Super ad contest: $1 million worth of laughs

With a chance for millions of people to see their work, and a million-dollar prize at stake, 10 filmmakers are hoping fans select their ad to win Doritos’ “Crash the Super Bowl Contest”.  Each year, the contest receives thousands of submissions. Online votes narrowed the field to 10. The finalists are all invited to the Super Bowl, but only two of the 30-second ads will appear on TV during the game.  The maker of the fan favorite wins the million-dollar prize and a job at a film studio in Hollywood.

"Big Fat" reality show with a message

When Whitney Thore posted videos of herself called "A Fat Girl Dancing" on Youtube last spring, she had no idea she would end up starring in a reality TV show. The videos went viral, and last March she talked to Weekend Express about her "No Body Shame" campaign. Whitney even taught Lynn Berry a few dance moves on our set.
