New Pure Michigan Mackinac Island commercial

With the creation of the new Convention and Visitors Bureau on Mackinac Island, there's a dedicated source of funding to help promote the island. One of the first things they did was commission a Pure Michigan ad. Just like the other Pure Michigan ads, it features the voice of Tim Allen and the theme from 'Cider House Rules' but this time, it's all about Mackinac!

What GREAT commercial for the Island!!  I also have to admit, and I fell kinda dumb admitting this, but I never knew it was Tim Allen doing the Pure Michigan narrations.  I think he does a FANTASTIC job for the commercials.  Just a couple work weeks and Kim, the doggies, and I will be on the Island and we can't wait!!
