An HD time-lapsed video of Vancouver that we first posted on CityCaucus.com a few days ago has gone completely viral. A few days ago there were only 3000 or so views. Today, there are over 108,000 views and growing exponentially. With the eyes of the world about to focus on Vancouver, this video helps to remind locals of just how beautiful our city is.
For international travelers making plans to visit the city, it's a great way to get that Olympic spirit. Singer Linda Ganzini made an appearance on Global TV's Early News this morning to help explain what inspired her to work on the project. David and Dan Newcomb (twin brothers) actually filmed all the haunting shots of Vancouver by day and night. This YouTube video is now being sent around the world and it's a great postcard for Tourism Vancouver! And it didn't cost them a penny.
On a side note, our site crashed temporarily yesterday under the weight of so many visits after Global TV featured us on their supper hour newscast. The finally tally was 27,800 page views yesterday and growing daily. Thanks for spreading the word through Facebook and Twitter...it's helping to raise awareness of all the free events and venues around town!
