The VCK Rates Your Doritos Submission


As a past finalist in the Doritos Crash The Superbowl contest, I saw a lot, heard a lot, and learned a lot……about the Doritos brand. That first year of the contest it was heady times. Going to Miami with the other four finalists was a memory I’ll never forget. No brand had ever done what Doritos was about to do, and the advertising world was riveted. I can’t tell you how many calls I fielded from reporters/news-outlets requesting interviews/scoops. I was interviewed by MSN, the WALLSTREET JOURNAL (among many others), heck even Charles Gibson (World News Tonight) sent out a crew to my house and did a story on little old VCK. I am not a big fan of Keith Olberman, so it was a little awkward when I found out he dug my commercial and featured it on his program. Frankly, I think he should have stuck to sports broadcasting. I digress. I can remember one day when, for 6 hours, then president George Bush and yours truly shared Yahoo’s News main landing page. Like I said, heady times.

Throughout the CTSB experience I made sure to gather as much information as I could about the process. Information I could refer back to at later times when such information might benefit the VCK blog……or….a post dedicated to providing reviews and ratings for VCK readers. A method of providing peer input relative to the CTSB submissions and their creators. That brings us to the topic of this blog.

If you have a horse in the Doritos Race. I will gladly size her up. I will give you a VCK rating for your video and place you on the VCK leader board. I may or may not provide substantiation for my rating, and I rarely will give you a ‘pat on the back’ for your work. If you’re lucky I’ll let you know of things you could do to improve your creative/storytelling, but minimally you will know how the VCK thinks your work stacks up against your peers through your rating.

Your rating will fall within the range of 1.00 – 100.00. When I rate your video, I’ll be applying what I know about branding, creating the “:30 spot”, and what I think Doritos will be looking for when they review your spot.

So if you’d like to get ranked on the VCK, submit a link to your video in the comments section. One bit of criteria I have is that you must be a creative, director, producer or actor involved in the project. I will not provide a rating 3rd for party requests.

To get things started I will use my winning submission from 2007 as a guide for content to be judged.
