Fellow RS member's ad could be in the Super Bowl, and needs your help!

*** Come find me at the Spring Meet Sunday March 22nd and get a limited print "Flying Pig" sticker, as a thanks for helping this ad make it to the Super Bowl! Hope to see you there!




WELL HOLY GODDAMN HELL! WE CAME 2ND AND AIRED ON MORE THAN 100 MILLION SCREENS IN NORTH AMERICA. THIS IS INSANE! THANK YOU SO MUCH REVSCENE FOR YOUR SUPPORT!!! YOU HELPED MAKE MY YEAR!!



Quick link to vote: Takes 5 seconds! Thanks!

Hello Revscene!

I'll try to keep this concise...but I need your support!

I'm an actor in Vancouver, and I'm hoping to keep doing what I love. Recently I was in a contest entry amateur-made ad for the Doritos "Crash the Super Bowl 2015" competition, a world-wide competition. And out of almost 5000 entries, we made top 25, and now we're officially in the top 10!

We actually have a good shot at winning the Grand Prize: seeing the ad during the Super Bowl, the producer gets a job at Universal...and we win $1 million!



Here's our spot, which beat out almost 5,000 entries! "When Pigs Fly" I'm the actor who plays the farmer! At the time of this posting, it has over 67,000 views!


But in order to win, we need votes. You can see all the entries and vote over on

https://crashthesuperbowl.doritos.com/finalists#/6511

And click "Vote" under our video, "When Pigs Fly"!


You can vote once a day, per device, until voting closes on Jan 28th. No sign up or emailing lists, just click the site, and click "vote"... Takes 5 seconds!

So out of the 10 finalists, 2 were Canadian, and both are from Vancouver. The other entry is called "Selfish Sneezers". Which is still great! But there can be only one winner, so we need to beat it, and need votes for "When Pigs Fly".

If we win, I'd love to show my gratitude to Revscene somehow with my cut of the winnings...not sure how yet but I promise to figure something out!

To show you it's legit, and to show that it's kind of a big deal, here are some news clips:

We were on Global News:

Local filmmakers make ?Crash the Super Bowl? ad finals | Watch News Videos Online

And on CTV News:

B.C. men among finalists for Doritos Super Bowl ad contest | CTV Vancouver News

And on CBC:

http://www.cbc.ca/player/News/Arts%2...ID/2646203397/

And The Huffington Post:

Doritos Super Bowl Ad Contest: B.C. Filmmakers Make Top 10

And in the Vancouver Sun. The video here is older but the write-up is new:

http://www.vancouversun.com/entertai....html#Comments

And here is the Facebook page, so you can stay up to date:

https://www.facebook.com/pages/Vote4...23644641244424

The top 2 ads will be played during the Super Bowl, and the runner-up will play first, and that's how we'll know who won.

Fun fact: Graham, the creator, got a call from Elizabeth Banks to say he was in the Top 10, since the job at Universal will be on her next project!



So remember:

1. Go to doritos.com
2. Click VOTE under When Pigs Fly, once a day, per device
3. ????
4. Profit?

Thanks for your support!

Brendan

That's awesome! Congrats!

I saw the twins who created this on the news this morning.. liked them way more than the other guy who made the commercial with friends sneezing in their doritos bags so they didn't have to share. He was in a loud shirt and just kinda seemed like a d-bag on air.

When Pigs Fly gets my vote

Thanks friends! Appreciate the support!

Bear in mind, I know it's a stretch to expect people I've never met to vote every day...it would be awesome of course if you could remember to take 5 seconds!

If not, your one vote right now helps us out! Thanks!

Voted, but with the way CTV has been handling (read: butchering) the Super Bowl for the last 5 years, I doubt we'll even see your commercial without going to a bar for the American coverage, or if FritoLay Canada even bought time to slot in between the same commercials you see the rest of the year, and the countless trailers for crime drama's #44986 and #999778382.

Good luck though, man!

^Well, I have my driver's license, and I don't smell like shit...

...today.

Edit: Stylin, I had that issue too sometimes, for some reason. Sometimes I think it could be the traffic on the site, but you could (and should!) also vote on your phone or tablet. Or try a different browser on your computer; Chrome is weird for me sometimes, but Firefox is ok.

And yes, there are some great entries! But apparently a non-US has never won, so let's make this happen!

I watched all of them, and yours is legit the best one. Some of them were pretty bad, dunno how they got to the final 10. The production, music, acting, AND THE PIG were all top-notch for your ad. You have my vote! Goodluck and great work!

Thanks again!

Of course I would be biased, but I do think ours is one of the better ones...there were some really good semi-finalists that we were shocked didn't make the top 10.

And for those who have trouble voting, sorry for the hassle, but please try again tomorrow! Or on your phone or tablet!
