From the ‘in case you wondered too’ file: Production crew at Lucky 5

(WSB photo)

A few people have asked about the production crew at the Lucky 5 gas station/mini-mart (35th/Henderson) earlier today. We stopped to inquire after a tip from Keith. They told us they were shooting a “commercial,” but they weren’t allowed to reveal the client because of a non-disclosure agreement. So all we can tell you is what we saw: A woman was seated in the car, a Volkswagen (with WA plates and a University Volkswagen plate frame), under the canopy. That’s scenic 35th SW in the background. Here’s a different angle, sent by Matthew:

The shoot was over and the crew gone when we went that way again abuut an hour and a half ago.

    It should have been a Crimestoppers commercial due to all the robberies they’ve suffered.

      I think you’re just being rhetorical but CrimeStoppers generally shoots with a local TV station and trust me, TV shoots with a MUCH smaller crew!

    Mayonnaise commercial.

      Yeah, I give these folks credit for just telling us directly they had an NDA rather than making something up as did the crew that lied.

    Did anyone see what type of VW?  Was it an electric VW and the commercial will show how gas stations are no longer needed?

      Looking at the photo it looks like the VW Taos not the new ID4 EV.

    Scenic 35th SW.  :-)
