The video is ok, but I don't get the :27 mark where it says "visit nice" and shows an abandoned building with broken windows. (I think it is the Burlington Postal annex) but I wouldn't highlight that building in a video, at least not until it is renovated.

LOL Is this a joke??? Visit Nebraska on your way to Denver because it's "just nice"? ! Maybe other people would see this and want to stop and spend their money, but in my opinion this looks to me like someone is making fun of Nebraska.

Yes, I thought it was a joke since it said "on the way to Denver" but I wasn't sure.

Not trying to disparage anybody on here, but how can anyone watch that video and not realize it's a parody the moment they scroll "New York: Mean" across the Manhattan skyline?

Actually, rewatching the video, the moment the Voice Over says, "not great, not horrible" -- within the first 10 seconds, that's your cue.

"The Good Life" is just one of those slogans that sticks, people like, it works, it makes sense, and I think that is "solid gold" as far as slogans go. It would be difficult to replace that, and come up with something better -- in my viewpoint. The "Possibilities...Endless..." can be thrown out, imo, because this is Nebraska, not Texas or California or Alaska (much bigger states, with varied landscapes & climates & geography & cities, ect), so it almost makes me roll my eyes and say "yeah...right." Don't get me wrong, I think so highly & well of my home state, but I don't feel the tourism possibilities are necessarily "endless" here, as much as they would seem other places.
"Crossroads Village" down the street from "Aksarben Village?" Does "Crossroads" have any meaning to people 20 and under? "Dodge At 72nd" is a type name I like better, drawing from the excitement of the iconic, special Omaha intersection. My $.02.
