When in Doubt, Take Pictures of Cowboys and Cacti

Posted By on Thu, Nov 18, 2010 at 3:40 PM

A few days after a scolding from the Pima County Board of Supervisors, the Metropolitan Tucson Convention and Visitors Bureau rolled out a new promotional campaign. Coincidence? I can't say, but as a special preview to their Facebook fans, they unveiled three ads today that focus on a relatively tired view of town.

Congratulations, Visitors Bureau. You've reinforced the idea that we don't have paved roads here. and that Tucsonans spend their days dodging cacti on horseback. Way to go.

While it also shows a somewhat cliched view of the area, maybe we should just use the recent National Geographic web video featuring Calexico. At least it showed Little Poca Cosa.
