Comedian Chelsea Peretti has been on point with her Vine game lately. Earlier this summer, she used it to issue the #royhibbertchallenge, in which followers were asked to drink 20 ounces of Gatorade in six seconds, like Pacers star Roy Hibbert, and vine it. Now, she’s spoofed those insufferable “This Is My [City]” tourism board spots. 

Last week, Peretti posted this clip, which shows her lit in sunlight, taking in one of L.A.’s natural wonders. 

A civic mantra was born. As often happens on Vine, Peretti’s followers started doing remakes, replacing “L.A.” with six-second shoutouts to the places they live. Most of them are funny; some are a little depressing. Still, Peretti’s parody has allowed for an interesting geographical snapshot. 

From her Vine, we get to see…






And back to L.A.!

There are more than a dozen other examples, which Peretti has been re-vining. If you can’t take a summer vacation, this is the next best thing.
