Here’s a recent video from the San Francisco Travel Association promoting a place ensconced by majestic natural wonders and stunning architectural achievements, a recreational paradise with thriving cultural institutions, enticing ethnic neighborhoods, excellent mass transportation, delectable cuisine, and a bustling nightlife attractive yet unthreatening to all ages. With dogs.

That’s right, it’s a video about Norway….

Noooo! C’mon, ya cynics. Put the soundtrack to this on your MP3 player and play it while walking around town. And if the images aren’t necessarily travel-bureau ready, just…you know… edit them out with a lot of sustained blinking.

Plus, well, it really is a beautiful city…
