The Selling of... Denmark
Apropos of today's show about the branding of Oregon, I chanced upon this story in the news this week. Apparently the Danish tourism board thought that a fake video of an attractive young woman seeking a guy she'd had a one night stand with — and who fathered her one-and-a-half year-old — would be a good way to attract visitors to the country. It sure makes our "cuisinterships" look tame, huh?
Here's the ad:
Well, it looks like TravelDenmark really doesn't want you to watch the video. They've now removed two different YouTube versions.
