One Youtube video to represent where you live.

If you had to pick a single Youtube (or other online) video to represent your hometown or current base to the world at large, which one would you pick?

Me, I'd pick this one.

This video actually wrecked me because I'm planning to move my family to another province* July 1st, and it makes me question my sanity.

So, show me where you live.

*I reassure myself that we're moving the place they picked for a lot of the location shots in Brokeback Mountain, and will probably only do a few years there before settling in Québec City, which is no slouch in the scenery department.

There are many, but Nashville is... gives a sense of the variety of the place.

I was going to post videos of the city in summer or one that Marimekko took when they flew a Unikko-patterned hot air balloon over Helsinki, but you know, I think this sums up something about Finland (and Helsinki) even better:

The ice hockey world championships are currently on, by the way. This could happen again next Sunday.

This is the top hit for Indianapolis. A little too Chamber of Commerce-y, but it's good, especially the time lapse of Super Bowl Village at the end.

The resort industry has a good one showing some of the good that we have over here, Phoenix is really more interesting than just bad items like Arpaio.

Do not miss the "tamale lady" at 3:11
