We’ve had some excitement in our quiet little neighborhood this week. On Monday we were told that Coke Zero would be shooting a commercial at our neighbor’s house.
Early yesterday morning the trucks started arriving. Lights, scaffolding, cameras, and even a few police cars began to emerge. By noontime, there was about 100+ people all hustling and bustling around.The activity lasted until 8:00 pm. Then, it started all over again at 6:00 this morning.
Gosh, I had no idea it took so much coordination, camera crew, and green cash to pull off a 30 second commercial. The budget for this project must be pretty hefty.
And, you may be asking…who is the celebrity?
Well, have you heard of Danica Patrick? She is the most successful woman in the history of American open-wheel racing. Or, at least that’s what Wikipedia says. Danica became the first female NASCAR driver to win a NASCAR Sprint Cup Series pole, turning in the fastest qualifying lap since 1990 in qualifying for the Daytona 500’s.
Pretty awesome, huh? And, to think she walked right in front of my very own little yard.Check out the celebrity photos I took while peeking out from my bedroom blinds.
