Detroit Free Press has a fun article on how romney is going to fake looking like he's talking to a filled stadium

It won't be hard to fit 1,200 members of the Detroit Economic Club into 65,000-seat Ford Field for today's speech by GOP presidential hopeful Mitt Romney.

What will be hard is making it look like Romney isn't speaking to a nearly empty stadium.

The Romney campaign and the Economic Club think they've solved the problem. The guests will be seated at one end of the playing surface, roughly between the end zone and the 30-yard line, while Romney will speak from a stage in front of them.




Steve Grigorian, chief operating officer for the Economic Club, said the two earlier Ford Field plans were changed because camera angles would have made it appear there was no one in the stadium but Romney.

My guess is they may splice it up for an ad. Using crowd shots, with him in the stadium.
