  • 0

SARASOTA - Companies pay big money to have their ads run during the Super Bowl, but young artists on the Suncoast hope they will get paid to have their ad on TV.

Through word of mouth, about a dozen young adults -- some Ringling College of Art & Design students -- came together to film a commercial for Doritos' "Crash the Super Bowl" contest.

They filmed their commercial at the First Baptist Church in Sarasota. They also used the church's equipment for filming.

The winners get a $1 million prize, as well as the opportunity to work on set of the next Avengers movie; not to mention have their commercial seen by about 100 million people.

“This builds a lot of experience for those people that actually want to start a career or get into Hollywood or some sort of movie in the future,” said Melvin Ruiz.

Submissions for the contest ended Sunday. Winners will be revealed on December 2nd.
