There are a lot of great reasons to visit Columbus.
We’ve got some amazing sports teams, a lot of cool art, a variety of delectable ice cream options, and so much more. But back in the day, the city was looking for ways to boost tourism.
And back in the late 1970s, this song was apparently chosen to pull in visitors. I’ve heard a lot of catchy jingles in my day, but I can honestly say that I’ve now had this song stuck in my head for about a week and I’m genuinely not even mad about it.
Yes, it’s repetitive. But it has such a 1970s/Stephen Sondheim vibe that I can’t help but sing along. So without further ado, I present the 1979 promotional campaign commercial from the Columbus Chamber of Commerce, “Columbus- We’re Making It Great!”
I’m sorry for what I’ve just done to you. It’s just so damn catchy.
