Alumnus Hopes to #CrashTheSuperBowl

by Ryan Bower, Assistant Director of Public Relations

Cedarville University hasn’t fielded a football team for more than 60 years, but it has a chance to be a part of the world’s premier sporting event thanks to the work of 2014 graduate Parker Adams.

Adams entered the Doritos “Crash the Super Bowl” contest this year, and is one of 50 semifinalists still in the running to win the competition. His 30-second spot, “Have You Met Stacy?”, is currently the third-most watched and the sixth-highest rated among the semifinalists.

His commercial can move up in the ranks as more people watch and rate the video, which can be seen by visiting

The field will be narrowed to just three finalists in early January, and the winner will be selected via a fan vote that begins on January 5, 2016. In addition to a $1 million prize, the winning commercial will be featured during the 2016 Super Bowl.

All three finalists will be invited to travel to Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, California, the site of this year’s Super Bowl, to watch the game from a private suite. 

Doritos began the contest during the Super Bowl in 2007, and announced in September that this season would mark the competition’s final year.

Adams currently works for Red Sky Studios, a video production firm located in Birmingham, Alabama. In the fall, Adams’ work was featured in the major motion picture “Woodlawn”.

Located in southwest Ohio, Cedarville University is an accredited, Christ-centered, Baptist institution with an enrollment of 3,711 undergraduate, graduate and online students in more than 100 areas of study. Founded in 1887, Cedarville is recognized nationally for its authentic Christian community, rigorous academic programs, strong graduation and retention rates, accredited professional and health science offerings and leading student satisfaction ratings.
