20 Funny, Old School & Mildly Depressing Tourism Boards (VIDEO)

We've never found tourism ads particularly helpful in swaying our decision to travel somewhere. That said, it seems as though tourism boards pour a ton of money into making their respective destinations seem appealing.

Have a favorite commercial we haven't included? Send it to us!
