I see this medical ad for Otezla once in a while. Wonder if anyone recognizes where it is?

Austin, Texas. The Lamar street pedestrian bridge in front
with the Union Pacific across the Colorado River. I believe
it's a former MoPac line.
I haven't lost my mind, it's on tape backup here somewhere...

Verified with Google Street view. Very good. How did you know?

I follow Kirk Tuck's blog. He's a working photographer in
Austin and the scenes seemed like some of his 'around town'
pics on his site. (visualsciencelab.blogspot.com)

I bet this post was about the crew shooting the commercial

Nice find, thanks for putting that up.
Amazing how much time, money and people it takes to shoot a scene that only lasts a few seconds on the tv commercial.
Curious your picture I re posted here shows the crew on sort of a dolly shot at ground level. The commercial has an elevated shot possibly taken from the adjacent highway bridge. All very interesting.
EDIT: I just saw the tv spot again tonight. There are two shots at ground level moving in front of the actors, lasting a second or so each.
