LA Ad Town: Union Station as Santa's Garage
Thanks to Friend of Franklin Avenue Will Campbell, who caught this spot for Mercedes Benz the other night: "During a Modern Family commercial break what to my wondering eyes should appear but a completely cleared out Union Station main terminal masquerading as Santa's garage during a Mercedes Benz holiday spot."
Maria and I caught that spot as well, and were trying to figure out how they pulled this off. We assumed it was a computer-generated use of Union Station's main terminal -- but is there a chance they moved out everything to shoot this ad? (I'm guessing no... but still, quite an cool use of the Union Station look as Santa's garage.)
