  • On Thursday morning, Chelsea Productions, a New York production firm, began shooting a commercial for Chantix on Main Street, McPherson.
    Chantix is a prescription drug prescribed to aid people to stop smoking.
    The company was shooting street scenes at Kansas and Main streets, then further south down Main Street. Local police were in attendance but the street was not blocked off.
    Crew for the commercial were seen in both downtown coffee shops in the past couple of days, and The Well was being used as ground zero for the director and his staff.
    “I can’t tell you a lot, but I can tell you this,” a production assistant named Tiffany said. “Everyone here in your beautiful town has been so nice to us, and so accommodating.”
    The commercial is being shot here because a Chantix customer who is a success story lives here. The customer’s name was not provided.
    After filming and editing, the commercial for this nationally-known product may or may not be used.
