Rhode Iceland? State tourist video shows Iceland in error


On Tuesday, Rhode Island released a video online touting the benefits of the state. Only one problem though, they showed the Harpa in Reykjavik, Iceland. The video showed a skateboarder outside the Harpa, saying, “Imagine a place that feels like home but holds enough uniqueness that you’re never bored.”

People on social media recognized the concert hall and officials soon confirmed it was the Harpa and took the ad down. The mistake was blamed on a local editing company. The ad is being updated at no cost to the state.

The best part of every trip is realizing that it has upset your expectations
