Spanish Town Opts To Stay Smurf Blue
The small Spanish town of Juzcar has opted to keep itself Smurf blue, because it's brought in more tourists, and tourist dollars, since the town was painted the color last year. Producers for the Smurf film paid the town to paint itself the bright blue color, and used Juzcar in the live action Smurfs film.
Spanish Town Becomes Smurf Village
This is a photo of Juzcar, a town in Spain that has been chosen for the world premiere of "The Smurfs 3D." Why? Because the town opted to paint all of its buildings blue and erect oodles of Smurfy statues in public squares. Oh, and the local kids have taken to wearing smurf hats?
