The Rhode Island Commerce Corporation (RICC) launched its new logo and branding video this week, and the Ocean State is none too pleased about it. The RICC spent nearly $5 million on the tourism campaign, and it became instantly clear that a few things were amiss -- including a very simplistic logo design, and evidence that not all scenes of their "We Are Rhode Island" video were filmed in Rhode Island -- or even in America.

The picture at right appears 0:10 into the video, but where is that building? A quick Google search identified it as the Harpa Concert Hall and Conference Centre (left) in Reykjavík, Iceland
UPDATE: The RICC removed the video from YouTube, but the footage still exists via Gov. Gina Raimondo's Twitter account.
