Invading German Army HQ Being Used For Commercials




Who would ever have imagined that the worlds most important campus that was going to be used by the invading German armies would end up being used for commercials.  Hundreds of millions of dollars spent on fancy buildings and immaculate grounds just to be used for commercials.

I can still see GTA strolling across the grounds, hair tousled, fly open...

Its pretty ironic that this was filmed there considering the child abuse that went on there, the rapes, sexual assaults and other issues.

Speaking of GTA and student dalliance, I wonder why none of those female students are testifying on these blogs about it? Too ashamed? ALL of them? I don't know...I heard there were literally hundreds of them.

The present owner of this property must be making alot of money from all the commercials filmed there. I bet Joe Jr. is kicking him self that he didn't think of this.

In response to Anon above:

Actually, Joe Jr. did rent the campus out for a variety of things once the college closed down.

Most notably was the filming of the movie "That Thing You Do" about a one hit wonder 1964 rock band, that starred Tom Hanks. The filming et al, occurred in 1996.

The campus is a good location in that it is just down the road from many studios, has privacy, open areas that are not all that common in Los Angeles County and easy freeway access.

I wonder about the students enjoyed by GTA too. I was a student there while he was having his fling with the airline stewardess. He did seem to chose the more self possessed and perhaps "sexy" girls. At that time I was very innocent and naive and perhaps almost a head taller that GTA, so I didn't catch his eye. But HWA liked the more innocent type girl -- I wouldn't say he was inappropriate in his behavior, but he was very friendly. As for GTA his behavior seemed close to the limit and strange even to me. Then we did hear that he had a weakness similar to that of many men of God, like David. So I do sometimes wonder why the former "girlfriends" did not spill the beans more. Did they get paid off and sign legal forms? The question here is not whether it happened (it did) but what happened to the women/girls?

That little lost kid is a metaphor of my own childhood. Too much of my youth was entirely misspent being lost on that campus. It's not that I couldn't find my mother, it's that my parents were just as lost as I was.
