Triangle Videographer Scores Superbowl Spot

Posted in advertising, culture, food, raleigh with tags , , , , on February 8, 2010 by killahfunkadelic

Raleigh based 5 Point Productions scored big last night when their Doritos advertising competition entry aired during the first quarter of the Super Bowl, netting $50,000 in prize money, plus an additional $600,000 by winning 2nd favorite commercial in USA Today’s Ad Meter.

Producer Josh Svoboda’s commercial, ‘Underdog,’ features a man on a park bench taunting a dog wearing an electric shock collar, telling the dog to bark if it wants a Dorito. The dog, however, is not amused and gives the man some well-deserved comedic payback. The commercial was filmed at Cary’s Bond Park.
