But in the world of social media and cyber celebrity-ism, one dreams of mass (infectious) popularity. We all want the kind of virus that Susan Boyle caught. Last year, a little video clip featuring Mr. Dave-the-Dreamboat was created to demystify the reputation of Montréal. It was entitled “Dave does Montréal” and it spread like herpes at a whorehouse. Here it is… What do you think? Is Montréal as sinful as they say? Message me on Facebook with your thoughts. I’ll take the most exciting sentiments and post them in the coming weeks.
