Kansans Shock Director Seeking Kansas Barn For National Commercial

By  | 

TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW)-- An internationally known production company is still looking for :That Right Location" featuring a barn in Kansas for a Coca-Cola commercial.

Zach Lowry, film director of New York-based Flex Collective, in an interview with WIBW admitted that he was surprised at how many responses they have already received.

Lowry said they had received over 4,000 emails offering a location with more coming in. They want to come to Kansas in May or June to shoot a Coke commercial.

The right location would be a weathered, wood barn, with a wood-shingled roof, next to or surrounded by a wheat field. The barn also has to be big enough for a 1965 Mustang to fit diagonally inside and have a ceiling 20 feet or higher and windows or side slits for light rays to show through.

Marci Penner, director of the Kansas Sampler Foundation, sent emails last week asking if anyone in Kansas might know of such a barn. So far, she's gotten more than 2,500 responses.
