L.A. Ad Town: Esurance Edition



Franklin Avenue reader Andy turns us on to L.A.'s cameo in a recent Esurance commercial (above):

Looks like they 'shoped out some dead giveaways, but I recognized La Brea Ave and 8th at 0:01. I attached a screen shot from the YouTube video, and one from Google Maps.


Thanks Andy! Here are his two examples:

The only cameo I've seen lately is the Glendale Embassy Suites, in a commercial for... Embassy Suites. Which was a weird choice, considering almost all other Embassy Suites all over America look almost identical, *except* the one in Glendale, which they chose for the commercial. And then I realized how lame it was that I've somehow become an expert on Embassy Suites, and how even lamer it is that I can recognize the one in Glendale...

That Firestone's also Richard Pryor's tire dealership where Balthazar Getty works in David Lynch "Lost HighwaY" http://www.dailymotion.com/video/xkzhev_pete-s-back-to-work_shortfilms
