The commercial, titled Triangle Power, will be produced by award-winning filmmaker and documentarian Dr. Jon Smith and directed by award-winning film director Ellen Treanor. The spot will run on www.crashthesuperbowl.doritos.com and be eligible for a $1 million prize if chosen as winner.

The dancers will celebrate the victory in a sequence in the hallway of Cedar High School. Chandler Hall, a communication major at SUU, will be the lead choreographer.

Southern Utah University sponsors the Film Making Club to support the effort headed by Smith. The crew for the commercial is entirely student run. Frito Lay has been holding the global Crash the Super Bowl contest since 2007.
