'PROGRESS IN MOTION!'
Amazon's announcement last month that it is looking to establish a second headquarters somewhere in America (or Canada) has sent the US's major metropolitan areas on a race to the bottom. New York City lit up its monuments and buildings in "Amazon Orange." Tucson, Arizona sent a 21-foot cactus to Amazon's existing headquarters in Seattle. (Amazon rejected it, which has got to hurt.) Birmingham, Alabama constructed enormous cardboard boxes and placed them around the city in a blithe tribute to wasteful packaging.
And countless cities made cheesy uncomfortable, poorly conceived and badly acted videos in a desperate attempt to convince Amazon to pick them. Here are a few of the worst efforts from America's cities.
