    I get a whole lot of media, announcements, press releases, etc. in my inbox.

    A large number of the videos are this or that crappy trailer or clip for a crappy new movie. A few are good, but most don't make me want to see the movie, or visit the mountain, or whatever.

    Some tourism organization for Canada sent around a clip that they commissioned. As I watched it, all I could think of were all the terrible "visit Michigan" or "come to North Carolina" or "vacation in California" ads I see on TV, and how not one ever made me want to travel... so I'm somewhat impressed that someone took the time to do a specialized clip just for bikers.

    Shot by Silvia Films and some of their other clips are pretty good.

    I'd say the client got their money's worth.

    Of course, riding in BC pretty much sells itself.
