Local Video Crew Makes a Run at One Million Dollars
OMAHA (KPTM)- One million dollars and getting your commercial aired during the Superbowl. It would be a dream come true for the crew of six people who put together "The Interview." It's a Doritos commercial made entirely with Omaha talent.
If the team wins, it will evenly split the money.
"I think is goes to show that with any production you've got to get your village of people together and they have to be involved and you end up with something like this versus something that feels flat," said Jim Strathman, the commercial's director.
Cullen Chollett is the lead actor who plays a lackadaisical out of work 40 year old adolescent who interviews for a job and gets it because his briefcase is packed with Doritos.
"If we win the million dollars, I can quit the job that I just got," said Chollett, who stayed in character throughout our Fox 42 interview.
So far, "The Interview" is the most viewed entry in the Doritos contest. The entry with the most Internet votes wins the $1 million, a trip to the Superbowl in New York, a private party at the Superbowl, and a guarantee that the commercial will run during the Superbowl.?
"Omaha, help Omaha, would you? We need your votes. Go to www.doritos.com, look up "The Interview," and vote for us. Give us five stars at the bottom left."
There will be two finalists. Both will earn trips to the Superbowl. The second place entry will receive $50,000.
