The Assad Regime Publishes New Video To Promote Tourism

first published on August 31, 2016 by

The Assad Regime has enlisted the help of a new film production crew to try and boost tourism in Syria. I would like to remind you that this is not The Onion.

I am utterly beside myself right now. The video you are about to watch was published in August of 2016 by the Syrian Ministry of Tourism. The video, recorded by an aerial drone, shows people on jet skis and boats riding around on a beautiful bit of ocean having a great time. At the conclusion of the video, they end with their motto, “Syria, always beautiful,” and I’m not too sure that I can bring myself to believe them.

Once again, I would like to remind you that this is 100% real. What you are about to watch is expected to be taken seriously, and this article is not satire. On that note, who wants to plan a trip to Syria with me so we can go jet skiing?
