The economy, as you may have heard, is great in North Dakota. It’s a great time to be a stripper in the Oil Patch, for example. But you can’t really make a tourism campaign out of that.
This week, North Dakota unveiled its 2012 tourism campaign, “Arrive a guest, leave a legend,” although this particular ad suggests another slogan might also fit.
“The direction of Arrive a guest. Leave a Legend. offers the idea that once visitors cross the border into North Dakota, everything and anything is possible,” the North Dakota Tourism press release says.
