I like the F-150 commercials in Texas that show the trucks driving the highways in China. Real Texan...

LoL, umm.......you do realize that these days, large corporations will film and insert multiple city skylines depending on where the commercials are played.

McDonalds, banks, all the cellphone commercials, car commercials, etc. etc. - a large majority of them that actually show an outside shot show Chicago when I watch TV. I never see LA or anything else.

I think you're assuming since you see the car commercials and all other commercials, we all see them. I see Chicago, others probably see some default version, or the version of the closest city they based the commercial around.

Most commercials just show inside shots though, or very "basic" outside shots where it might be LA, but could honestly just pass for any suburban area in the country.

Don't tell me otherwise because I'm a goo goo gah gah and you'll have to change my diaper. I'm going to brag like I'm 8 yrs old on the playground. So hmph.
What about car commercials in small towns - or the Suzuki commercials I've seen in old saloons? Ford commercials cater to regions, as do other American Car Manufacturers. What about stores like Tractor Supply Co? See? There are other areas that have commercials filmed in their area too. It's okay, you just have to share the commericials little buddy.

Heck, I live in Birmingham, and I'm amazed at how many national spots get made here. In fact, I was once in Seattle on business, and was watching the local news before dinner, and saw three straight car dealership commercials that used Birmingham settings and Birmingham on-camera talent.
well i guess so its just i hardly seem them.

New York might have LA beat with television.

Anyways, I don't give a rat's behind where the f**k commercials are shot. I hate them, I hate watching them, most advertise products that I couldn't give two s**ts about and if they are ALL shot in LA as the OP claims, then in my opinion that is one more reason for that pile to fall into the ocean.

By the way, where I live a lot of commercials are in regards to local business. I seriously doubt that they hired out an LA studio to film a Prompto commercial
