2011 was apparently a pretty good year for Oklahoma City. In fact, it was so great that The Greater Oklahoma City Chamber of Commerce released an awkward two-minute long TV commercial to remind us about it:
I don't know about you, but I would bet some serious money that the everyone involved in the production of that commercial lives in Edmond. The only thing whiter than that thing is the lower level of a Thunder game.
Seriously, who approved this video? Captain Boredom? Also, isn't it time that Oklahoma City begins to act like we've been there before? "Yay!!! We got a Whole Foods!!!" Now just move on, park your Lexus, and go buy some overpriced organic foods with other boring white people.
Speaking of boring white people, what's up with the song? It sounds like something you'd hear at the end of service at Crossings church only a lot worse. The singers look like they just had dinner at Applebee's. I've heard better vocals at Nancy's Lighthouse on a Wednesday night.
Here are a few other thoughts:
• The video was produced by Boiling Point Media. I wonder if they bought Ackerman's Oklahoma City stock footage or just stole it from a dumpster in the Valliance Bank Building?
• The shot of the Bricktown Canal from the 15 - 20 second mark is funny. I especially like the random lady in the red dress watching over all the 40-year-old couples on first dates
• The Kevin Durant dunk at one-minute mark occurred in Dallas. Just sayin...
