WOODSTOCK, Ill. (WBBM NEWSRADIO) -- This Sunday isn't just game day, it's Groundhog Day. So it's only fitting the cast of the 1993 classic movie 'Groundhog Day' return to where it all began.

Bill Murray, his brother Brian Doyle-Murray and Stephen Tobolowsky returned to the original filming location of Woodstock last Saturday to shoot a super bowl commercial for Jeep. 

Rick Bellairs, a realtor and Chairman of Woodstock's Groundhog Day, was one of the few people who knew about the film crew and cast would be returning. 

"Most people didn't realize what was going down until the cameras and sets were being set up on Saturday morning," Bellairs said.

Bellairs said it's déjà vu to have Woodstock Square once again in the spotlight. 

"We're just tickled that our little town in the Chicago suburbs is going to be featured and seen at the Super Bowl, it doesn't get any bigger than that!" he said.

Jeep tweeted a few sneak peaks of the ad and from the looks of it..."it is gonna be a doozy." Watch the sneak peaks below (and them click repeat).
