Lets Clear the Confusion

Yayyy!!! There is some confusion, but yes, Eddie did win the Doritos Super Bowl Commercial Contest. Sometimes this is forgotten because we did not win a million dollars (a sort of unrelated prize) but Eddie still had a commercial shown in the super bowl to be seen by about 120 million people. That is HUGE. When Eddie's commercial was shown it was such a high, we were all so thrilled, but when the results were tallied up after the game and we didn't win the million, this depression settled when everyone forgot about the original big accomplishment. We only got a couple hours of excitement and I couldn't even talk to Eddie then! They took everyone's cell phones away in the box at the game so no one could find out the current results of the Ad Meter and know if any of the winners would also win the million.

There seems to be this sadness hanging around, this dark mist, because there's no million dollars. I feel like we forget that Eddie and his buddy were the winners of a contest with about 4,500 other entrants. To be honest, when we're talking rationally, we realize that winning a million dollars this way would bring with it SO many problems. Already, some "true colors" came out just from this small amount of publicity that we'd hope would never show up. I could only imagine how difficult things could be if money was involved.

We are glad to hear that they won. We just assumed that the other commercial had won. We have seen "The Best Part" commercial a few times on TV these past few weeks after the Super Bowl Which has been fun. We had fun voting for you. Way to go!

I'm glad you posted this because David & I were trying to figure out who the actual winner was, so shortly after we saw your commercial, we tried looking it up online to see if the actual winner was posted anywhere. We thought it said one of the other commercials that aired was the actual winner, so we were a little bummed. I'm so glad that you guys actually won! It was by far the best commercial!

I was so excited for you guys when I saw the commercial! It really was awesome! Its such a huge accomplishment for him and I'm sure it will have huge benefits soon enough. I know it sucks to not have a mil, but you'd probably end up on some reality show on VH1 or something, talking about how your life is over cause you can't afford another benz.
