Edinburgh has unveiled its new tourist slogan: Incrediburgh. The locals call this new campaign, reportedly worth £300,000 "appalling." Edinburgh could have done far worse, though. Among catchy campaign like Malaysia: Truly Asia and Incredible India, there are always those disaster cases that never should have been funded. Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you: awful tourist campaigns of past and present.
Leavenworth, Washington: "He's a nut cracker, so bring on the nuts."
The faux-Bavarian village gets bad-ass...ish.
Panama: It Will Never Leave You
Cute idea-with a slogan that makes the country sound like a nasty parasite.
Denmark: Looking for Baby Daddy
This "viral" video campaign was so awful that Visit Denmark voluntarily pulled it off. Sorry, the Internet never forgets.
Australia: "Where the Bloody Hell Are You?"
Gorgeous pictures-too bad the cursing got the campaign promptly banned in the UK, rendering this $180 million production less than useful.
Israel: Size Doesn't Matter
Like a bad improv troupe, this cringe-inducing campaign takes a weak joke and keeps going.
