From the City Manager’s report. By the way, has anyone seen the Honda Pilot commercial shot in Hayward? Portions were filmed at the newly renovated 1/4-pound Giant Burger and the San Mateo-Hayward Bridge.

Harley Davidson Commercial – Saturday, March 31 – Fresh off a Honda Pilot commercial filmed in December 2011, another vehicle company has chosen Hayward as their location for filming. On Saturday, March 31, Gravy Productions LLC in partnership with Harley Davidson, will be filming a still shoot commercial in front of Casper’s Hot Dogs, located at 951 “C” Street. The producers were looking for a vintage theme to showcase their illustrative bikes. Harley Davidson has been a long standing motorcycle company known for innovation and attraction.

These are exciting times in Hayward as the City is receiving unprecedented requests for these types of activities. Anytime you can have a commercial or an ad filmed in your City, it increases exposure and places you on the map for future productions.Haywardis becoming a popular Bay Area destination for filming, which is aiding in our efforts of attracting even more of these productions. The City looks forward to increasing its filming presence and becoming a permanent destination for these types of activities.

    The folks who figure out how to get this done are brilliant. They should be in line for an award for getting this done.
