Lights Action Camera

Work was really different yesterday. First off I had to be in at 6:30. Wait I am getting a head of my self. I work as a waitress at Kelcy's. It is a restaurant that was started in the 1930's called Krusty's. In the 1960's Kelcy bought it. It is the same now as it was back then. When you walk in ,it's like walking back in time. Everything is styled after the 50's.
This is a picture of the restaurant. You will be seeing it again in a Dodge commercial. They spent all day Wednesday filming  a 4th of July parade out front. Then yesterday they were filming inside of the restaurant. They had the whole front decorated . It looked like they used the decorations to try to hide the name of the restaurant. But I am not sure. I'll find out for sure when it airs. I took a lot of pictures of the crew , actors, and their equipment. Only to find out I could  use them for private use,but couldn't put them on the internet.

                  So the picture that started this post is from the internet. The rest are of the restaurant.
We had to close the restaurant to our regular customers till they were done. We have a small group that meets there this time every month. So we had to serve them. That's the reason I went in early.So we could get them in and out.

  At 7;00 they started bringing in lights, camera, equipment, and more cord then I  ever seen at one time. They were all very nice and polite.  We did have to hide in the back room and be quiet while they were filming . I had a deck of cards in my purse. So we played poker using jellies to bet with. I learned one important thing out of that. The next time I go to Vegas I am so taking Megan with me! We got to see them do some of the filming inside.We all agreed that you could tell the cooks were actors. They were to clean. Every true cook has at least one grease stain on them. We also watched them  thru the front windows when they were filming outside. They finished up at about 11:00 for our part. Then moved on to the next street and the barber shop. I asked when it might be out. They said in about two weeks. So if you see a Dodge commercial with cars and trucks in a 4th of July parade. We are the restaurant the waitress and customers run out of to see the parade. I don't know how much if it will be in the commercial since they said they only use half of what they film.  I almost forgot. They also used Christian's truck in it. They paid her $200 for the use of it. It turned out to be a lot of fun.

                           When I see the commercial on the air I will give everyone a heads up.


  1. You know I will be taping your 15 seconds of fame. LOL. Love you!!!

  2. Sorry I am not in it. I was in hiding.

  3. It made for an exciting day I'm sure! :)

  4. OK... How cool is that?! We've had a few things filmed around here in the past, but I was never that closely linked to any of it. I love how you and the other "real" employees noticed all of the subtle differences, like the cooks having clean aprons. LOL So true. I'll definitely keep an eye out for the commercial, Michelle! Have an awesome weekend! ~Mary
