For eight years, Doritos fans have created amazing advertisements to “Crash the Super Bowl”
This year (2015) – One fan will see their ad aired during the Super Bowl, receive $1 million dollars and get a job with Universal Pictures to help bring major motion pictures to life.
This is an amazing marketing strategy for many reasons. Here are a few…
#1. It gets people talking about and engaged in the product
#2. It draws people to the Doritos Website to watch the videos
#3. Customer reviews are usually more effective than the company saying it themselves

effective marketing strategy for Doritos?
