, the Burbank Leader reports.
