Juliet Zulu, along with help from Brian Hall and Dmitri Von Klein, created, what is in essence, the perfect advertisement for the City of Portland for the AEPDX group. It’s young, fresh, exciting, open to possibilities; stylish people riding bikes!, great music. It’s all so continental. Seriously. This video makes me well up with tears for how much I love living in Portland.
Of course there’s also the stark reality of the city — like a poorly laid out public transportation system, lack of truly great pizza, playing the game “hipster or homeless” on a constant basis, an unemployment rate of about 10%, ad infinitum.
Still, it’s hard to complain because Portland truly is the best city in this country. [via]
