Watch: Move over Sprocket Man, SDOT has a new spokesper…uh…salmon

OK, so departments of transportation are not known for their excellent advertising. There are exceptions, for sure, like those Midttrafik bus commercials:

Or New York’s recent car-shrinking bus GIFs:

But in general, Seattle’s 1980s Sprocket Man ads are much more the norm:

But SDOT has a new “spokessalmon” named Sal who went around town like Triumph the Insult Comic Dog interviewing people but not really letting them get a word in. The message of the video, part of the city’s Flip Your Trip campaign, is that people should try taking the bus, walking or biking to work at least one a week. I mean, that’s certainly a good start!

Watch:

So far so good. I look forward to the biking episode (there is one, right?).
