Proud Scouser, with a dabbling of Welsh and Irish.
bore yourself silly at my Flickr page...anorak central!
foxy bingo ad was filmed in LARK LANE OFF AIGBURTH ROAD
There's also one for car breakdown cover. I don't know if it's the AA or RAC, but it is filmed around Byrom Street/Museum flyovers and also The Strand (before the walkway was demolished).
Remember the Coca Cola one in St George's Hall?
Plus there was a car one (sorry non-driver - all look same to me!) that started at SGH.

I've just seen an advert with PhilipG in it.
Soft oaties by nutra grain.
Check it out.
Updated weekly with old and new pics.
The New Hovis Ad.
And the making of it here.
From an Article in the Liverpool Echo:
?ONE of the longest TV commercials ever to be made will be filmed on the streets of Liverpool....
The storyline of the ad includes moments in British history over more than 100 years.
Manchester-based company Chief Productions was due to film a recreation of the 1984 miners? strike at Princes Dock today using 150 extras.
Other locations include James Street in Garston, Sweeting Street off Castle Street in the city centre, and the River Mersey where ?Millennium? fireworks will be let off.
Garston is also the location for a recreation of a street party to mark the 1953 Coronation, while Falkner Street in Toxteth will be used to film soldiers leaving for the battlefields of Flanders. Nearby, historic Percy Street will have 150 marching suffragettes.
Kevin Bell, locations co-ordinator at Liverpool Film Office, said: ?This is by far the biggest commercial to be shot in Liverpool and it?s a tremendous coup for the city.....
Sainsburys with Jamie Oliver---Pier Head,Dale St. flyover and Claton Sq.
