The buildings are probably owned by a production company.

What makes you think that? More likely they're simply abandoned in a ghost town and owned by either a bank or someone who just owns things

Sieh dir diesen Beitrag auf Instagram an

This non-descript building is, from what I'm told, and what a few fans have asked me to share, apparently the location of the first few scenes of the 'Today' video by SP. I wish I had more memories to share of that opening other than I can remember sitting on the ground reading the comic book and thinking it was going to be a hot day. The video, in whole, being budgeted for just a single day's shoot. So there was lots of running around and much in the way of improvisation. And I guess this is also where the kids came up and I gave away the ice cream. A conceptual idea that had come from my own childhood experience of meeting a rogue ice cream man, and of which I had to fight mightily (with the record company at the time) to get made. Thank God I won that argument, cause this video certainly changed the course of our lives and put a mark out of how we wanted to be viewed within our own ethos (IE and not like all the other kids) WPC

I also sent Billy the link to the Reddit thread and this comparison picture:




I don't understand why didn't mention the location of the building (Taft Hardware • Wilsons building located at 331 Center Street, Taft, CA, 93268).

Missed opportunity (fan pictures).


Well, the location was added to Wikipedia so that's good:
