The Online Community for Culver City – The New Scene
The actor is Tom Gurnee, but the real star of the new one-minute, national TV ad for Fidelity Life Insurance is downtown Culver CIty. In the commercial, a man walks distractedly out of Tender Greens (I believe):

Passes Ford's Filling Station
Passes the WWA Gallery
Then steps off the sidewalk directly into the path of an oncoming bus, with Culver Hotel and Pacific Theatres prominently in the background. Akasha, there on the left, has been re-dubbed Desmond's.
Fortunately (?), he survives his brush with death and ends up on the sidewalk in front of Akasha -- where he tells the person on the phone to remind him to buy life insurance.
