The typical tourism promotional videos are frequently boring and commonly generic. But, in 2013 Emerson Rapp and friends created a comedic video to promote tourism in Kansas City, by showing the “real” Kansas City. The resulting 1:45 video does an excellent job “selling” the city, while getting the viewer to laugh and listing places they want to visit. AND with well over 400,000 views, it is actually one of the best tourism marketing videos ever produced for Kansas City. Just goes to show how a comedy sketch can actually increase tourism spending and enhance the “coolness” of a city.
