Congratulations to Brand USA for creating an inclusive video to highlight travel in the United States. Established by Congress in the Travel Promotion Act of 2010, the agency was created to launch a global marketing effort to promote the United States as a travel destination. It has released a stunning new video that includes--albeit fleetingly--a gay couple among many ethnicities that constitute the American mosaic. Called "Land of Dreams," the video features Roseanne Cash singing an original song she wrote with John Leventhal.
The gay couple may be seen riding a New Orleans streetcar at 1:16 into the 2:23 minute video.
The ad is scheduled to run in the United Kingdom, Canada, and Japan.
