Zabielski's video, called "The Middle Seat," was selected from a pool of almost 4,900 entrants from 29 countries by Doritos to be a finalist. The grand-prize winner will be selected based on viewer votes and a first-prize winner will be selected by Doritos. Both winners will see their ads aired during the Super Bowl broadcast. Voting is currently open.
Zabielski studied film at the University of Southern California and, while in college, was a finalist in the Coca Cola Refreshing Filmmakers contest. He is currently a director and executive producer at Tosh.0 on Comedy Central, and lives in Los Angeles.
