As a former ad exec and retired tourism marketer I could not agree more, but I do have the words to describe the spot, just can't use them here...

On behalf of the denizens looking on at work, thank you for your restraint. But, hit me up offline sometime. I need some new bad words. Mine are getting stale ;)

When it comes to using humor in tourism ads or any ads for that matter, you have to be very, very careful. After you've seen/heard the joke the first time, what's the engagement after that? What's the link to the product? Or is it just a cute line? And the biggest risk: is it even funny or relevant? Sadly, most attempts fail spectacularly.
