    it seems like the volunteers simply reworked the old "Buffalo: Land of no Illusions" motif

    If that's so, maybe the owner of New Buffalo Graphics stands to make some money out of it...

    We should be able to come up with a better slogan than "For Real" - that makes no sense, like it could possibly not be for real? I like 'come see for yourself" b/c we tend to get a bad rap. You think that's so? Come see it for yourself.

    the more I think about this stupid slogan the more assinine it sounds. "For Real" is urban slang for "I am in complete agreement" now, think about it, when has Buffalo ever been in complete agreement? How about that Peace Brdige?

    Watch the narrative starting at about 3:50 of the video - Corny at best.

    The music and narrator makes Buffalo sound like a nursing home. Anyone in their 20's or 30's is going to avoid Buffalo like an STD

    At one point the narrator says "Buffalo survived against all odds"!!

    But not one mention of City Grill

    i agree. here's a place that loses population daily, that's for real.
    if anything, it should be Buffalo: For Sale.

    How about since Buffalo is ( for now) the 2nd biggest city in NYS...

    Incredible amount of potential in our area.

    I don't understand "buffalo for real"... and I live here... how is someone from Idaho gonna know what "buffalo for real" means? Wasn't there a slogan for Buffalo like "Where life works?" ...WORKS themselves to the bone with high property taxes..

    It'll rank right down there with the "talking proud" (apparently not about our eduction system though) campaign.
