Moving away from their regular route, this ad attempts to portray the parallel existence of the scenic landscape containing the slow paced life and the modern aspects of life. What disturbs me a bit is the voiceover at the end which says the place being captured by the dutch, french and the english is a proof of its captivating beauty which we know as the imperialistic force!!!

Sometimes a voiceover is just a voiceover. I don't think imperialism ever came into it. Newfoundland doesn't do imperialism particularly well.
