The new Beecham's TV ad with the Sumo wrestlers was filmed on the road I live on. I am amazed that this 30 second ad took almost six days to film. Apparently they brought two of the sumos from Japan, one from America and the fourth was British. There must have been around 50 people on the crew. Roads were closed all day from 8.00 am to 7.00 pm. They must make a big profit, as the campaign cost £50.000.000

6 days?? That's not very efficient!!
The £5m spent is on the whole campaign not just the TV ad.

My house is on the next block left of the round house where "Becky" is standing. Just noticed the postbox on the corner - which isn't there really.

I didn't mean to be militant. I think I was just thinking to myself £5 Million is a lot for that ad!!
The thought did cross my mind that is was the food expenses bill for the sumo guys for the 6 days.

LOL. You may be near the mark. I walked passed the mobile canteen and saw all the food being cooked. The smell was wafting down my road and made me hungry:).

Strange sport when I think about it.

I am curious was it filmed on Abbington Avenue as I recognise the round house on the corner?
