WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. - This afternoon it was "lights, camera, action" for West Lafayette Mayor John Dennis.
Mayor Dennis was an extra in the filming of a Jimmy John's commercial at the Wabash Landing. The mayor was on set at the mall for more than an hour.
He took cues from the crew and chatted with the other extras. He said he was surprised by how much effort can go into just one commercial.
"It's really mind boggling, most of these commercials are really only on for about 10 to 15 seconds. You really don't realize the work that goes into it," Mayor Dennis said.
The crew also shot scenes at a Jimmy John's location in Lafayette.
According to people on the set, the commercial will be distributed nationally in February 2014.
