City Council Reacts to Leavenworth Rap Video

December 09, 2010

    Many of you heard it here

first, as KOHO Radio first broke news of a new viral marketing rap video promoting Leavenworth. The city’s

unofficial nutcracker mascot, Woody Goomsba, is at it again. The views on Youtube started ticking up almost

immediately, and by press time were well over 50,000.
    Featuring scantily dirndled dancers

and a bevy of shots of fun in and around the Bavarian village, the video has generated a storm of comments, both

online and around town.
    We sent reporter Isaac Kaplan-Woolner to ask Leavenworth City

Council member what they thought of the “Gitcha Goomsba Up” online rap video, paid for by Leavenworth

Area Promotions (LAP) dollars. Councilwoman Farivar and Councilman Lak felt the video misrepresents Leavenworth

and gives a bad impression, perhaps even alienting some visitors. Councilman Molohon said he loved the video from

its inception, and sees advertising to younger viewers as crucial to Leavenworth's future.

Moon Productions.
