PORTAGE PARK — A commercial for the video game Fortnite will be filmed in a barbershop on Tuesday.

The permit filed with the city says no parking will be allowed on the north side of Irving Park Road, from North Lamon Avenue to 4819 W. Irving Park Rd., starting at 6 a.m. on Tuesday. These restrictions will be in effect until 6 p.m.

Fortnite uses both first person shooter and survival gameplay to have players to fend off zombie-like creatures by building fortifications they defend. The permit information says the commercial being filmed this week is in conjunction with Samsung.
