S What is the New Orleans restuarant in the new Visa commercial?
I saw a Visa commerical during a football game of local New Orleans restuarants and fans. One restuarant was serving up crawfish in wooden boxes. Does anyone know what restuarant that was?

I saw the commercial too and could not tell where all the location were but here is some background on it. And a link to the commercial.

National Advertising

Visa’s national television commercial will launch on September 6 during the NFL season Kickoff Game, featuring the New Orleans Saints vs. Indianapolis Colts on NBC. This spot demonstrates how Visa helps football fans get the most out of their game day experience by highlighting the many ways and places to pay with Visa.

The commercial follows New Orleans Saints fans as they use their Visa card for everything they need to watch their favorite team on Sunday – from buying crawfish for a tailgate party, to paying for a Saints themed haircut, to making some last minute game-day wardrobe purchases. This “perfect” game day comes to an abrupt halt when one person tries to pay with cash and disrupts the efficiency and harmony of the payment line. The spot includes New Orleans Saints players, including Drew Brees, Reggie Bush, and Deuce McAllister, pumping themselves up in the tunnel of the SuperDome and running onto the field.

“We want NFL fans to know that Visa can help them get the most out of their NFL experience,” said Michael Lynch, SVP Visa USA. “The NFL spot allows us to emphasize the efficiency and speed of making everyday purchases with a Visa card over cash or checks.”

Lynch added, “In addition to reinforcing acceptance, speed and convenience benefits, the spot also aims to celebrate the spirit of New Orleans and the many things Saints fans and NFL fans everywhere do to get ready for game day.”

The commercial is set to Louis Armstrong’s “When the Saints Go Marching In.” To view the spot, please visit
