This Is The Best Place On Earth - Vancouver 2010 Olympics New Ad
Every year, the Vancouver Tourism Bureau (www.HelloBC.com) puts out a really frustrating series of ads designed to increase tourism in B.C. Like we need it.
If you want to see for yourself. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_MFjKqy5-Jw
They portray young, healthy, beautiful people with surfboards, eating fine cuisine, getting massages and shopping in really fancy stores.
So, I thought it might be a good idea to portray the "Real B.C.". The other side of the equation. Granted, we have Stanley Park, Whistler, English Bay, Jerico Beach. We also have the Downtown Eastside and a host of poor suburban areas that I can't seem to glimpse in these ridicules ads. To paraphrase Mahatma Ghandi "A civilization is only as strong as it's weakest link.
BTW - the website therealbc.com doesn't exist. It is just there to rebuke hellobc.com.
