Ezuma, Tiffany. Top 10 Must-Visit Cities around the World. watchmojo.com, 2014. http://watchmojo.com/video/id/13277. In this video scripted by Tiffany Ezuma, watchmojo.com exhibits the Top 10 Must-Visit Cities around the World by evaluating what spaces have the most exciting and enlightening attractions for tourists, and thus also advertising these environments. The video is directed towards individuals who are interested in international travel for leisure. Ezuma explains the grounds in which the cities are recognizable for their ability to attract visitors: “how beautiful they are, how fun they are and how much they have to offer tourists in the way of cuisine, must-see attractions and overall vibe.” The ten cities that are shown in the video are Berlin, Barcelona, Tokyo, Amsterdam, Rome, Istanbul, Shanghai, London, New York City, and Paris. From these cities, the watcher may notice the fact that most of them are western civilizations which implies that the experience economy is already well established within western areas of the world. In each description of the city, Ezuma mentions distinctive features of each space, and almost all of the descriptions are revolved around the idea of cultural history being intertwined within the modern city environment embellished with forms of entertainment—the same idea addressed in Gitte, Jensons, and Kiib’s “The Experience City: Planning of Hybrid Cultural Projects.” This video captures all the pleasing aspects of the societies to advertise tourism in order to inevitably give the environments an economic boost. This video functions as evidence to the idea of globalization and the experience economy.
