WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — A 114-year-old barn in central Kansas is the setting for a new Coca-Cola commercialThe Wichita Eagle reports that the 59-second commercial has garnered thousands of views since it was released Monday afternoon. It shows a man and his grandson restoring a 1965 Ford Mustang in the weathered barn. Volunteers spent more than 500 hours reconstructing the interior of the barn to the specifics that New York City film director Zach Lowry needed. In February 2014, Lowry sought help finding a barn from the Kansas Sampler Foundation, whose mission is to preserve and sustain rural culture. More than 2,500 responses came pouring in. But the Dickinson County barn near Chapman was Lowry's favorite. Lowry called Kansas "wonderful" and said he'd "never experienced before such a whole collaborative process."
