The Statue of Marketing

The Statue of Liberty is the perfect example of how the USA sure knows how to market its country and everything that is produced in it!

Not wanting to undermine the statue and its historical meaning, I must say that a first visit to this iconic construction can be quite disappointing. After watching so many movies that include aerial views of Lady Liberty, one expects its erection to be bigger and certainly more grandiose.

Perhaps my visual expectations were too high and definitely highly fed by Hollywood. But this just proves once again how the USA has that, sometimes amazing, sometimes irritating capacity, of taking anything, market the hell out of it and make the whole world want it!

    The Statue of Liberty is the ideal case of how the USA beyond any doubt knows how to market its nation and everything that is delivered in it!

    Not having any desire to undermine the statue and its recorded significance, I should say that a first visit to this notorious development can be entirely baffling. Subsequent to observing such a variety of films that incorporate flying perspectives of Lady Liberty, one anticipates that its erection will be greater and positively more self important.

    Maybe my visual desires were too high and unquestionably very nourished by Hollywood. In any case, this fair demonstrates by and by how the USA has that, occasionally astonishing, now and then chafing limit, of taking anything, market the damnation out of it and make the entire world need it!
