North Dakota has a very interesting tourism campaign, this is one of the posters:
I would imagine these women are wearing a little more when walking around Fargo in January, where it is currently 11°.
Found via Twitter
And no doubt OTB’s most viewed story of the day.
Doug: Transparent parkas. Fargo was the test market. You’ll be able to buy them from L.L. Bean next season.
Victoria’s Secret is doing the summer version: transparent swimwear.
To be quite fair, the one on the right is pretty nice. Solid 7, but that’s a 9 in Fargo, and a 16 where I grew up in Saskatchewan.
I usually hate Doug’s threads but this is a good one.
North Dakota: come laugh at our men as they attempt to leer at you seductively.
I’m not sure that qualifies as “sex.” Maybe in North Dakota. Not in California.
North Dakota: We keep the men behind solid plexiglass so you can stand outside and laugh at them in safety
@Doug Mataconis: Sort of like that little girl and the lion, right?
@Christopher Bowen: Ahhh, are we to assume you guys do a lot of whaling up in Saskatchewan?
I think I’ll put this one in the “swimsuits and summer clothing go on sale in winter/parkas and long-sleeve shirts go on sale in July” category, Doug…
Or maybe it’s a psychology experiment to see which image is stronger–the “sexy girls!” or “bare legs and arms while there’s a howling blizzard outside.”
