The background of a new delivery app commercial may look oddly familiar to Lakewood neighbors.

The opening scene of the 30-second commercial for Favor, an Austin-based delivery service, features a delivery man walking through the Lakewood Shopping Center with the Lakewood Theater in the background. The historic theater appears in the commercial just a few months after reopening as a bowling alley.

A closer look also shows the green awning at the Balcony Club and the corner of Mi Cocina.

The ad promos the new delivery service Favor, which  offers anything delivered in under an hour. Orders are placed through the app or website, and then self-employed couriers transport orders from stores to customers.

Favor has expanded to 50 cities across Texas.
