A Tangled Tale, TV Ad, Newfoundland and Labrador Tourism


In the quiet of the Morning Calm,
where the Sun rises at the dawn and the birds sing their waking song,
there’s a story to be told It rounds the corners and the cliffs, Past the dories and the skiffs After making its rounds through the lips of a teller from Forteau. There’s tales to be told of fairies in trees Of ships that wrecked in the northeastern breeze and of giants brought down to their knees by the beauty of this place You never know where stories will appear
Could be aboard a boat or atop a pier But, one thing remains abundantly clear It’s worth the time to listen. So, if you hear a teller telling you a tangled tale, or maybe two. Rest assured, every word is true. Especially the bits they make up.

  1. I always love the Newfoundland and Labrador commercials! I've visited this province 34 times and look forward to many more!

  2. I read every story of the Hardy boys, Nancy Drew and others when i was a kid. Nfld is a great place for living stories like that growing up as kids. My best friends parents dropped us off on Kellys isl in my teens and we camped there for days. it was magical

  3. Great video and love what is said but really think it should have been someone with even a little Newfoundland accent

  4. I've been away for a little of a year on the other side of the world. Lived on 2 islands but the ocean feeling just isn't the same. Nothing quite like the ocean of there. If you are looking for a true peaceful island hoilday away from crowds Newfoundland is it. I left Tasmania which felt overflood with tourists but Newfoundland has so many hidden gems, coves trails you can escape the crowds. Newfoundlander forever.

  5. As always….gorgeous ad for the Province…BUT sadly unfortunate that Newfoundland and Labrador government people who had to have approved this ad, don't know that a brown dog is a disqualification in the Official Newfoundland dog Standard….and goes contrary to the Order In Council passed by Cabinet in 1972 by which the Newfoundland Dog was designated as the official animal emblem of the Province. The Order designates that only Black and Landseer (white and black) is acceptable in the Breed. I do wish people would do their homework…..and I AM a Newfoundlander.

  6. Join a local storyteller and learn all about our Fairy culture at the Fairylore Walkabout in beautiful Tors Cove this summer. Learn more here http://natureminded.ca/Walkabout.html

  7. Some other provinces should hire this marketing team. These advertisements get your attention both visually and verbally.

  8. I happen to work in commercial production and have to say this is beautifully done. From the gorgeous visuals to the wonderful narration. I want to visit Newfoundland and Labrador more than ever now.

  9. We were in Newfoundland for a week in July, what a feast for our eyes! The hiking was great, the people were the kindest and the beer was good too. I will never forget the time we spent in Newfoundland.

  10. Every time there’s another great new ad, I always ask myself, where are all these great places they’re showing that I haven’t seen after three visits?

  11. Good visual but terrible voice! I am from Newfoundland and normally love our ads but this voice is not up to our usual standards. Bad choice.

  12. Awesome commercial! The bronze Newfoundland dog is one of mine from Ochre River Manitoba and now has a beautiful back yard 😊❤️

  13. For those who want the words:

    In the quiet of the morning calm,
    Where the sun rises at the dawn
    And the birds sing their waking song,
    There’s a story to be told

    There’s tales to be told of fairies in trees
    Of ships that wrecked in the northeastern breeze
    And of giants brought down to their knees by the beauty of this place

    It’s worth the time to listen
    So, if you hear a teller telling you a tangled tale, or maybe two

  14. I dont understand why these ads have peoples names with the phone number. This one has Shannon, the ad I saw on Air Canada had Sean, what if both were out sick….who'd i call?????

  15. Love this …it is truly inspired. My mother would have loved it too..she was from Cape Breton..not so far away…this thread runs through my veins…from ancient times…thank you..it is so beautiful.

  16. By's this is beautiful and very well done tourism commercial. I think we'll do a reaction video of this on our channel. We've done a couple now.

  17. Oh my heart…this was filmed in the Bay L’Argent , Little Bay East and Harbour Mille area, part of the Heritage Run and the road less traveled…now the world knows it’s beauty ❤️
