How cool is Quincy, the town voted the coolest small town in the West? Ice cold. The England-based company Wall’s apparently thinks so, at least. The European ice cream company set a crew up in Quincy on April 11 to film a commercial to be aired online later this month.

The company coordinated with the San Francisco branch of DDB Worldwide Communications Group Inc., a global advertising firm. Some members of the firm saw Quincy on Yahoo late last year, voted as one of the coolest small towns in America, and thought it would be a great location to film.

“It’s such a cute, quaint, small town,” explained DDB’s Danielle Watchman on its choice of location. “We really liked the look of it. We thought it would be a nice fit for what we are going for.”
