Update: A jeep drives through a river with snowy banks in downtown Vancouver Saturday after a few days of setup on the closed 400 block of Granville Street.

For the last few days, crew have been setting up for a [weekend] shoot of a [Jeep] commercial in what-will-be-a-river running down the closed 400 block of Granville Street downtown dressed as a Winter Wonderland, with real flowing water, stones for the river bed, fake boulders and snow-covered trees. Is this the wildest downtown Vancouver set ever? Why create a river flowing through downtown office buildings? And why drive a [Jeep] through it? Meantime, passersby have fun posing with fake boulders. [Update: on Sunday a wolf and goat are expected on set].
Stones for river bed.
Water for fake river.
Winter wonderland of trees line both sides of the street.
The set has not gone unnoticed on Instagram.
