TKC 450 South by Southwest Interactive

David Measer of RPA Advertising and Lisa Pecot-Hebert of USC

Interview starts at 25:08 and ends at 49:15

I expected the smaller cities in the U.S. to be places where eventually trends made their way there and that they’d be listening to music that I listened to 10 years ago, or wearing fashion that was old. And it wasn’t like that at all. These places, cities that I couldn’t even identify on a map before I went–Sioux Falls, South Dakota; Fargo, North Dakota; Moorehead, Minnesota; Omaha, Nebraska–were actually places that were thriving in their own way. They really had an identity of their own, and they felt like they were leading the charge. They weren’t drafting off of the big coastal cities. (David Measer)
