ODU Grads Produce Video for Doritos 'Crash the Super Bowl' Contest
Two Old Dominion graduates have produced a video for the national Doritos "Crash the Super Bowl" commercial contest, which will air the top entries during the 2013 Super Bowl, with the winner receiving a $1 million prize.
Donald "Chip" Johnson, a 2003 fine arts graduate with a concentration in photography, and Allison Zedd, a 2004 graduate in interdisciplinary studies, are part of the team that made "Chip on Your Shoulder."
The video is a cheeky play on words on the familiar saying. In the spot, a man is frustrated leaving the house in the morning, and his wife points out, "You have a chip on your shoulder," and then takes an actual Dorito off his shoulder and eats it.
The video, plus other entries in the annual competition, are viewable at: https://apps.facebook.com/crashthesuperbowl/?page=watch&video=1658 . To see the entry submitted by Johnson and Zedd, hit the tab for the collection of contest entries and search the word "shoulder."
The winning commercial in the Doritos "Crash the Super Bowl" contest will be announced during the game, Feb. 3, 2013, in New Orleans.
