Montreal in a nutshell: poutine, surfing the St. Lawrence, festivals, art, fashion

Montreal, like every other heavily-touristed city, is generally depicted in stereotypical images. That's why I love this video that I discovered today: although it does actually show a few tired clichés - smoked meat sandwich at Schwartz's, anyone? - in this case it works because the photography is groovy, the editing too, and the more obvious Montreal is juxtaposed with images like a dude surfing the St. Lawrence river rapids.

Love it!

The vid was done by ad agency Sid Lee and I just can't figure out why it only got a measly 377 views on Youtube!
