There’s at least one group that isn’t happy about the success of Mike Posner‘s song I Took A Pill In Ibiza – The Ibiza tourism board. The Spanish island is already fighting stereotypes that they’re all about partying and debauchery, and the song isn’t exactly helping.
Tourism director Vicent Ferrer is making an attempt at damage control by inviting Mike Posner to “discover Ibiza”, with a statement saying:
We have much more to offer besides the nightlife which is known worldwide. We have museums, beaches, culture, gastronomy. We have a wide offer but unfortunately we have been typecast this way.
Ferrer also notes people who want to take drugs or drink alcohol can be found at “any tourist destination” and he doesn’t think it’s fair for Ibiza to be “pigeonholed”. So STOP thinking it’s the greatest place in the world to party, already!
Check out everything Ibiza has to offer on their tourism page, and definitely DO NOT pay any attention to how much fun people are having in this video.
