The Funniest “Better Than Epic” Travel Ad Ever (Thanks, Coronavirus)

by SharonKurheg

Every country out there has a slogan of some sort. Some are awesome, some, not so much. Some you wonder if whoever wrote it actually got paid for doing that because it’s so awful.

One country’s slogan was always kind of, well, OK. But they just changed it (granted, I’m not sure if it’s an “official” change or not) and it’s now, I would say, better than epic!

The country in question? Estonia.

The northeastern European country’s slogan HAD been “Epic Estonia.” And maybe it officially still is. But the country has an official Twitter account and whoever has been writing it been ramping up its game in recent days.

And as far as I’m concerned, between the sentiment and the (censored by me) hashtag, that just totally won the internet.

Whoever wrote this for the Visit Estonia Twitter page deserves a RAISE! 😉
