10 Hilarious Tourism Ads

I love the internet. Not just for its vast expanse of information, but also because it never lets you forget anything. All those old photos of you are lurking out there somewhere, ready to horrify you as soon as you spot them. You can’t escape your past on the internet, even if you’re a government run tourism board for some of the most popular vacation destinations in the world. Why would we let these places forget their marketing missteps and/or genius when they're worth so hearty a laugh? We won’t! Here are ten hilarious tourism ads you’re going to want to share with your friends:

This half hour piece from Calgary makes several attempts to get a snicker out of you. I think it flops, but it’ll certainly take you back in time.

I’m still waiting for Bob Newhart to come crawling out of this one from Chicago:

In this piece from Australia, Paul Hogan wants to throw another extra shrimp on the barbie for ya. (Australian Editor's note: these are called prawns in Australia!)
