Front Page Films Doritos ad played in Super Bowl pre-game

For anyone wondering how Oren Brimer, Pete Holmes and Matt McCarthy did in that Doritos contest…their ad (which also features Glennis McMurray and Jay Bois) aired on the TV everywhere people watch the NBC television network at 4:17 p.m. Eastern during the Super Bowl pre-game show. It may air again or not. And if it gets voted the most popular of tonight's Super Bowl ad in the USA Today Ad Meter, then they will win $1 million. They already won $25,000. Congrats!

Update from Holmes via Facebook status update:

Pete – our commercial just aired on NBC but we haven't won officially – two spots will air during the game and THAT'S what we're hoping for!! But WOO-HOO! 4:30pm

Post-game update from Holmes:

Pete -we didn't officially "win", but our commercial aired during pre-game on NBC and will continue airing thru 2009! THANK YOU for your votes and support!! 10:35pmComment
