Honestly, I almost missed #NationalNebraskaDay because, well, I've pretty much always missed Nebraska. 10 minutes ago I couldn't have honestly told you anything about #nebraska apart from it being the #cornhusker state and that it was located in the middle of the country, so I decided I'd read up on them in honor of their national day (marketing ploy effective.) I mean, if you google #nebraskatourism the first link that shows up is #VisitIdaho, which seems like a problem for both states, really.
But despite bad Search Engine Optimization I eventually found the Nebraska board of tourism webpage... And that's when I discovered the states tourism motto:
Nebraska. Honestly, Its not for everybody.
Genius. I mean, really well done, ye campaign manager whoever you are.
And they didn't stop there, no, they go all in on that, stating on their home page and I quote:
"We get it. Some people will write Nebraska off and never give it another thought. Or another chance. But we also know that there are enlightened truth-seekers out there willing to take the time to find out what makes our beautiful state so appealing, charming and disarming. Welcome enlightened truth-seekers!"
Disarming? Were people actively hostile toward Nebraska before or was it more of a rap-lyric kind of thing you were going for? And THEN if you keep scrolling the webpage says:
Nothing to see here. Except these things ... with a button that says "Find the things" and the things link includes floating in a river in some kind of livestock water bucket, a bunch of old Buicks stacked up in a henge, and a hiking canyon that looks like the moon.
