I never realized how big of a production commercials are. They had a large crew (including Johnny Knoxville), hundreds of extras, many trucks, buses and vans. The main street in town was closed off for several blocks.
I don't know if this is true, but someone said that the cars they use in the commercials don't have VIN numbers and are destroyed after filming.
I had my Samsung NX200, so I snapped a few photographs.
