I've ranted about this before. Promotional materials for other cities will tend to show off the built form of the place. Promotional materials for Victoria will tend to be vague, showing close-ups of people engaged in a stock range of activities (but not necessarily actual stock images) and showing natural scenery that's well outside the city itself. For years I noted how Victoria's tourism guides and magazines would typically never show an establishing picture of the city itself. Whereas Vancouver, Portland, Ottawa, Halifax, and even smaller places like Nanaimo would typically show the city on the cover and then multiple times again within the pages. In one Victoria guide there were zero establishing shots or aerials of downtown Victoria but there were TWO such images of Sidney! And we can never forget that official tourism campaign from a few years back: "Victoria - Because it could really be any place, right?"
Anyway, in this case I suppose I should give them a point for briefly showing a very high aerial from southwest of James Bay at the start, and then the image showing the project renderings at the end. But it still seems odd to me that an ad to promote downtown Victoria living wouldn't have bothered to show some images of the downtown area.
FYI: I'm still stewing about the potential for a "duplicated podium" effect along two consecutive blocks of Yates Street. That wouldn't be good. In this case it might be a lucky break that the ground level of the Regent towers will provide such a strong interruption between the two developments.
