T-Mobile has attracted its fair share of big-name talent when it comes to the advertising it does for its wireless network. Drake, Snoop Dogg, Martha Stewart, Justin Bieber and Ariana Grande are just some of the stars who have shown up in recent ads.
Could another notable personality (OK, that includes CEO John Legere) be coming to Seattle this week to film a new commercial for the Bellevue, Wash.-based carrier?
A “filming notice” sent out by Vossler, a production company that has worked on previous ads for the company, is letting neighbors around the Pioneer Square neighborhood know that a crew will be working down there this Friday.
Exterior scenes will be filmed from approximately 6 a.m. to 11 a.m. in Occidental Mall between South Main and South Jackson streets, with a “main actor” walking through a crowd of extras. Interior scenes will also be shot at what the notice calls “a private business” at 111 S. Jackson St., from around 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.
That address is home to Galvanize, the 71,000-square-foot tech startup campus that occupies an entire building.
The notice thanks neighbors, on behalf of cast and crew, for the opportunity to film in the neighborhood and asks for patience as pedestrians may need to reroute or stay put briefly during a shot on set. Parking will also be restricted in some parts of the area.
