Iceland invites visitors to SCREAM to blow off lockdown steam in bizarre tourism campaign (VIDEO)

Iceland invites visitors to SCREAM to blow off lockdown steam in bizarre tourism campaign (VIDEO)

rt - 2 weeks ago

Despite escaping the coronavirus pandemic largely unscathed, Iceland has decided to open its pristine landscapes up to those suffering under lockdown elsewhere in the world, inviting them to let it out with a piercing scream.

Visit Iceland, the official marketing department for the country's tourism board, launched its ‘Let it Out’ campaign on Wednesday, hoping to tempt tourists to the island by offering them the opportunity to let out all their pent-up stress and frustrations stemming from the pandemic by literally screaming their lungs out into the Icelandic wilderness.

The creatives behind the campaign cite the stress-relieving effects of screaming, which “literally [allows] your amygdala to release the stress stored there and move forward,” as the reasoning behind the somewhat unnerving initiative. 

Several yellow speaker boxes play the recorded and uploaded screams of people from around the world in various remote locations across the island nation, including Festarfjall in Reykjanes Peninsula, Djúpivogur in the east and the Skógafoss waterfall in the south. 

Users also receive a video recording of their screams being played out, and you can hear a sample of the screams on the campaign’s website. (WARNING: It should go without saying, but the screams are loud, so you might want to turn the volume down before clicking!).

Some praised the campaign, saying “Well done Iceland! You clever bunch!!!”

Not everyone was quite so convinced it was such a good idea, however, with some suggesting it might have the opposite effect on potential tourists. 

“What a crappy ad. Nobody wants to go to Iceland if there are loudspeakers with shouting people all over the place. It's supposed to be the opposite - quiet!” wrote one YouTube user.

“Boggles the mind how all this money spent on an ad campaign encourages people to come and destroy one of the best things about Iceland - the solitude and quiet. Inspired by Idiocy!” agreed another.
