Thanks Lou!   Smiley

This is one of the tunnels used in the Cadillac commercial I talked about that was shown during the Super Bowl.  It is about 12 miles from where I live on the highway to the coast.  Remember the one I said that was supposed to look like it was being shot out of a gun and had the bang and clink clank noise at the end?  Well, I said I would post a picture but couldn't figure it out, so Lou did it for me.

Here's to Lou, the King of picture posters!!!

I didn't see the commercial, but that is a neat looking tunnel.  We do not have tunnels where I live so that looks interesting to me.  It reminds me of those old cartoons about some character that walks or drives into a tunnel only to come firing out because a train or truck is hot on their heels.

OK, I guess I'm missing something here. What is the thing which appears to be coming out of the tunnel supposed to be, and what does it have to do with a Caddillac commercial? (looks like a ship, sort of, in my picture).

Dick, nothing is coming out of this tunnel now.  In the commercial that was shown during the Super Bowl, they used 3 tunnels and used a spinning motion to 'shoot' the caddi forward and with all the lights and spin details, it was supposed to give the impression the car was spinning through the barrel of a shotgun.  At the end of the commercial, someone said "Bang" and then there was a clink-clank noise like an empty shell hitting the asphalt.  Since part of the commercial was filmed near my home I thought I would take a picture of it and post it.  That's all....just sharing part of my country and it's beauty.

Hahahaha!  That's a good one, Roberta!  I actually sent mine to the eye doctor yesterday for his first glasses.  But seriously, in Dick's defense, when I first viewed the picture it took me a minute to figure out what was the tunnel.  It just sort of materializes out of the trees, which is kind of neat.   Smiley

Yeah, real funny, Roberta. It must be some kind of mirage or sumpin' like that.  :lol: I now see that the tunnel is lit up and what I thought was an object is really the inside of the tunnel. Sorry, Vivian. :oops:
