Mission’s Johnson Drive shows through in Kansas Lottery ‘Early Bird’ commercial


In late August we told you about the film crew and the actor in the chicken suit that were spending some time along Johnson Drive in Mission, reportedly filming a commercial for the Kansas Lottery.

We were wrong about the chicken suit. Apparently, that was an “Early Bird” suit and we just don’t know our fowl well enough. Even Early Bird suits stand out on Johnson Drive. We were right about the Kansas Lottery, though.

The 30-second commercial is now finished and airing. While some of the shots last mere seconds, it is easy to pick up a number of Johnson Drive or nearby locations in the background. Some of those include Town Topic, the closed Conoco – Valero convenience store, Mission Mart other spots around Mission.

The “Meet the Early Bird” promotion is touting the Holiday Millionaire Raffle tickets.
