City Needs Some Really Good Friends

The Friend of Lou campaign is back at attempting to get attention with a new burst of publicity in an attempt to sign up 20,000 Friends of Lou this month. They’ve got Louisville’s B-List of celebs involved — Southern Belle Emily Gimmel, Darryl Isaac (???), Patti Swope and Terry Meiners are among those involved.

The campaign put together this video as a sign of things to come.

All this is paid for by the Greater Louisville Branding Project (remember those videos diss-ing Boston, Atlanta and Dallas), which consists of GLI, the Convention and Visitors Bureau, local businesses and, yes, Metro Government.

If you sign up, you might get some cool stuff in the mail. Tell ’em the ‘Ville Voice sent you.
