SKY Movies chose Selsdon as the location to film its new TV advert last week.
Forty crew members from Rattling Stick Productions swarmed Kittiwake Close, Goldfinch Road and Peacock Gardens last Friday.
Councillor Sara Bashford said residents had been excited to see the crew film a scene involving a bus.
Reg Cartwright, of Elmfield Way, told the Advertiser: "It was pretty exciting to see all the crew and cameras just down the road.
"Selsdon isn't the kind of place you'd expect to see a film company, so I think people were more curious about what was going on instead of being annoyed the roads were closed off."
