Canoga Park Tourism Video

Time is running out to keep LAist funded.
It's the FINAL DAY of our June Member Drive and we are behind on our goal to keep local news strong for the coming months. Your support today keeps our reporters ready to meet the needs of our city. Plus, your gift's impact will be twice as strong because it will be matched dollar for dollar!

For today's video lunch we examine a piece that attempts the wicked-harsh-yet-enthusiastically-negative approach to attracting tourists to San Fernando Valley's Canoga Park neighborhood. Says the creator, "Growing up in Canoga Park was a gift. My dream came true when the Canoga Park Tourism Board found my 'Video Production and Car-wash Service' ad on Craigslist, and they actually hired me to make this tourism video. I hope they like it!" They didn't.

Do not mess with Canoga Park. One word folks, Rocketdyne.
