Giant Doll, Ellie @ Queen St

On last Sunday afternoon, as I was on my way to Woolworths at MacArthur Central, I saw a giant sweet looking doll along Queen Street. I found out that Ellie is starring for Allen's Lollies commercial (according to Brisbanetimes). This certainly interests me as I get to see the real work of making a commercial. Looks like my grocery shopping is delay a bit.

Watch "Ellie" in action.

After spending some time watching the commercial shooting, I ended up at Starbucks near Queen Street to continue my observation with my beverage. Did I go to Woolworths in the end? The answer is no, because I completely forgot about it :-)

Hi! Thanks for dropping by my blog. It was interesting watching the how the commercial was made. Now, I can't wait to see the commercial on tv.
