doritos crash promotion
| February 27, 2015

Doritos

Two unemployed brothers walked away with a $1 million prize for creating the best-liked commercial during the Super Bowl, thanks to a consumer-generated contest hosted by Doritos® maker Frito-Lay. Doritos® turned to SCA to fix their promotion budget and secure promotional risk coverage on the $1 million prize.

Objectives:

  • Generate excitement surrounding the Doritos brand.
  • Maximize the number of people watching the commercials during the Super Bowl.

Strategies:

  • Launch a nationwide contest asking people to shoot their own Doritos commercial.
  • Post the five best commercials online and ask consumers to vote on their favorite.
  • Air the top two commercials, based upon the consumer vote, during the Super Bowl.
  • Award $1 million if one of the commercials ranks first in USA Today’s Ad Meter.

Results:

  • One of the Doritos commercials, “Free Doritos,” ranked first and earned its creators $1 million.
  • SCA paid the $1 million prize to Doritos within two days.
