Here’s the ‘Pittsburgh is Beautiful’ Commercial That’s Running in Times Square

The city celebrates its resurgence with a national ad campaign.



 

Instead of just smiling and blushing at the boatload of recognition the city has received of late, VisitPITTSBURGH put all that positive energy into producing a national ad campaign. The thought was, “Hey, if Esquire, Travel + Leisure and other outlets want to remark on how we’re a ‘hip’ destination, why not spread the word to others who aren’t in the know?” The promo’s currently running in the Big Apple, D.C., Philly and Toronto.
