2 Sets of Penn Alumni Vie For A Superbowl Commercial Spot + 1 Million Dollars!

As far as I know, there are currently 2 sets of Penn alumni who have entered their commercials into the Doritos "Crash the Superbowl" Competition.

If their commercials make it to the top 6 (to be selected by Doritos), America will then vote to determine the top 3 finalist entries that will appear during Superbowl XLIV.   The winner (the ad which ranks #1 on the USA admeter) takes home 1 million dollars!  (check out another alum whose commercial was on during the 2008 Superbowl HERE)

Check out the commercials after the jump...
