While you're posted up, watching the Final Four this weekend, pay attention to the commercials. Minnesota makes a cameo in one of them.

Minnesota location scout Ann Healy Shapiro told GoMN a California production company was looking for a place to shoot a Coors Light commercial earlier this year.

Super Prime in Los Angeles had in mind a pond hockey rink in a small town setting. Initially, the company was planning on shooting in Denver.

But Healy Shapiro went out looking in Minnesota.

"I scouted our real pond hockey areas and also Wayzata’s Klapprich Park rink," she said. "Klapprich rink was so pretty," she added, noting everyone at Coors also really liked it.

So in January, a 70-person crew went out to film in Wayzata. The 30-second ad shows real Minnesota hockey players playing pond hockey.

The ad won't show until this weekend and there aren't a lot of details about it, but Healy Shapiro says it'll be similar to this Coors Light Commercial.

Minnesota's made a lot of appearances on the big screen lately. You can read more about those and the film process here.
