At 10 seconds in it appears the guy is fixing a Menards train station.
I saw that commercial and was pleased to see the layout .
One of our North Atlanta O Gauge Railroad Club members volunteered her layout for use filming a Gorilla Glue commercial late last year. Here is a link to the commercial.
Not my layout Lee; belongs to one of our club members.
Maybe Menards should send a few $ to the owner of the layout for the free publicity!
Great looking layout. Ask her to post more pics and maybe a video or two.
She does have a beautiful layout though – tons of very intricate detailing.
Congratulations I like that commercial and I’ll have to try out that new gorilla glue

“From consumer reaction and comments, we sensed that–unlike competitive products with industrial-sounding names that might put off the inexperienced DIYer–Gorilla was very approachable,” notes Matt Kemme , Vice President of Marketing and Innovation at The Gorilla Glue Company. “We want to give the brand a distinct persona, engaging consumers in advertising, across social media, and in-store, where Gorilla will capture consumer attention. The strategy: Build a big idea of who Gorilla is and what he can do, educating and giving consumers confidence across the DIY spectrum.”

CINCINNATI , Sept. 12, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — When The Gorilla Glue Company – which has been shaking up the retail market since it introduced its eponymous Gorilla Glue in 1999 – decided to make its first national television campaign, it decided to go big. Jim Boulden , creative director of Animal Makers, Inc., who made David Letterman’s bear suit and was involved in the making of the Aflac duck, created the lifelike gorilla costume. The creative was brought to life with the help of agency Possible. The spots were directed by Barton Landesman , who has won multiple Cannes Lions and One Show Pencils awards.

The incredibly realistic Gorilla Glue Gorilla will star in a series of TV spots designed to give do-it-yourselfers the confidence to tackle just about any project. In each spot, a DIYer struggles to complete a project using an inferior glue or tape. Gorilla shows up and offers the perfect solution – the right “Gorilla Tough” product – to which the DIYer sheepishly replies, “Gorilla Glue, of course.” In one spot, Gorilla offers Gorilla Glue to mend a broken fence gate, and in another, a homeowner tries to cover a broken window with a tarp that inferior tape just won’t hold to his brickwork. Again, the gorilla shows up with Gorilla Tape and a big dose of confidence, resulting in a double-thick stick to the bricks, a window well-protected from the coming rain, and a “grunt of approval” from Gorilla.

The debut commercials will run with 30-second spots on networks including HGTV, AMC, Animal Planet, DIY and Fox News, among others. The media campaign will be supported by extensive social media promotion, a PR campaign, and some surprising Gorilla-style guerilla tactics.
