A car commercial was filmed in Downtown Tacoma, WA yesterday and it is believed to be for the Lexus IS-F.
I guess it is now said to be a Acura TL Type S but the film crew was telling people it was Lexus.. Sneaky.. I thought the pointed back end looked more like an Acura.
Notices were posted all over downtown:
On behalf of the producing company, Boxer Films and the crew of a new “Car Commercial” we would like to offer our thanks to you and your neighbors for the opportunity to film in your neighborhood. On Sunday – July 13, 2008 we will be filming scenes in and around Tacoma.
We will be filming car-to-car driving shots in and around the Central Business District. This area will include the streets between A Street and Pacific to the East and West and between 8th St. and 13th Street to the North and South. Traffic will be controlled by Tacoma Police (ITC) as we drive on loops throughout this area. The work here will take place from approximately 7:00 am to 6:00 pm. Please indulge our request that there be no parking in front of “NO PARKING” barricades in this area at this time …
