The scene was shot in a flower shop. The scenario Averin hero must choose the most beautiful bouquet, and then to turn around and leave, promising money for flowers to put on the next day. At this point, it should knock the guard outlets.

First drop on a special Mat was rehearsing a stunt man, dressed in precisely such garments as a hero Averin and in exactly the wig. And then Maxim could not resist and asked myself to play a trick in this episode. On the elbows and hips of the actor wearing protective pads. And after the command “Action!” Averin with all his strength very effectively collapsed on the tiled floor (a Mat would be visible in the frame). The reward the actor for his courage was cheering the whole team.
