Brisbane Sleepy Town Save Tonight

Brisbane’s most recent tourism TV commercial features the city by night – showing that we’re no longer a sleepy town. The spot includes shots of life on the river, Southbank beach, nightclubs and restaurants, cafes and wine bars, and dolphin feeding. The final shot, a couple almost asleep in a cafe at dawn, playfully tells us that yes Brisbane is a sleepy town, for good reason.
