Potatoes, poetry presented as part of promotional push

The Latvian Investment and Development Agency (LIAA) has produced a new video, which it must be assumed is promotional, under its Magnetic Latvia/Visit Latvia sub-brands.

It features two and a half minutes of rhyming- and almost-rhyming English language quatrains on the subject of potatoes.

This occasional verse is married to images of two young men eating said tubers in various locations around Latvia.

There's really very little point in writing more about it when you can see and hear it for yourself above.

Other videos are also available at the Latvia Travel YouTube channel. The one below has a man pulling over in his car and chasing a woman across Zemgale region. She eventually disappears but then he picks her up in his car as a hitch-hiker.
