New Orleans Tells Chicago It's the Windier City


We suppose since a New Orleans entity created and placed this board on their own in Chicago claiming its famed status as the "windier city," it makes it all OK. Apparently the old adage holds true. Poking fun at your own misery is cool. Poking fun at other's ain't. All of those cultural/political/behavioral rules aside, this is a succinctly strong and powerful advertising message.

Why didn't they just put up a board with "The Murder City" It's the current image they have, it's in the press every day.

The campaign is suprisingly good for anything Trumpet has done of late, all things considering. Good work dudes.

Chicago is actually called the Windy City because of all the hot air that comes out of our politicians. So Washington D.C. should be claiming that title.

Very true, Someguy, but that truth takes the fun out of the ad:-)

Hard to believe, but it makes me want to never go to NOLA even more.
