Vegas. Wow.

Just spent the past 24 hours in America’s Sin City – las vegas. My first visit here. What a strange place. Huge gambling factories filled with Americans (and foreigners) of every hue and tongue. But my favorite casino has to be “Paris France”. A Gallic-themed monstrosity straddled by a huge replica of the Eiffel Tower. Pictured below.

Going to the Retail Advertising awards tonight. Very excited. Meeting Faris Yakob for a drink later. A Googler told me he gave a great talk on social media yesterday. photo2

  1. Isn’t that Blackpool Tower?

  2. Ha! maybe in some spinal tap-esque blunder they accidentally replicated blackpool tower. but the truth is most visitors to the casino wouldn’t know the difference.

    it’s funny to see how the french motif doesn’t really lend itself to gambling allusions. not that it stopped them

  3. Maybe it’s crime inc’s homage to The Lavender Hill Mob? Where a bank clerk who oversees the shipment of bullion joins with an eccentric neighbor to steal gold bars and smuggle them out of the country as miniature Eifel Towers.
