If you have been watching the Blue Jays on television recently, you may have seen a very familiar backdrop in a commercial that is currently running on sports programming across the country. If you guessed Cockshutt Park, you are correct!
The 30 second commercial called “A Tall Cold One” was developed by the Dairy Farmers of Canada to promote the refreshing taste of milk. The ad features a competitive baseball game among friends on the ball diamond at Cockshutt Park. Earlier this spring, the Dairy Farmers organization approached the City’s Director of Parks, Brian Hughes, to seek permission to use the facility because of the impeccable condition and quality of the diamond. The commercial was filmed entirely at the George Henry Field in Cockshutt Park.
Not to be outdone, Brantford Municipal Airport joins the growing list of City facilities that have been featured in recent national advertising campaigns. Jaguar Canada marked the 150th anniversary of Canada in an appropriately dramatic fashion with a campaign to promote the 575 hp supercharged Jaguar F-TYPE SVR. The commercial was filmed entirely at the Brantford Municipal Airport earlier this year.
Jaguar described the campaign as a way to honour Canada’s milestone with style saying, “In addition to sharing our British values and traditions, Canada also appreciates a flair for the dramatic. So it would seem only fitting for us to celebrate Canada 150 with an event that could literally be the icing on the cake—a 575 hp supercharged Jaguar F-TYPE-SVR blowing out birthday candles in its honour”
