Tom Brady films commercial at West Beach in Beverly

---- — BEVERLY — Yes, that was Tom Brady walking his dog on West Beach today.

The New England Patriots quarterback was in Beverly to film a commercial for UGG boots.

Don MacQuarrie, vice president of the West Beach Corp., said Brady spent about six hours in Beverly Farms shooting the commercial, including scenes on West Beach with Brady's dog, Lua.

Rumors of Brady's appearance attracted a small crowd, but security kept everyone well away from the star quarterback, MacQuarrie said.

"It was pretty uneventful," he said.

MacQuarrie said the same production company that filmed the Larry David HBO movie "Clear History" in Beverly last year contacted the West Beach Corp. last month about filming the commercial with Brady on West Beach.
