Well this is it, the final Doritos Crash the Super Bowl contest. It’s been great fun and I’ve entered just about every year. Last year I placed in the semi-finals with a fun spot I produced with a few friends called “Girl Voice“.

This year I teamed up with Andrew Marbach who is normally posting hilarious 6 second videos on Vine. Here we find him wondering if a simple birthday wish will finally come true.

I’m really excited to announce that my submission this year for the Doritos Crash the Super Bowl ad contest has been chosen as a semi-finalist. It stars the talented Matt Bittner who does a hilarious “girl voice”. Have a look at the spot I co-created with Ryan Clark and then check out the clip of Matt below doing an impromptu voice.
