Here's a video that the Nevada Development Authority has cooked up and sent over — a "flash mob dance" at Grauman's Chinese Theater, part of a promo campaign to steal away businesses from California. Other ads portray California legislators as as monkeys and flying pigs in lipstick. Their pitch: no corporate or personal income taxes in Sin City. Other than being absolutely cheesy, the ads remind me of my gratitude that I don't live in Las Vegas or anywhere near it.
