Crash the Super Bowl

Doritos and Pepsi issued a challenge. For a grand prize of $1,000,000, come up with a thirty second commercial.

To which, my buddies and I said "why the heck not"?

Sock Zombie Doritos Ad is Crashing the Super Bowl!

(you'll have to click through their intro page, but have patience! You'll get there!)

The concept for the commercial came from the genius brain of Joe Purcell (a.k.a. the guy behind The Fall of Paul). The Sock Zombie was created by Erin Glaser (and if you want a cuddly, undead friend of your very own, check out her website http://sockzombie.com/. Actually, you should just check out her website just because. It's pretty genius.) And joining us as puppeteers was the fantastically talented team of April Warren and Erik Kuska, who were ready and willing to leap into probably the most uncomfortable puppet set ever constructed in the history of man and make some magic.

And magic, they did make.
