Jewel City Photo: Trailer of People

It took me a minute to figure out this apparently gruesome tableaux as I approached from a distance.

The figures are actually mannequin "extras" being used in a Chrysler commercial. I have no idea how they were actually staged during filming (I initially thought they might have been used as an audience for something filming at the Alex), but a fake street cafe and newstand was set up on Milford between Brand and Maryland. I found a call sheet on the ground that only called for 10 flesh and blood extras. Did anyone see the actual filming? How were these guys used?

Keep your eyes open for a Chrysler commercial shot in downtown Glendale. Here are some more pictures taken by my co-pilot as we drove past:
