The Doritos commercial Super Bowl contest winner has been announced and the creator of the winning Doritos commercial spent $200 and eight hours to win the $1 million prize. The "Time Machine" Doritos commercial was the winner, according to WSLS News Channel on Feb. 3.

Raj Suri, who is a graduate of Virginia Tech, was announced as the $1 million winner Monday during "Good Morning America" for his "Time Machine" Doritos commercial. Suri and his team found out Monday morning that the $1 million prize is coming his way, reports USA Today.

The Scottsdale, Arizona man learned on Jan. 2 that his Doritos commercial was chosen as one of the five finalist. The five finalist were brought to NYC for five days for the Super Bow festivities and then the big game.

It wasn't until the Super Bowl game was underway that Suri found out that he was one of the two finalists. His commercial aired during the big game indicating that he was still very much in the running and that he only had one competitor left to contend with.

Suri, featured his son in the commercial that shows a man humoring a kid who has a cardboard box that he calls his time machine. In the commercial the kid gets Suri to hand over his bag of Doritos.

Check out the winning Doritos Super Bowl commercial in the video above.

This video only took eight hours to film and cost $200 to make, but yet it played alongside the big boys who paid astronomical amounts of money to produce and air their commercials. It is very apparent that Suri has what it takes as an advertiser. It is also apparent that the little boy in the commercial is a natural!
