Commuters passing through the main foyer of Harvard Square Station last Friday morning may have come across an unusual sight: A film shoot. Or something.
The MBTA was tight-lipped on the details, confirming that there was some kind of film production that was somehow related to the T, but declining to say whether it was a public service announcement or something else. Spokeswoman Kelly Smith said the finished product will debut in “a couple of weeks.”
For now, here’s what we know:
1. The video/commercial/feature-length film will include a plush, life-sized Charlie (of CharlieCard fame.)

2. There will be dancing MBTA employees.
3. Some people are really, really excited about it.
