"I passed through the seven levels of the Candy Cane forest, through the sea of swirly-twirly gum drops, and then I walked through the Lincoln Tunnel." During filming for Elf for the montage of Buddy venturing to New York City, several minor traffic accidents occurred when Will Ferrell walked through the Lincoln Tunnel in his costume. People were so surprised, and distracted from their driving, to see him wearing an elf outfit. In a 2013 interview with director Jon Favreau, he shared, “When we had Will in the Lincoln Tunnel, the tunnel was open. Same thing with the 59th Street Bridge. Whenever he was out there in his suit, we’d hear screeches and fender-benders and lights smashing.” .
