What do Reston founder Bob Simon, a 5-year-old cow named Turtle and a crew of several dozen have in common?
They were all at Lake Anne Plaza on Tuesday for the filming of a television commercial.
The regional spot will air sometime later this year. The film crew asked Reston Now not say the name of the high-profile company, but its TV ads are known for being among the wittiest.
Simon, 101, sat through several takes in the sweltering heat. He said the wardrobe department even provided him with two new fisherman’s caps, his signature look.
The crew was also slated to film this week in Old Town Alexandria and in D.C.
