Doritos Crash The Superbowl Ad Contest Rules Says Can Steal Your Entry And Not Give Credit

So Doritos brand tortilla chips runs this contest every year to draw in user-made ads that aim to play during The Super Bowl. BUT, you have to read their fine print. Check this little cheat in their official contest rules (link above, can be found via their official website, also link above):

By entering this Contest and uploading your Submission, you irrevocably grant to
Sponsor and their agents, to the extent permissible by law, the unconditional and
perpetual right to post, display, broadcast, publish, use, adapt, edit, translate, dub,
and/or modify such Submission in any way, in any and all media, throughout the world,
for any purpose, without limitation, and without notice or consideration to you.

You know what that means? It means that if you submit an incredibly awesome ad that you came up with all by yourself, starring yourself, then Doritos can steal your idea, or use some Hollywood hocus-pocus and erase you out of it, or do whatever, and not have to tell you anything about their con.

That’s some shady stuff.

Why not just say: make us a commercial for free? That million dollar prize is just to trick you to make us an awesome FREE commercial, of which we will profit off of.

ALWAYS read the fine print.

USD$100 Up For Grabs: Convince Me

By Chongchen Saelee

Consider this a social experiment. This is NOT A JOKE. I want to see if anyone will take the bait… and I’ll document it.

Consider this my act of kindness with a twist.

If you have a PayPal account, a real one (don’t con me), I’m willing to give you USD$1 as a donation until that USD$100 is dispensed or I close the contest. But you have to convince me. Leave a comment with your real name and email in the comments and why I should give you free money. If you post any pics, make sure you own the rights or have permission to do so.

Whoever I decide to give money to agrees that I now have the right to use your likeness and submitted content to publicize my contest or use in any marketing materials as I see fit, which includes my YouTube videos, various blogs, printed materials, etc. That’s the only catch. Not too complicated.

Good luck!

DISCLAIMER: ALL DECISIONS ARE MADE BY ME AND FINAL
