Thumbs up Kentucky attempting to entice Canadians!

In my recent issue of CAA (similar to the American AAA), I was surprised to find a few advertisements for Kentucky…thought it was ironic as TDIFest is being held here this year and I am contemplating on going…

Enjoy!

Since when has the CAA had a "Good Ad" in their publications? LOL

Anywho, with the Canadian $$ where it is and expected to be in this area for a while to come, I can't wait

Then this is extra good!




"Experience our unbridled spirit"
"Find the spirit online"

Just which 'spirits' do you think they mean?
They can't come right out and say "Leave the missus at home, come here and get drunk!" so they have to carefully choose euphemisms that say just that without actually saying just that.

Even the promotional listing is: History, history, bourbon, bourbon, bourbon, bourbon, and only then baseball, golf, horse racing, basketball, football.

Research has revealed that the other 49 states paid for the "Kentucky" ads in an attempt to lure the Canadians OUT of their own states and confine them to Kentucky.

Just Kidding, OK? LOL
