The city of Greenfield, Mass., was featured in a three-minute segment on Quaid’s show that featured aerial views of the city, footage of the county fair and interviews with local business owners and city leaders. Two videos were ultimately produced, including a one-minute “commercial” touting the locale.

“They both came out great,” Roxann Wedegartner, Greenfield’s mayor, told a reporter from the Greenfield Recorder in a March 2022 article, referencing both videos. “I’m looking forward to being able to use them as part of a marketing campaign for Greenfield over the next year or so. I do think they showcase us nicely.”

The city reportedly paid $27,900 for the project, including the one-minute commercial that was designed to be included in a promotion package for recruiting a new local community college president. 

It’s unclear how much O’Leary is paying for the production.
