Vancouver’s Dunsmuir and Granville Streets in Lexus commercial

Here’s something else I came across on streetfilms.org.  It’s a Lexus commercial, but it’s filmed in Vancouver at the intersection of Granville and Dunsmuir Streets.  It’s complete with the separated bike lane in the commercial.  Even though, as Streetfilms points out, there are cars travelling down the bike lane in the commercial.  There’s even one point where a car is going in the wrong direction down the bike lane.

I guess Lexus chose to showcase their new hybrid vehicle in a city like Vancouver that is aiming to be one of the “greenest” cities in the world.  It’s just fun to see my hometown in a TV commercial.
