I don't know if this was an actual campaign but it was funny to me.
I wasn't aware that L'Ville was the answer all along (no bashing from me).
Atlanta can be
saved.

Dallas needs help and more culture, call Louisville.
Boston
needs that Bluegrass muscle.
Ohio is begging for
support.
Los Angeles can't
play with Louisville.
The moral of this story is
this, you too New York.

Whoa, quick response. I just want let the citizens of Louisville know that I'm not dissing the city/people; it was something that made me smile while I was doing some research. I love Louisville.

Need one for DC and Northern VA too... here's an idea.

"This 20 yr old is sick of shootings and molestations every night on the local news,
is tired of being cut off every 2 min in traffic,
wants neighbors who actually talk to him,
is sick of concrete and graffiti, wants clean neighborhoods.

There is hope for him in Louisville. Help share Louisville."

Actually, i want Louisville kept on the DL. As John Witherspoon would say "Shh, dont tell nobody!"

Well Louisville is a great city. So it's possible I guess.

I always thought it was pronounced Louis ville. Not Louville.

I think the Dallas and LA ads were the best and of course I can laugh at my city because that's how a lot feel about our traffic. It wouldv'e been very funny if they switched Dallas with Houston, just to see the reaction.

People from Louisville/Kentucky say Lou-uh-vul or Lou-vul; people from elsewhere say Louis - ville.

I should start ones to "Share Scranton!" "Hey New Jerseyites. Sick of paying high taxes on overpriced homes to line the pockets of corrupt politicians whilst commuting thirty minutes to the grocery store in gridlock? There's hope for you! Come to Scranton, recently named amongst the nation's fastest-dying cities!"
