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)

    i will involve the costumers because it will get people buying Doritos and also making commercials about them. once people start to eat doritos and make commercial about them, they will start to like doritos and buy them more often. once people buy a product and they like, which pepsi and doritos is trying to do, they will buy them more often and will eventually make more money for the buisness’s.

    I dont think there is anything wrong with them advertiseing it. Pepsi will be sponsered more then doritos will but they will both get an good amount. I think that it is good because so many people watch the super bowl. The top commercials in america are usally on the superbowl. Thats what i think.

    No i don’t think its a good idea because it will cost a lot of money to pay for these 10 commercials. So i don’t think it is a very good idea. There you go Mr.Steed. Think you for asking Mr.Steed.

    More customers will buy those products. If the commercial is good enough to make people laugh. And if the commercial has a product that tastes good and with a good commercial more people will buy. And the reason people buy that stuff is because the commercial is good and made by a customer. More people will buy if more commercials are made by customers that know how to make people laugh.

    I THINK THIS IS A GOOD WAY BECAUSE IT MAKES PEOPLE NOW THAT YOUR COMPANY IS GOOD. PLUS IT TELL PEOPLE THAT WHEN YOU COME TO YOUR COMPANY ARE BUY SOMETHING FROM YOUR COMPANY YOU LEAVE WITH A SMILE OR LAUGH. THIS IS A GOOD WAY FOR YOUR COSTUMERS TO GET INVOLVE AND COME UP WITH THERE OWN IDEAS.

    The best one to me is the dorito one beacause it has better appeal. The kids they put in the commercials is funny. It also sponsers the doritos perfectly. It humorous to the audience.

    i think that this a good idea. we are able to see how much other people like there food or drinks. they can get other people liking them to just from them watching the commercials. i think that it is a good idea they should use this for more than this.

    i think its a good way to advertise their products. i would do the same thing to. i mean im giving 2 million away to the people who made it while im making about 10 times that for brodcasting it. its a win win situation here for the companies. and for so many to enter and only 10 picked is another way to get people to but the products becouse in order for someone to endorse a product they have to buy it and show it in the commercial. 😀

    i think that it is okay to advertise commercials like that which i think is really funny how they advertised Doritos. i think it s a good way to advertise cause a lot of people watch the commercials and they like them. so people buy their merchandise. the more that commercial plays and more people watch it more and more customers will buy those products. thats why I dont think there is anything wrong with them advertising.

    I feel that it is a good idea because people will do anything for all that money! Think about it, those companies make money from those commercials. Of course there will be a lot of people making those commercials because they want the money. Or for the simple fact that they just want to be on t.v. I think it is a smart way to involve the customers because the company makes money off of them when they buy their products so they should pay their customers in return. I think of it as a way of showing their customers the appreciation of their service.

    I think it’s a good way to advertise. Involving customers gives commercials a bit of a bandwagon outlook. It makes the viewer think that “Hey, if these people enjoy this product so much, then maybe i will too!” So, they go out and buy the product. If they like it, then the process continues with more people.

    this is a good way to advertise because many people watch the super bowl. also many hungry people watch the super bowl and chances are if they haven’t gotten food yet maybe during half time they will get the advertised food. that is what i would do. usually after half time i crave Doritos and snickers. don’t be haven money so i cant get those things.

    i think it is. it is a good idea because it give customers a way to get involved. if Pepsi or the Doritos companies wanted to make a commercials then they would have as much ideas as thousands of other people would have. so i think it is a good idea.
