Of Toronto

The spirit of Toronto captured on video

We're big fans of videos that pay homage to Toronto which is why we couldn't resist posting this video sent to us by local director Gary Samson. Of Toronto, a personal project just released on Vimeo this weekend, is a visual homage to the city. Making cameos are iconic buildings like OCAD, the AGO, Massey Hall and Honest Ed's, the Trinity Bellwoods' tennis courts, the Big Fat Burrito next to Lee's Palace, Lula Lounge, the Horseshoe, the West Toronto railpath, the derelict beauty of Sterling Road, the Japanese busker who plays in front of the Eaton Centre, Toronto alleyways, Chinatown, Kensington Market and a whole lot more.

It's all set to Lover's Spit by Broken Social Scene. Sit back, relax and take a look below.
