ROANOKE, VA -

A Virginia Tech graduate has a lot to celebrate.

Raj Suri produced and co-wrote the commercial "Time Machine" and entered it in the Doritos Super Bowl contest, becoming a top five finalist.

The commercial aired in the first quarter of the Super Bowl Sunday night making the commercial one of the top two.

Suri watched the game and the commercial from the Doritos suite at Met Life Stadium in New Jersey.

There are two grand prize winners. The first winner will be decided by popular vote online, and the other will be selected by Doritos.  Both winners will have their commercial aired during the game, but the popular vote winner will walk away with $1 million.  

Suri finds out Monday morning if his takes the top spot.

The commercial has received a lot of praise online.

"Loved it - I usually do not get into commercials but that one was great," wrote Connie Kuhn on the WSLS facebook page.

"@DoritosTimeMach watched your ad so much my 3,4&5 year olds want to build a time machine now and keep asking for Doritos when we shop," tweeted @BenniWest.
