See 5 Super Bowl ads competing for $1M (and the one that couldn't air on TV)

Video: The TODAY team takes a look at four of the five finalists in the Doritos Super Bowl Ad campaign, whose winner will have their video aired during the big game.

The Super Bowl is right around the corner, and with it, the annual parade of attention-grabbing Super Bowl ads.

And this year, one of those ads won't just try to make you laugh — it will also land its creator $1 million. Five finalists, chosen from thousands of submissions around the world, are vying for the grand prize in the Doritos "Crash the Super Bowl" contest, and TODAY got a look at the ads on Friday.

Two of these ads will play during the game: Doritos will pick one winner, the other will be chosen by the viewers, and the one with the most votes will win the $1 million prize.

TODAY aired four of the 5 finalists, but one was too provocative for TV. Vote for your favorite at Doritos.com until January 29: (the Super Bowl airs Feb. 2 on FOX).

"Time Machine" by Ryan Anderson, Scottsdale, Ariz.

"Office Thief" by Chris Capel, Valencia, Calif.

"The Cowboy Kid" by Amber Gill, Ladera Ranch, Calif.

"Breakroom Ostrich" by Eric Haviv, Atlanta, Ga.

And finally, the ad TODAY didn't show on TV: "Finger Cleaner" by Thomas Noakes, Sydney, Australia
