No More Mr. Nice Guy.
Our neighboring state to the west announced Wednesday a “Nebraska Nice” tourism brand.
“We set out to find a message that would resonate with Nebraskans and will very quickly communicate Nebraska’s strengths to potential visitors,’’ Nebraska Tourism Commission Director Kathy McKillip told the Omaha World-Herald.
But our state already has Iowa Nice typified by ESPN contributor Scott Siepker. And he wasn’t happy with the competition. “This means war,” the Iowa Nice Guy wrote on Twitter.
It took the commission nine months to come up with the slogan.
