Technology has grown by such a steady rate that major companies are ready to cash in on it with the consumers.  Pepsi and Doritos have sponsored a contest where people can create 30 second commercials showing their love for Doritos or Pepsi Max to be shown during the Super Bowl. The commercial must be turned in by November 17th.  The 10 commercials that are picked have a chance to receive up to 2 million dollars from the companies?  Why is this a good way to advertise for your company?  Is this a smart way to involve the customers with these brands?  Why or why not?  (Must be at least  5 COMPLETE sentences or you will get ZERO CREDIT)

    It it a good way to advertise because so many people watch the super bowl. With all the people watching the super bowl they probably watch the commercials to. Some people i know watch it just for its commercials because they are funny sometimes.

    well really it would depend on the people cause some people dont like doritos or pepsi. but yea it also could be at the same time because then if you are offering a large amount of money people will really push to make the commercials good like the one with all the people and the pepsi looks like it is going in to a different persons cup. that could be superbowl commercial material !

    I think it is because it gives people a chance to fulfill they dream. A lot of people want to be actors and they do this and they can become what they always wanted to do and get paid. Who don’t want to get paid for doing what your love?

    It;s good to advertise for your company because you can win lots of money. Also once you get the hang of doing this commercials you will get better and better at them. Plus a lot of people watch the super bowl same with their commercials. You could become famous. It could be a way to get people to eat those brands. If their willing to try them.

    I think this is a good way to advertise because it shows real people think the same way. Also, because it show that lots of real people like Doritos. I think it might be. The only reason why not would be because they would think they were just in it for the money. But t hat is my only concern.

    I think it is a good way to advertise these companys. Because it’s showing how some people like Doritos or Pepsi Better. I think they are both good to me doritos are my favorite. Pepsi is my favorite type of soft drink to me it’s so good and strong.

    Yes i think that this is a smart way to advertise the costumers because people see how funny they are they might think that the product they are advertising could be bought a lot. also yes i think that involving customers in this might be a smart way to get more people to buy their items because the customers are having fun and they can start liking the item more.

    I think that its a good idea because people can make commercials and then the company can just pick which one they like the best. They get to pick the one that sales the product the best. It is a good way to advertise for the company because if we think it sales the product good then hopefully people will start to buy them because they seen the commercial. Some people think that just because people on the commercials have them, that they have to have them. So i think that commercials help sale the product pretty good.

    It is a good way to advertise because they make it interesting, and funny. And it will give more people to like Doritos. But some people don’t like Doritos or Pepsi. So it might not be everybody but there is a whole lot of people that like Pepsi, Doritos.

    It is smart because of all the viewers of a super bowl. The money is a good way to advertise more. It is smart to be involed knowing that you have a career ahead doing it. Costumers dream of doing it because they get fame and be on their favorite show. It is very smart for everyone that sees it which makes them want the product.

    I think its a great idea using comedy for avrotisment pourpouses. since the econimy has been going bad people have been turning to comedy for a forgetting to the whole consept to turn there back on there serios lives to kick back and relax. so i think its a stupidly smart way to get people to buy a product. populer choices action, comedy, romantic comedy or family film.

    I think it is awesome. Because the commercials are by the customers for the customers to start buying the product which also gives the commercial creator to earn 2 million dollars. It pretty cool because you get to make something funny and get rewarded. It is a pretty good idea because the customers understand what other customers want to see in ads. It is Genius.

    i think that it will help a lot because like that if it funny they will want to watch it over and over again and maybe they’ll crave Doritos and other things.
    and the viewers of the super bowl would like to have a laugh in the commercials or something else! and also the people have a future doing that

    Okay, So I think that it’s a good idea because it allows the people to see regular people trying the product.And More people would like to buy it because they see normal, regular people trying it. Maybe if they had like celebrities trying it though more people would buy it. Like the one where they have Betty white more people who like her may of bought it. So I think its a smart way to advertise the product.

    This is definetly a good way to show your company off. Millions of people watch the super bowl, with Millions watching your product spreads fast. Also I think it is a good idea to let the public get a vote in what commercial there will be. Its a great way to get people to sponsor there products as well. Thats what i think at least.

    Idk if it will be good but it would help thier advertising i guess. Because it doesnt make that much of a diff who makes the the thing. But rather if it is a good product for selling stuff and what not.I just think its pointless i mean we dont get no money from it so whats the point? thats all i got to say for this ttyl peace 🙂

    i think that this seems to work a little bit, but nothing over impressive, if you know what i mean. i also think that this is a little desperate. i think that it is sad that they have to resort to cheap advertising like such…..i wonder if they want these other people to do the creative advertising for them, because they suck at what they do….therefor have little respect for them. and to everyone who reads this, tell me if i offend you, i might want to offend you later.
