Australia's final ever hope of crashing the Super Bowl now rests on the shoulders of an Australian filmmaker and a baby trying to escape the womb.

The last ever Doritos' 'Crash the Super Bowl' contest is down to the wire, with the competition whittled down to three hilarious entries all vying to take home the prize.

The competition invites consumers to create their own ad for the brand, with the winner receiving US$1 million, their commercial given air time during the Super Bowl, and the opportunity to collaborate with director Zack Snyder while working with Warner Bros. Pictures and DC Entertainment.

Australia's Peter Carstairs is one of the three chosen out of a field of 4500 entries, with his ad 'Ultrasound', the tale of a baby in utero who really, really wants Doritos. You can use your imagination to guess what happens next (or watch the video).

The Crash the Super Bowl competition has been running since 2006, with this year marking the final iteration of the event. Australia is the only country outside of the US to make it to the finals three years in a row.

Last year, Australia's Armand de Saint-Salvy was the only Aussie to battle it out in the top 10 of the competition, while Finger Cleaner created by Tom Noakes was the only non-US ad to make it into the final round of the 2014 competition.

The winner of the 2016 and final Crash the Super Bowl competition will be announced on 7 February during the Super Bowl. Check out the other finalists below.
