Yeesh - that is as bad as all those horrific Microsoft internal videos that leak out from time to time.

The images of the city are great, but boy did they ruin that video with that dancing. For a city that prides itself on image, this is just awful. BTW, glad to see Dean Fearing in the video, minus the danceing. His spot is not only the best restaruant in DFW, but one of the best places I've eaten in the U.S.

What is the entrance to Six Flags doing in that video? And doesn't Pat Green live in Fort Worth?

Not just the entrance to Six Flags... they show a rollercoaster, The Ballpark in Arlington and Cowboys Stadium. Not even in the same county. Surprised they didn't throw the Fort Worth Zoo and Sundance Square in too.

I just re-watched it, and had noticed that. With all the TV news about the restraunts & bars that closed at Victory, I wonder why they chose to only mention Ghostbar with that shot. Is that place that much of a ghost town unless the Mavs and Stars are playing?

I'm not gonna fault Dallas for showing attractions not in the city. DFW is a region and to get the total feel of the area, you're going to have to go to other cities and/or counties. Fort Worth claims Six Flags and sports attractions ( although it has no pro sports franchise) in its literature too. And Dallas is not the only city that has a sports team that has its arena outside of its namesake city. Make no mistake, although we know the DALLAS Cowboys play in Arlington, the vast majority of the country believe they play in Dallas. I do own a house and condo in Dallas, and still consider it and Fort Worth wonderful cities, and I'm not gonna act shocked that municipalities stretch the truth in promotional videos...all cities do it.

You guys must have shamed Dallas into pulling the video off of You Tube. I was at Abacus for dinner tonight and Chef Kent Rathbun was at the table and I told him he beat out Dean Fearing on the dancing and he asked where I had seen the video. Of course, I told him the Fort Worth Forum. smile.gif
