Fan Made

This month we’ve partnered up with Doritos to help get the word out on their Crash the Super Bowl: Hollywood Edition contest. Sure, it’s all part of an elaborate and decidedly red-colored advertising campaign, but there’s also something else at work: the chance for an aspiring filmmaker (we’re told a few of those visit this site) to win a million dollars and the career opportunity of a lifetime. Even if Doritos wasn’t helping us keep the lights on around here, we’d still think that was a pretty neat contest. Either way, we think you should know about it. So here’s some info… Think you can make your own great Super Bowl commercial? Well, Doritos wants to give you a shot to do it. All you have to do is make and submit a killer Super Bowl spot, be funnier than some of Hollywood’s best and brightest, and all the fame and fortune of filmmaking could be yours. Well, for the most part.

The making of The Case is the impetus for much of the film’s happenstance, which leads to the film’s adventure, which as you might expect, leads to all the best moments. It’s easy to see why artist Yehudi Mercado — who happens to be the same artist behind the Game of Thrones of Muppets art I featured last night — chose to celebrate it with this lovely fan piece, complete with lens flairs.
