Doritos 'Crash the Superbowl' finalists announced

Late last year, StopPress covered the efforts of a team of Kiwi creatives who entered the Doritos "Crash the Superbowl' competition, which invited ad makers the world over to vie for a chance to have their original ad appear during the Superbowl on 2 Februrary. Although the Kiwis didn't make the final cut, the five shortlisted entries are definitely worth a watch.

One is innocent until proven guilty. And this means that even when caught orange-handed, you should always employ the age-old tactic of deny, deny, deny.

This entry goes a long way to prove the Ancient Grecian scientific theorem that infers that the number of seconds spent by animals and children onscreen during an advert is directly proportional to the likeability of the ad.   

If the deny tactic doesn't absolve you of guilt, then you can always employ the "blame the ostrich" evasion strategy used in this office-based entry.

With over two million views, this disgusting entry shows that 'finger-licking good' isn't always a good thing. 

A child reveals the gullibility of an adult in this time-travel inspired spot.
