Paris for tourists vs. Paris for Parisians

Jump to last reply

The city of Paris recently started a controversy unexpectedly with its new promotional video to make every potential visitor fall in love with the city. While higher end tourists and people who fantasize about Paris even if they have never been here mostly liked the pretty images, at lot of Parisians (me included) did not at all feel that it was an authentic representation of the city. I think it is perhaps the product placement that annoyed me the most.

Here is that video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JnxDN5Bh4rA

So now a alternative video has been made by Parisians who feel that the city should be seen differently.

Here is the other video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e_M807HAe2c

Will this start a new "living like a local" discussion? :-)
