WATCH: Outtakes of Miss Richfield’s
Philly Tourism Ad
Last month, when the Greater Philadelphia Tourism Marketing Corp. (GPTMC) debuted its LGBT-focused travel ad starring Miss Richfield 1981, the commercial got mixed reviews. Some loved it, cackling as the big-bouffanted dame ran around Philly taking selfies at her favorite landmarks. Then there were the skeptics, who wondered why GPTMC used an out-of-town drag queen when Philly has SO many of its own to choose from.
Whatever your stance on the ad – which marks the 10th anniversary of GPTMC’s “Get your history straight and your nightlife gay” campaign — I think we can all agree that Miss Richfield is one funny bitch. That’s never more clear than in these outtakes that Visit Philly just released, where she cuts up with a Betsy Ross impersonator, rallies for shirtless joggers and rolls around like a mad woman on the steps of the Art Museum. Check it out above.
