Rescue Dog ‘Miz’ Goes From Living In A Box To Doritos ‘Crash The Super Bowl’ Finalist
Only in America could a young dog go from a terrible puppy mill existence to being rescued and starring in a commercial that's on the verge of winning $1 million.
Miz, a little white terrier, is one of three rescue dogs taken in by Burbank filmmaker Jacob Chase and his girlfriend, and all three dogs are featured in the Doritos commercial that's been chosen as one of the three finalists in this year's 'Crash the Super Bowl' contest.
When Chase's girlfriend adopted the dog, it looked like it would never be happy. It had lived most of its life in a puppy mill, used for breeding purposes and living in a small box. LA Times:
"She was just frankly a miserable dog," Chase said, explaining how she earned the name Misery initially. "Now, the name is nothing but ironic."
They now call the dog 'Miz', and it's starring in their commercial.
It's the 10th anniversary of the Doritos contest, in which filmmakers send in their homemade Doritos commercials, with the winner getting a million bucks, a slot in the Super Bowl ad lineup, and the chance to work with director Zack Snyder, director of Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice. Chase's commercial had a budget of $1,000, and his mom made most of the costumes.
The winner will be decided by online voting. Here's Chase's effort, followed by the other two finalists:
