Oh, the hyperbole! I’ll bet the first minute and a half of this clip offers more entertainment than the 400-foot-tall Great Orlando Wheel ever will when it opens in central Florida in 2010. See for yourself.

wow, I’ve never been more proud to be an American than I am after watching the video about the wheel. God bless America!

Egads.  What a load of crap.  It takes big, ol’ red, white, and blue cajones to lump in a ferris wheel with international landmarks with thousands of years of history.

The wheel isn’t even going to be the most iconic of Orlando’s structures.  That would be Cinderella’s Castle at Disney.

The Borelando Wheel! Awesome! This calls for a new ‘New 7 Wonders of the World’ vote.

Way to try to be London. Sorry, Miami, it will never happen!

...And by Miami, I meant Orlando…my brain usually melts at around 4:30 p.m.

Wow - and to think I thought I was proud to live in Orlando before. Amazing.

Says you can see for 25 miles all round. Though by 2010, maybe ther’ll be something even bigger and better…

We’re absolutely sure this isn’t a brilliant piece of satire, right?
