“They want classical music involved – that was just like ‘yes’ – they are going to let an orchestra in this commercial," Falletta told WBFO News. "I went to Hollywood and I spend three, crazy, frightening, confusing, glamorous, surreal days in what is the world of making a commercial. I think it’s an experience I will never forget."
