    Nebraska's Brutally Honest New Tourism Slogan Is Perfect

    The new campaign, which hit "key out-of-state markets" in spring 2019, uses a little self-deprecating humor in an attempt to get more visitors to a state that's consistently ranked 50th on lists of states people want to visit. Some of the ads feature tag lines that echo common phrases associated with the state: "there's nothing to do here" and "famous for our flat, boring landscape" over images of people "tanking" or floating down a river in livestock tanks, and hikers traversing Toadstool Geologic Park. It's all the work of advertising agency Vladimir Jones.
