    This was either filmed inside a studio - or in South America during their winter - our summer.

    The print ads feature an actual photo of former Mount Washington Observatory intern Rick Giard chipping away at accumulated rime ice on an instrument, on a cold, windy, typical Mount Washington winter day. The ad states, in tongue-in-cheek manner, that L.L.Bean created their best jacket ever for the guy with the worst job ever.

    Did we ever let the cat out of the bag on where this was filmed?

    I still know, and nobody got it right yet. Assuming the insiders are willing to let me give up the secret.
