The creative process?

 While it is always good to see chess on TV, it isn't always done correctly. There is an ad on Australian TV which finishes with a checkmate (loudly announced), which is in fact correctly played, But the weird thing is the chess clock (and old fashioned BHB clock) is facing away from both players, towards the camera. I assume this was done for artistic  reasons, but it could just as well have been placed on the far side of the board. Maybe they tried that, but didn't like the result.
