A Doritos commercial starring and co-written by a Burbank resident was a co-winner of an annual contest sponsored by the snack company and it aired during the Super Bowl on Sunday.
The ad shows a boy who has created a time machine and he tricks a neighbor, played by Burbank resident Daved Wilkins, into entering the contraption in a ploy to steal his Doritos. When the machine "takes off" using simple maneuvers created by the boy, Wilkins believe he's being transported into the future.
Wilkins worked on the 30-second spot with two longtime friends Ryan Thomas Andersen and Raj Suri, both of whom live in Phoenix. The duo has submitted commercials in the Doritos contest before but never made it to the finals.
Wilkins lived in the Arizona city before moving to Los Angeles with his wife, Melissa, on June 3, 2010 —their fourth wedding anniversary — to pursue an acting career.
