    I blinked and i missed it but the 3 seconds I saw looked good (was on viva music channel).

    I saw the new logo etc but again the official website and other points dont have this new branding so it can confuse people.

    I am trying to find the ad on youtube also and cannot find it so you would think that it would be put on there also.

    I just saw the logo at the end and it did not seem to say for further information call x or go to x which did not seem like joined up thinking to me.

    Looked professional and I am not complaining.

    I don't think it's real, I think it's superimposed of photoshopped or whatever it is called when they combine two photos together.

    If you look at the pix of the Colloseum at El Djem, you can see the golf course (Monastir) in the arena.

    And I think the spa featured is possibly the Tamerza Palace Hotel although it states a spa in Tozeur.

    This video makes me wanna book a flight right now!

    However they have left out a few more treasures... Women lying on the beach...where are all the men cruising up and down planning their strategy of what to say 'nice tattoo' comes to mind or 'I saw you yesterday in my hotel' LOL. Wheres the intoxicating cigarette smoke filled cafes?

    Ok on a serious note, its not a bad looking video but really what does it say about the culture of the place? where are the locals in the video, traditional foods, dress and so on. Needs more of that. If it were not for the dessert that could just be some place in florida

    Think Mossy is right in that the actual ad isn't long enough....should have invested perhaps another 30 seconds to include a few more of the real gems and make a truly authentic ad....

    It's stunning Truly - was wishing I'd booked in there instead of staying in Nefta.

    I don't think so - I think it's quite neat they way they have done it - different slant on regular ads I suppose. TV advertising is so expensive - I tried it before 10K for a 30 second ad for one month - one enquiry - ouch!

    When are they showing the ads, what time of day and in between which programmes? That determines higher or lower cost also.

    Last night it was on Sky News during a break during the six o'clock news.
    Quite a prime time slot I would think.

    But at the second time of viewing it IS too short.
    Anybody who has not been to Tunisia is not going to notice any of the inconsistencies mentioned in other posts above but are going to wonder where to go for further information.
    As I said, compared to other tourist ads on TV it does not get the message across forcefully enough.
