Fun facts on The Hammer’s Super Bowl commercial

Who knew so much went into one commercial. Here are some fun facts about the production of this spot.

The commercial was shot at Fort Pike in New Orleans, LA. Fort Pike was built in 1819 to protect against invasion of the United States. The dragon has a name, Honey and is named after The Hammer’s dog. Honey was created in Kentucky, Louisiana and Paris, France.

It took about 110 cast and crew to pull off the production for this commercial. The 6’ 10” “Insurance Giant” actually played Bruiser in Ocean’s Eleven. This is the guy who punched George Clooney in the face during one of the scenes.
