“Kiss and Tell” is a 3 minute video produced to promote Palm Springs that, if you watch closely, may involve money laundering, baby making, and teleportation.
The video, produced by The Greater Palm Springs Convention and Visitors Bureau, was created to highlight nightlife in The Coachella Valley (locals, you may want to take a few minutes to stop laughing your ass off about the “nightlife in the valley”). The Desert Sun said the settings in the video “are as beautiful as the actors in the film” – but I say, there is some crazy shit going on.
If you have yet to see the video, watch it here. Those who have may skip to the review below.
And now on to the recap…
Oh, an “international traveler” you say. Perhaps as an awkward way of promoting that Palm Springs has an international airport? Or is there something else going on here?
First stop Fantasy Springs Casino (so conveniently located at the furthest point from the airport) for gambling. Well, maybe not gambling…more just fondling chips.
Can we just pause here for a moment to ask, why is everywhere they go so empty? Is it August and 125 degrees?
Whoa…watch those hands fella.
And why do we rarely see his face? What is this international guy (who may or may not be laundering money) hiding?
Wait! What the fuck? Is he buying her a rock at Leeds and Sons?
How is that possible seeing as how all of El Paseo shuts down at like 1:30 in the afternoon?
Pause now for a word from our sponsors.
So where are these two off to now? Back to Palm Springs of course! How have they not had to stop for gas yet with all the driving they are doing?
And who the hell are these people?
Back to the couple, she is so in to him…
Holy crap, did you see that other couple totally making out in the background? Is this just a long lead up to a porn scene?
So, I am going to go with yes…
Okay, so I guess they did it and are now in the car (safe after all he has had to drink). It is nice to see them take the drive past El Paseo’s famed Chi Chi Club which is currently showcasing Louis Armstrong (and his entire company) on this very weird evening. And someone may want to look into fixing the sign as, based on the reflection, it may be backwards.
Old movie by the pool for some reason.
So come to Palm Springs everyone.
