Why, yes it appears that Cypress Park – along with Glassell Park and Mt. Washington – make a very brief appearance in a commercial for the new iPhone 5. Jorge Rosas snapped a screen shot (posted above) of the commercial now playing on YouTube. Looks like the brief scene – were are talking about three seconds – was shot from Elysian Park looking north.
“I grew up in Cypress Park, and yes I have an iPhone,” said Rosas via email. “It was nice to see the neighborhood on TV.”
