They play all the time here in Northern MN. If I hadn't of moved to MN and found what real true untouched by money beauty really is, I might be impressed. I moved here from Michigan when everyone got so greedy with what they wanted for useless land.

I like the golf one. Wonder if that's Boyne? Sure looks like it.

In an age of in-your-face advertising where technology goes wild and being hit over the head with a hammer (at 20,000 decibils), Pure Michigan is literally a breath of fresh air (no pun intended since that basically is what the content is about).

BTW, it is absolutely brilliant how the commercials go to great length not to make "Pure Michigan" a place, but keep it an idea, a concept, a feeling. If you notice, it will not once ask you to visit a place called "Pure Michigan" but it will ask you have an experience that is "Pure Michigan".

What a shame Michael Jackson's death couldn't have been handled more like Michigan's tourism.

This Spring when the Michigan ads started playing in New Mexico, my friends there were so shocked to see that MI is a beautiful place (just like I'd been TRYING to tell them). These images, and the recognition of what a special place MI is, are long, long overdue.

I keep hearing that on these forums myself.

For whatever reason, I have friends (and even family members) who have never seen parts of the state highlighted in those ads.

I think it's great that they air them here in Michigan too... I've told people countless times how great we have it here in terms of recreation and they don't all believe me. When Tim Allen tells them, for some reason, it carries more weight.

I watched the link someone posted, as I never watch TV that isn't TIVO'd anymore. I've heard the commercials on the radio, but never seen it before.

I think what I liked best was that I knew where every image came from. I guess I know Pure Michigan. And am happy that I do!

Wow, Yac.

Anyhoo, the golf ads look like Boyne. Anyone agree?

Was in Maui/Kauai for two weeks in June. Weather is nice, scenery quite spectacular...it's a nice place to VISIT but I kept thinking that Michigan is a great place to LIVE. Went up north for the Fourth a week after returning from "Paradise" and, while up there, not once was wishing I was back in Hawaii. Yeah, the clouds in Michigan tend to linger a little longer than Hawaii (it isn't ALWAYS sunshine on the islands) but we have some great natural resources of our own and, when the sun shines, we have our own Paradise (and less people).
