El Paso Native Finalist in Doritos Million Dollar Crash The Super Bowl Contest [VIDEO]
Like me, David Horowitz grew up in El Paso with dreams to one day play for the New York Mets. Unfortunately, those dreams did not come true, but the Coronado High School alum did find another passion to succeed in: film making. Over the last 20 years, Horowitz has lived in Japan, New York, and Santa Monica, and spends his down time working as a video editor for various projects. When he's not cutting and splicing, you will find him managing a bar at the popular Sushi Roku.
David's dream job is producing and editing feature films and music videos. In the meantime, he spent $1,200 and made a commercial entitled "The Lemonade Stand." It stars a little girl who is the grandniece of one of his close friends. Doritos liked it so much that "The Lemonade Stand" is one of 10 Finalists for the Doritos' "Crash The Super Bowl" contest, with first prize being a coveted spot in this year's big game and a $1 million grand prize and shot at a Universal Pictures Dream Job. Fans can vote until January 28th at Doritos.com. Here's "The Lemonade Stand".
Two finalists will be selected to air during the Super Bowl XLIX broadcast. One selected by fan votes and the other by the Doritos brand. The winner of the fan vote will get the $1 million grand prize and a chance to work as a contractor for a full year onsite at Universal Pictures in Hollywood. While there, they will lend their creative talents to a variety of projects, including future Universal Pictures releases such as “Pitch Perfect 2”.
Here's David giving us a behind-the-scenes look at his commercial shoot and what being a finalist in Doritos' "Crash The Super Bowl" contest means to him.
