Trojans Crash the Superbowl – Again

SCA Grads are finalists for Doritos Contest

A still from Lemonade Stand

Every year, the Doritos’ "Crash the Super Bowl" Contest, a commercial competition judged by popular vote, awards a $1,000,000 prize to the winners. This year, two teams of SCA alums made it to the final 10. Middle Seat, a commercial by SCA graduates, Scott Zabielski, Genevieve Younce Zabielski, Chris McKinley, Andrew Huebscher, Jason Cochard, and Shelley LaRue, follows one man’s quest to keep the middle seat in his airplane aisle empty. In the other finalist, Lemonade Stand -- created by SCA duo, Dave Horowitz and Nick Sivakumaran -- a little girl finds a creative new way to maximize her lemonade stand profits.

SCA has always had a big presence in Doritos’ commercial competitions. In 2011, SCA alums, J.R. Burningham and Tess Ortbals, even took home the grand prize of one million dollars with their commercial, Pug Attack.
