WATCH: Short Film Celebrates Literally Everything About Philadelphia

“Thanks Philly” will make you feel good about the city.

At first, we couldn’t decide if this short film celebrates Philadelphia, or is just a group of people enthusiastically reading the city’s Wikipedia entry. We’ve decided it’s the former.




This piece came from Bear Bear Pro, "a full service transmedia production house concentrated on creating and executing outside the box marketing campaigns." It should make a nice calling card for them.
