Dallas Is ‘Bigger Than Ever,’ in Convention and Visitors Bureau’s New Ad

This newly posted ad by the Dallas Convention and Visitors Bureau starts out with the cliche images of wide open spaces, cattle, and dudes in cowboy hats, and I thought “OK, fine, the CVB has to sell the cartoon image of the city to the world, I guess.”

But then it takes a turn, and I have to say, I’m usually immune to such manipulative pleas for civic pride, but it got me pretty pumped about living here. Nicely done.

UPDATE: But, no, I don’t believe the roving B and G campaign has “reignited residents’ passion for our city,” as this other new video claims.
