The director of an upcoming television commercial for Coca-Cola wants to shoot it in Kansas.

According Marci Penner, executive director of the Kansas Sampler Foundation, Zach Lowry is a New York City-based director wanting to come to Kansas to shoot a Coca-Cola commercial late May or June.

“They are seeking an old, vintage barn surrounded by wheat fields,” said Penner in a news release Thursday.

– Wooden barn (first choice red but can be any color or no paint)
– Probably wooden roof
– Weathered
– Located right beside or with wheat all around it
– Interior dimensions 30-by-30 feet or wide enough to fit a 1965 Mustang inside of the barn sitting at a diagonal
– Preferably ceilings of 20 feet or higher
– Windows and slits in the side of the barn for light rays to poke through

Anyone with access to such a Kansas barn is encouraged to get in contact with Lowry at or call (610) 710.5245.

“It would be great to send him pictures of the barn and proximity to or in the field, and the interior,” said Penner.

The mission of the Kansas Sampler Foundation is to help preserve and sustain rural culture.
