Pure Michigan Singalong: How Many Places Have You Been?
Here's the video, filmed in part at Meadow Brook Hall and all over the state. It premiered during halftime of today's Detroit Lions home opener.
'We don't even have to try — it's always a good time."
That was the phrase performed again and again, from the dunes of Lake Michigan to Meadow Brook Hall in Rochester, during the filming of a Pure Michigan video that shows off the depth of tourist attractions in the state.
The video, filmed for Pure Michigan by Jeff Barrett and Rob Bliss of Status Creative, was filmed two weeks ago as part of a weeklong road trip to 50 tourist stops in Michigan.
"Meadow Brook Hall. Like something out of a movie," tweeted @BarrettAll, upon arriving in Rochester on a Wednesday morning last month for the filming.
The set in Rochester was a closed one; some of the stops, like one at the Detroit Zoo, were open to the public.
"They reached out to us, and they had a definite vision in mind," said Shannon O'Berski, marketing director of Meadow Brook Hall.
"They wanted us to have an elegant dinner party in our dining room. We found the talent, got the room ready and we sang one line of a song, which ended in a toast.
"We were very excited and honored to be a part of it.
"It's nice to be recognized as one of the attractions that are important to Michigan."
