Shatner and his wife Elizabeth, an artist, noted horsewoman and philanthropist, are starring in a new VisitLEX 30-second commercial for social media platform, urging viewers to #sharethelex, as well as appearing in a broadcast TV commercial version that will run in cities surrounding Lexington and promoting the Bluegrass as a "must visit" tourism destination.
The Shatners maintain a strong presence in our region, with horses in Versailles and frequent visits to the Bluegrass throughout the year, despite their hectic schedule.
The commercials were produced by two Lexington-based creative houses….Cornett advertising, who launched the #sharethelex campaign earlier this year for VisitLEX with "tongue-in-cheek" Daniel Boone and Henry Clay videos on social media.
The Shatners installment was shot and edited in the studios of Post Time Productions using the very latest high-end Hollywood caliber equiptment .
ABC 36’s Doug High, who serves on Elizabeth Shatner’s Foundations Board for Equine Therapy for Veterans, brought the Shatners to the project, and produced and directed their new #sharethelex campaign, which is poised to bring even greater awareness around the country about all our city has to offer.
