Mayonnaise commercial filming in the Mission

Film production trailers

Film production trailers

These film production trailers showed up at 15th and Mission recently. But what for, you may ask? A new TV thriller? An exciting action-packed movie?

Well according to the lady I asked, they’re shooting a commercial is for Best Foods mayonnaise. Man, how… not exciting. Oh well.

I’m sure this conversation happens all the time:

“Meet me at City Lights.”
“Oh, the bookstore in North Beach?”
“No, the light bulb store in SOMA!”

The Treats of San Francisco

The Treats of San Francisco

A Quinn-Martin production!

Wait… what? This is some kind of cheesy Muni ad for buying a Muni Passport and visiting Ghirardelli Square. It has nothing to do with Karl Malden and/or Michael Douglas.

Soviet Life

June 5th, 2011

Soviet Life Soviet Life Soviet Life Soviet Life

A while back, one of my co-workers brought in a 1985 edition of Soviet Life magazine. If you’re not familiar with it, Soviet Life was a propaganda magazine produced in association with the USSR for readers in the United States. As part of an agreement, a similar propaganda magazine was produced by the USA for sale in the USSR.

Amusingly, this issue goes into the wonders of digital television, an idea that didn’t become available outside of the lab until a decade after the Soviet Union broke up.

See the rest of the photos of this issue here.
