Sometimes it’s the little things that make your day. Today while tech scouting a location for a shoot tomorrow I had a pleasant surprise. The owner of the location had re-created a replica of a ’60’s juke joint in his own backyard. But not only that — everything in it was authentic; the bar stools, the juke box, the 45’s in the juke box and even the coke machine. But when I say everything… I mean everything. When we were about to wrap up, I was offered a dime for the coke machine. And what the coke machine delivered was an “original-recipe-cane sugar” Dr. Pepper…in an original 1960’s bottle. How cool is that? So, I kicked back, punched in Kodachrome by Paul Simon on the juke box and enjoyed my Dr. Pepper.
Unlike Marty McFly, I didn’t have to go back in time to get an original taste from the past. The little things can be very cool.
