Claritin had a 15 sec. spot that was filmed in the Gunks. I'm too lazy to find it on Youtube and post it here. Gunkiemike

I know the guy in the second coors light ad pretty well. He actually wrote the guidebook for Southcentral/east Alaska rock. Always nice to see them using real climbers for ads about our sport. Ty Morrison-Heath

Nope Ryan, still quite warm at the moment! But some coors lite will definitely change it!

Coors one is pretty original, but my favorite yet is still the Katie Brown one from last year. That one rocks. Woodchuck ATC

I gotta say, I love the Coors Light ones. The Citi bank one is great too, partly because I like the song IronMan

Being older and not listening much to current music,I only know that song from the commercial and still have no clue who it is or what the whole song sounds like...So I thought it was written for the commercial at first.

Glad to hear the commercials are doing well! I am the guy handing off the beer in the second one heh. It was one of my best jobs so far swinging around in the glacier for a week! Prezwoodz

Rock Climbing Photo: Kevin Donald said this about this piece."This...
Kevin Donald said this about this piece."This was shot on the Super Nova Wall in Yosemite. (next to The Rostrom) Damn, the truck was heavy! It took hours to haul that thing up the face. Kenji and Hans did all the work. Mark Chapman was head rigger on this commercial and a number of Valley climbers including Ron Kauk and his son helped carry camera equipment and other essentials to the location. One evening, after finishing-up the porta-ledge scenes, Hans asked me to climb The Nose with him at night. (we had a full moon) He was serious and absolutely sure we could do it and be back on the valley floor in time for work in the morning. I made some lame-ass excuse and begged-off. Now I wish I had done it with him. Lesson learned. — with Kenji Haroutunian and Hans Florine at Yosemite California"

That's awesome! I am glad they actually hired you guys instead some actors pretending to be climbers.

Lolz, next time if I see you in person, I would love to have you sign my beer ;)

With the legend himself, a very tasteful commercial.

Nice thread!

I'm curious where the Coors commercials were filmed. It doesn't look like Colorado, so I'm curious why not. Anyway, I think it's pretty neat that we have one of the climbers in the second commercial here! What's it like to film a commercial like that?

Also, where is Yvonne climbing in the first part of the commercial where he is climbing present day.

Thanks!

Back in like 1994-95 ish there was a commercial airing during the NBA playoffs and it was shot in France with Steve Petro climbing and then another party of climbers helps him get to the top. Later that evening Petro buys all the guys a round when he runs into them at the local pub.

-Petro is absolutely amazing - Wind, Sand, and Stars! - ZNP, also his appearance in Moving Over Stone in Fremont Canyon I think it was....at the time of the filming he pulled that 5.13 unrepeated over hang finger crack - I'll never forget him pulling up over that roof - Classic.

Wish I could find that Commercial that was shot in France - it'd be cool to see that again.
