Here is a link to a 30-second Doritos commercial. Why am I linking to it on my blog? Well, it was filmed entirely inside the Creation Museum a few weeks ago. (Note: on some smartphones and tablets, you may not be able to go directly to this Pharaoh-themed Doritos commercial—try your laptop/computer if needed.)
Now, we had nothing to do with the commercial’s scripting and filming. We just allowed a film crew to be here for many hours before the museum opened. In the video you’ll see hints of our Palm Plaza in the museum, which was styled after an Egyptian temple.
This creative commercial has been entered into the $1 million Doritos commercial competition. The winning entry gets shown during the Super Bowl football game next year, plus gets the $1 million cash prize. Independent filmmakers are submitting their commercials now to a special Doritos website, and the entry above is there and ready to be voted on through this link.
If you think it’s a creative spot, forward the video link to others. Right under the video, you will see five stars—click on the star of your choice, which will turn red, and that action records your vote.
Our museum will probably get some publicity if this Doritos commercial does well because it was all filmed here (except for the one-second stock footage of the Egyptian pyramid). You can vote here.
It was encouraging to read some of the feedback from both students and colleges about this event:
Here are some photos taken late last week at the College Expo:
Please plan to attend next year’s College Expo, November 14 and 15.
AiG has published a list of colleges that indicate they teach creation—which is a starting point for parents and students to begin their search for a Christian college that stands on the authority of God’s God. These are colleges where the president has signed a statement that they have agreed with AiG’s statement of faith.* Go to this list at CreationColleges.com
Thanks for stopping by and thanks for praying,
*That is not to say that every professor on each campus agrees with AiG’s statement of faith. Parents and students need to exercise discernment and ask questions about the department that interests them.
