A focus group too far

Don't let anyone say I am not a supporter of shale development in Pennsylvania. Below is some free earned pseudo-media. I am fascinated by this new advertisement with about as much youth, diversity, entrepreneurism and distilled urbanity as you can pack into 30 seconds. It is also the best film montage of Pittsburgh since Jack Reacher. I can just see this coming from the focus group results that narrowed down who needs to be persuaded to support more drilling activity in the city.  The obsessive apopheniac in me can read the tea leaves as to what motivated this.

Forget Galt... WHO IS MR. WINDLE?

addendum: PBT gives an update that may explain a bit why the Pittsburgh video was produced: Range 2014 plan to focus on Marcellus, southwestern Pennsylvania

Addendum: Now compare and contrast with this older Marcellus Shale promo video and the map at time 0:14 that had a big doughnut hole for Allegheny County. No doughnut hole any longer it seems. Also note the line comparing Pennsylvania to Cambodia or Syria and of course the iconic Gordon Gecko:

MH says I am a red neck racist bigot, so I will refrain from commenting.
