Video Interlude: Wisconsin Welcomes with a Little 'Airplane!' Action

March 13, 2014 at 2:51 PM | by | ()

Thinking of where to go this spring and summer—how about Wisconsin? Okay, we understand that it might not have the appeal of the Caribbean or Europe, but their latest tourism campaign has put the state back on our radar.

Take a break from the cubicle this morning and watch the tourism board’s latest attempt at humor and getting visitors into the state. They do their best to do a little remake of Airplane! complete with Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and Robert Hays doing their thing.

We haven’t booked our trip to Madison or Wisconsin Dells just yet, but now we’re talking and thinking about it.

If you like their video the least you can do is surely spread the word using #TravelWI—and of course—don’t call them Shirley. Sorry, we couldn't resist!

As my home state, I can tell you WI does not get the love it deserves. Yes, the winters suck and every February I swear it'll be last in the midwest but I can never leave. Beer, cheese, various sausages, lakes (more than Minnesota), countless festivals (including the world's largest music festival), Brewers, Packers, Badgers, hiking, camping, well you get the idea.
