There’s a new video from the Tybee Island Tourism Council promoting Tybee as a destination that’s relaxing, quirky, historical, a little wild — pretty much what I think of Tybee on its best days. Karl Strauch and Coastal Marketing Group were integral in producing the piece — Karl was also involved in creating the “My Savannah Is . . .” campaign a couple of years ago.
I wrote about Karl and that previous campaign here.
One friend pointed out that the newsy, fast-moving video might be a little heavy on Paula Deen, but she’s great here. And she’s the voice that tourists around the world will recognize.
Plus Paula has some great quotes, including: “I love low tide out at Tybee. And to be out there and to see the dolphins – it’s really such a spiritual place.”
Kurtis Schumm of the Tybee Island Social Club is among those interviewed. He delivers one the video’s money quotes as far as I’m concerned: “It’s a lot of really creative small businesses.” His partner Sarah Lanier compares Tybee nightlife to the bar scene in Star Wars. Indeed.
