Doritos has unveiled the 29 semifinalists in its ad competition “Crash the Super Bowl” and Three Aussies made the cut from a pool of 4,900 submissions.

Since mid September, fans have been sharing their love of Doritos chips by creating and submitting 30-second homemade advertisements as part of the contest that will ultimately see two lucky winners’ ads air in front of a global television audience during the Super Bowl XLIX broadcast.

The creator of the ad receiving the most fan votes will win a guaranteed $1 million grand prize, as well as an opportunity unlike any other in the history of the contest: a chance to work as a contractor for a full year onsite at Universal Pictures in Hollywood where they will lend their creative talents to a variety of projects, including future Universal Pictures releases such as “Pitch Perfect 2” and other big comedies.
