Ten finalists in its "Crash the Super Bowl" contest will be competing for coveted Super Bowl XLIX airtime and a shot at a $1 million grand prize and Universal Pictures dream job.

Selected from nearly 4,900 submissions representing 29 countries around the world, these 10 finalist ads include a record four international finalists, setting up the possibility that a filmmaker from outside the U.S. could take home the top prize for the first time in contest history.

Two finalist ads will air during the Super Bowl XLIX broadcast, one selected by fan votes on and the other by the Doritos brand.

The creator of the ad receiving the most fan votes will win a guaranteed $1 million grand prize, as well as an opportunity unlike any other in the history of the contest: a chance to work as a contractor for a full year onsite at Universal Pictures in Hollywood, where they will lend their creative talents to a variety of projects, including future Universal Pictures releases such as "Pitch Perfect 2" and other big comedies.

StubHub Tickets
StubHub Super Ball 2015 Ultimate Fan Tailgate Party:

Phoenix Waste Management Open:

StubHub has also seen tremendous demand for the PGA's Waste Management Phoenix Open due to the event being on the same weekend as the Super Bowl this year.

Sales are up 260 percent year over year on StubHub for the Waste Management Phoenix Open. It will be the highest selling Waste Management Phoenix Open in StubHub's history

Ticket security:

StubHub takes a number of different precautions to ensure Super Bowl ticket authenticity. All Super Bowl tickets are hard tickets (no electronic) and are inspected by multiple StubHub employees to ensure authenticity.

All Super Bowl tickets must be retrieved in person at StubHub's ticket headquarters in Glendale at the location of the StubHub Super Ball 2015 ultimate fan tailgate party.

StubHub tips for consumers:

If you share a photo of your ticket through social media or any other way, be sure to cover up the barcode and the serial number below it or you are essentially inviting counterfeiters to copy/paste it and steal your ticket.

Only purchase your ticket from companies where you can pay by credit card. Never pay cash. Be sure the company you are purchasing tickets from has a toll-free customer service number where you can reach a live person in case anything goes wrong.

Do not buy a ticket on the street. It's much too risky.

If a deal seem too good to be true, it probably is.
