Thank you for your patience, we are pleased to announce the 1st place winner of our competition, Sandra Silva, in this video and explain how the top 3 ads were chosen. Basically, since you could only vote for Doritos or Budweiser once, we discounted the fact that these brands also came in 3rd and 4th place with their other ad versions.
Moreover because no one chose Hyundai and Radio Shack had not submitted their ad when we came up with our list—we had to go keep going down the rankings and thus the Cheerios ad became the 3rd place ad from the submissions we received.
