Here is a great video I found that shows Cincinnatis urban landscape really well! I remember when this song came out a few years ago. Good song and video. Shot from fountain square to Over-the-rhine to Clifton. Anyways enjoy.

I’ve never seen Parkour in Cincinnati before. Nicely produced and energizing. Thanks.

So that is Parkour. Learn something every day. I just thought it was some guy with a hot foot jumping around with a rock band. Glad I was told it was filmed in Cincinnati, as I never would have figured it out. Could have been told it was Cleveland, Detroit, Chicago, etc. and I would have said OK. When I went back and looked at it another time I did recognize a fleeting shot of the Genesis of Water fountain, but that was it. Obviously at my age the music does nothing for me, but whatever floats your boat.

You live less than 30 miles from Cincinnati and you had to watch it a second time to recognize the Tyler Davidson fountain??

And downtown Cincinnati doesn't look like the other three cities at all.

The shot of the fountain was so brief, yes it took me a second look to recognize it. So sue me, I am a little slow these days. But other than that I saw nothing in the course of the video which focused on any one subject area long enough for me to say Oh that is Cincinnati. So yes, they could have told me it was anywhere and I would have accepted it.

Please go back and give me a rundown of subjects I should have recognized immediately were specific to Cincinnati in the video if I was not told ahead of time it was shot here. Sorry if a few seconds shot of a fence just looks like a fence which could be anywhere. And I guess going back to the gal in the car was strictly Cincinnati.

I am not saying the video was bad, just not my genre. But to say it projected and was readily associated with the essence of Cincinnati, I will plead the Fifth.

The Tyler Davidson fountain was shown near the begining and near the end. I guess thats the main landmark. And it very much is a landmark that is very distinctively Cincinnati.

Also, the skyline does show the Carew Tower as one of the tallest building. Cincinnatis skyline doesn't have quite the iconic skyscrapers that Chicago has in the Sears/Hancock or Detroit with the Rennasaince center. I guess thats how you would know its not either of those.

Those shots of Over-the Rhine actually are very disinctive. There is no where in the midwest that has that kind of east coast architecture with the narrow streets and rowhouses like that. No, Chicago doesn't have that.

Its not a big deal really. I guess it wasn't iconic or anything. Rather, it simply had good shots of some of the cities historic architecture.

That's a kick ass song----yea pretty obvious from the Fountain that it was shot in Cincy. I also recognized Government Square and the Skywalk.

In the beginning the band is on top of the round pavilions at Bellvue Park in Clifton Heights.
