Tiger Falls gets full only in December and January. The team decided to shoot the ad at the same time, but the temperature would be very low during that time. The ad was to be shot under a waterfall in a temperature of 3 or 4 degree Celsius. The 20-minute musical track was already recorded. Lunel also had to go behind the waterfall to shoot the ad. During that time, he used to see snakes there many times. Lunel was afraid of snakes, but he was not afraid and gave the shot in one take.
