Talking See MY Home Town in this Nike ad !

I don't list my home town because I don't want to draw unwanted attention, but this time I will.

World Wide attention was brought to my hometown in this Nike ad:

That is our water tower at the beginning.
The Fire Department is flashed at about 43 seconds in.

London, OH featured in international Nike ad campaign

(by Kristy Zurbrick, Madison Editor - July 25, 2012)

London, Ohio, plays a part in an international advertising campaign released in time for the 2012 Olympic Games in London, England, which open July 27 and run through Aug. 12.


Local makes the final cut
At least one local person made the final cut for the 60-second spot. Justin Emrich, London Middle School’s wrestling coach


I honestly had no idea this was being filmed here till Thursday when a friend posted the YouTube link on Facebook.

That's really neat! It's a good commercial, too.

I thought that looked like Davis Road, but they say it was Old Xenia Road.
I've ridden that on my bike many times.

btw, our water tower does NOT say OHIO on it. Must be a digital add on.
