Surely Hillary and Bill can come up with a similar video for America! Without the fried egg, just carrot sticks...
That one woman clearly had her "onion ring" expression on.
Just another ad trying to sell a product, every film commission does it at some point. Most tend to focus on geographic localities rather than ones that are physical.
tacky, very tacky
Thanks for noticing (and the link), Ann! I forgot to link the Sunday Times article on the video. Highlights:The video is part of a campaign by Margot Wallstrom, the communications commissioner, to boost interest in the workings of the EU....These clips explain better what the EU is doing....We can’t really compete with Paris Hilton yet...Apparently, the Poles protested. Perhaps they didi not like how they were portrayed.
Ah, yes. The wonder of European culture. Good thing it's unspoiled by the crassness of American cinema and culture.
Ron said......just carrot sticks...Yes Ron, but not the ones that don't need to be washed and peeled. Those could be inappropriate and lead to gender confusion.
All they could think of was to steal the opening of the film Amélie?
From her blog:It was an almost heavenly experience yesterday evening: to all of us (around 2000 people) in the beautiful church of Leksand, Dalarna. Swedish summer, poems by Tomas Tranströmer, singing by Barbara Hendricks and Mikael Samuelson, local choirs and a young Croatian girl with a golden voice. I had been given the task to talk about hope in the context of climate change. Because in times like this we need hope and I actually believe there is more hope now than ever before since we have the know-how, the technology and the economy to change.Ahhh....such purity, such inspirational words, such elevation..... Who woudda thunk.
Now what did that ad accomplish? Is America threatening their cinematic content that much? Although, I am sure that our exports there are more action/adventure than...ummm...that genre.
I think it was meant as "feel good" bit of fluff, Galvanized. Obviously, more than a few were feeling good by the end of it. ;-)
I'm surprised that the French didn't insist that the captions be done in French :)they are such prigs about it.
Wow. Are they comparing European films to standard adult theater fare? Or encouraging "cinema lovers" to be more literal when they "come together" to enjoy films? Will the EU subsidize janitorial costs? Speaking of onion rings and "O-faces", this is pretty funny. Even Kirk Cameron is uncomfortable. (Note: humans domesticated bananas from a rather unfriendly [and less phallic] fruit, just as they did with wheat, cows, pig, sheep, corn, etc...)
