FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WOWO): The Denver Broncos weren’t the only winners of Super Bowl 50. An Indiana college graduate was also a winner this weekend because of a commercial he submitted in Doritos’ “Crash the Super Bowl” contest.

It’s the 10th year for the ad contest, in which anyone can create an ad that is then voted on to determine what commercials will promote the company in the Super Bowl.

This year a 2010 Franklin College graduate, Travis Braun, won the $1 million prize and some massive exposure.

He produced the “Dorito Dogs” commercial, which beat out the other two finalists, “Swipe for Doritos” and “Ultrasound.”

Braun’s video shows three dogs trying to get into a supermarket to get some Doritos. They use different distractions and disguises to get the chips.
