In an effort to boost foreign tourism to the USA the American Federal government is starting a $6 million advertising campaign in the UK this year (and $10 million next year in the UK and Japan) to try to promote the country.
The ads, created by M&C Saatchi, feature scenes from Hollywood movies such as Thelma & Louise, Chicago, L.A. Story and Maid in Manhattan. The print, TV and billboard campaign show US "location" shots and follow the theme "You've seen the film. Now visit the set."
