When the Springfield Convention and Visitors Bureau wanted to create a video to help promote tourism in the age of COVID, they reached out to one of Springfield’s best known comedians to create a special video.
The CVB turned to Jeff Houghton, host of the nationally televised Mystery Hour, and his Emmy Award winning crew, to create a special video in the vein of their viral video hits Instagram Husband or Icelandagram.
The result? “The Masked Mandate”…a parody of Superhero movie trailers that is filled with signs of Houghton’s trademark wry wit.
“I really believe in the effectiveness of masking, so I was really happy to have the opportunity to work with the Springfield CVB to get the messaging out in a unique way,” Houghton told OI.
The video is currently on YouTube and other file sharing sites. The CVB is hoping Springfield residents will share the video on their social media pages.
