Blackpool, The New Paris? | The Daily Dust delivering the best bric a brac, daily news and events with a British flavour

Video to lure French visitors to the iconic seaside resort of Blackpool has been added to You Tube by Blackpool Council.

The video features a chic French girl and her fear of leaving Blackpool – the town she has fallen in love with.  Although the film was created to resemble Paris until the final scenes.

French blogger Sylvie Dixie said: “The video is very tongue-in-cheek and fun, however, the French won’t go for a copy of France.  What would seduce the French would be a video invitation to taste the UK’s delicacies.”

“The French are enticed by food and may not understand why an English Actress is playing the part of a French girl, the English accent is a big give away, and will probably only be noticed by…French people!”

Wonder if Blackpool council knew she wasn’t really French?!
