Was North Dakota's Axed Tourism Ad Really Racy? - Page 2
I’m sure other ads up for vote showed guys enjoying the variety of fishing sites, or skiing on North Dakota’s many slopes. By the way, the incredible fish awaiting all those fishermen coming to North Dakota shores? They spawn often. With complete strangers. That’s right, hook ‘em, reel them in, then hold them up and get a photo. You’ll be legendary.
North Dakota’s Tourism blog went on to state employees were bothered that the models appearing in the ad had been personally attacked in comments on Facebook and in the media articles surrounding the controversial ad. “These are beautiful, REAL people who we are proud to have represent North Dakota and the fun, downtown Fargo nightlife that they truly do enjoy,” said the Department blog of the models. “We apologize to them for the senseless and inappropriate things that people posted about them.”
From what I can see, the ad implies the potential for a couple of young men and young women having a chance meeting, sharing a few drinks, and enjoying each other’s company. This is an ad for North Dakota folks, not Las Vegas - everyone is fully clothed, and if you see a hint of possible sex in the air, here’s a thought:
Sex happens. In every state. It’s one of the reasons decent hotels change the sheets every day, why there are condom machines and dispensers spritzing Polo in night club restrooms, and no motel rooms appear to sell rooms with twin beds for those traveling alone.
For some tourists enjoying the sights and sounds of North Dakota who are really good at it, the sex is legendary.
Now get over it. After all, what goes on in Fargo stays in Fargo.
