Limestone County, Ala. (WHNT) – Alabama Shakes and Mercedes-Benz partnered together to shoot a commercial in the band’s hometown of Athens. Filming the commercial was a community event, and the Athens Police Department even helped out behind the scenes.
The commercial features the Grammy-nominated band playing “Makin’ Me Itch” to promote Mercedes-Benz’s new line of SUVs. Watch the video, and you may see some familiar sights from around Athens and Limestone County.
The Shakes will journey back to Alabama for the sold-out performance on October 11 for the Dinner in the Orchard at Isom’s Orchard.
