Ad: Victoria, British Columbia

Check out this ad campaign for the city of Victoria, British Columbia...
To inspire Canadians from the inland city of Calgary, Alberta to visit the island city of Victoria, BC, we reminded them about what we have that they don’t… the ocean. We created humourous stories around three ocean creatures that are on the lam from Victoria, BC: Orland the orca, Sol the harbour seal and Simon the salmon. Stories lived online at www.tourismvictoria.com/calgaryand were pushed out through press releases and social media channels. Then we plastered Calgary with wanted posters, took out full page ads in the newspapers and put the call out on radio stations to spread our message; Tourism Victoria is looking for these creatures and we will reward consumers who find them with a chance to win a West Coast adventure trip for four to Victoria, BC. Our three creatures have been brought to life in the form of massive, impossible-to-miss 5 foot by 5 foot sidewalk sculptures and placed them around Calgary for consumers to find. Calgarians who spot one are encouraged to help spread the word by posting a picture on Tourism Victoria’s Facebook page (www.facebook.com/tourismvictoriafan) and we also set up a Twitter hash tag (#VicSeaPals) to help track their whereabouts until they are home safe. The campaign has just begun, but already we have over a thousand entries into the contest and the buzz on the street is its own reward!"

Longboarding With Team Original

Love this video, makes longboarding look like so much fun. Do they rent longboards? Are there areas to longboard here in BC? Gonna have to find out and finally give this sport a try. Until then I'll have to keep watching this video... Via - LikeCool By: Mass

Blogger Has Died

Dear friends, fans, and followers. For the past few months my blog has been overrun with errors, making changes very difficult (if not impossible). On numerous occasions I've attempted to reset my blogger template, install a new templates, and even restore from an older version but I'm still unable to add or remove specific content from my blogs template. The initial problematic area was the blog post section which refuses to accept any changes or alterations to the date, author, title or social media links. I have suffered through this problem, but as of late it appears that the layout is now no longer accepting changes, and when displayed is no longer centered. If anyone has suggestions on how to fix these blogger issues, please email me. As a result, I will no longer be updating, as its too difficult maintain this blog.

Duct Tape...It's Not Just For MacGyver Anymore

I came across this crazy site the other day called Duct Tape Fashion , which specializes in duct tape. Wait... I don't think I explained myself properly, there's a website dedicated to duct tape, and all things duct tape related. Ok, so maybe I did explain myself properly, WTF...really, duct tape. Well it seems duct tape isn't just for HVAC specialists and MacGyver anymore, it seems people are using duct tape to create all kinda of weird items like wallets, baseball caps, hats, bags, bracelets, purses, visors, and roses. Don't believe me, well check out some of these pics I got... Wallets Baseball Cap Hats Bags Bracelets Purses Visors Roses By: Mass
