Austin Tourism Video from 1987

Remember when Austin used to be better? Before unicycle riding hipsters, homeless cross dressers and weirdos moved here?

When you could get drunk and drive straight into Lady Bird Lake? When Stevie would play on a pallet fire on top of the Armadillo? When the downtown skyline was just a dusty central Texas haze (instead of filled with beautiful buildings and condo dwelling scenesters)?

Well, this might the video that ruined it all!

"Austin is like Paris!" Take a look at how A-town marketed itself to the growing tourism market back in 1987. This video, made for prospective tourists, gives a sizzle reel of footage from the cuisine to the music to the slacker lifestyle of the capital city. Original footage produced and directed by Ricardo Garz"
