No orangutan

Generally, notifications of intention to film are dull reading, even the ones that promise explosions and weapons. But the Levi's film notice caught my eye because of the primate.

Models against scenery sitting on bus bench. Stationary picture bus in curb lane. Camera and equipment on street and sidewalk. One orangutan with trainer.

"One orangutan with trainer." Was that just any orangutan with trainer? I wondered. I thought great, my daughter would love to see the orangutan on a bus bench in her neighborhood. But then today -- orangutan day -- she went to preschool, and it turned out to be me who wanted to see the creature.
