This Might be the Best Tourism Ad I've Ever Seen.

Not shown: The rainy season :)

By: Kyle Frost + Save to a List

I don't know about you, but I'm a huge Studio Ghibli fan. This new ad spot by Travel Oregon is obviously heavily influenced by the colorful and whimsical style of movies like Howl's Moving Castle, Princess Mononoke, and Spirited Away. Count me in! (The animation was actually done by the studio PSYOP)

It's an incredibly refreshing, beautiful and unconventional tourism ad. Give it a watch:
