The One with the Wendy's Commercial

On June 24th 2012 I blogged a few Instagram pictures, one of which was the filming of a Wendy's commercial at one of the houses in the neighborhood behind our apartment that is ALWAYS getting filmed at:

To quote myself, "There was a fake yard sale set up all over the front lawn. I'm not sure what a yard sale has to do with fast food... only time will tell!"
Well, time told during The Bachelorette finale - best season ever, by the way. I heart Jef and Emily. But I digress, here is the commercial:

Here are pics I took of the filming scene on June 13th 2012:
Trucks, trucks, and more trucks. It's pretty amazing how many trucks and equipment and people are needed for a 32 second commercial.

Zoomed in, you can totally see the red-haired girl with the blue shirt and the actor in the barcalounger:

Filming took place on June 13th and just over a month later it's a commercial! That was a pretty quick turnaround. And it's really fun to see on the big screen :) Perhaps I'll be a bit more inclined to try the Baconator next time I'm at Wendy's.

I love Wendy's -- my first job. Maybe next time you see them out, you should drop my name and have them put me in their next commercial. :)
