  • Alternative State Ad Slogans

       June 23, 2011

    With summer finally here, I've been seeing a lot of state-specific tourism ads. The taglines of these ads just kill me. I saw one for Illinois the other day that said "Mile after Magnificent Mile". Whatever, Illinois. Colorado's ads say "In a place called Colorado". That's accurate, but not exactly descriptive.

    I think it's time for accuracy and descriptiveness in tourism, so I'd like to propose the following slogans:

    Alabama: There's A Band Named After Us!
    Arizona: The Immigrants Did It
    Delaware: Who Knew?
    Hawaii Want A Birth Certificate?
    Indiana: It Takes Way Longer To Drive Through Than You Thought, Huh?
    Minnesota: Passive Aggressive Since 1858
    New Jersey: America's Dumpster
    North Dakota: No, The Other One
    Oregon: That's Not Skunk You Smell
    Vermont: We've Got Ice Cream

    So that's just a few off of the top of my head. Hopefully we can think of more, because the rest of the states sure need some help.
