yesterday afternoon I was watching the Wings game and they went to a commercial break. I was working on my laptop while watching the game and wasn't paying much attention during the commercials. But when one came on it was to HUGE guys playing a game of chess with a "life-size" chess set. Again, didn't think much of it and went back to reading my computer screen. Then I saw that the commercial was for a Honda Ridgeline. The commercial went off and I didn't think much about it for a few minutes and then remembered talking to my brother about a year ago and he was just starting a job that required him to make a huge chess set. The pieces were about 5-6' high I think he said. Then I remembered that he's done a number of prop/set builds for Honda. I called him up and sure enough, my brother made that chess set! No big deal but I just thought it was kind of cool to see an ad on TV that featured items that my brother actually fabricated.
Some of you may remember a post I made not long ago about a replica Stanley Cup that my brother made for EA Sports. That too came out pretty sweet.
Here's the commercial...
Just thought I'd share.
Have a great day!
