With four minutes left to go, Super Bowl XLIX is still a nail-biter. But the 2014-2015 installment of the Crash the Super Bowl contest is finally over. The two winning fan-made commercials were:
Middle Seat by Scott Zabielski:
and When Pigs Fly by Nelson Talbot:
Here’s what it looked like inside FritoLay’s private box at the Super Bowl when “Middle Seat” aired:
Man, there were a lot of good sports in that box. And that includes Elizabeth Banks. She didn’t try and squirm away when the winning director gave her a weirdly long hug.
I wasn’t surprised when Middle Seat aired but I really didn’t think When Pigs Fly would win. Both commercials looked damn good and for some reason, When Pigs Fly just seemed more amusing on TV. We’ll find out tomorrow morning which commercial was picked by the judges and which one won the online vote. The ad picked by the judges will get $50,000 and the one picked by the fans will win a million bucks. Middle Seat was the best and most professional finalist this year so I have a feeling the judges picked that one. If I’m right, that means that When Pigs Fly will probably take home the grand prize.
UPDATE: Ha. Well I was wrong. “Middle Seat” won the million dollars!
