New Yorker Robert Reid is literally finding the 'tune' in Saskatoon, which he called the most tunefully-suggestive city in a new video.

He chose it as one of seven cities he was hired to create online videos on for the Canadian Tourism Commission, and it seems the Bridge City is grabbing a lot of attention in particular because a side project about Saskatoon's tuneful side is now circulating YouTube.

"It's gotta be the greatest city name of all time, Saskatoon Saskatchewan," he said.

"It's got seven bridges, it's got river trails, and it's the place from which Joni Mitchell hails."

In the side project video 'how to create the Saskatoon Sensation' Reid talks to Mayor Atchison and locals.

Saskatoon Tourism is promoting the video in their twitter feed, and their media relations coordinator Alex Stang said Reid did a good job of capturing the 'feeling' of the city.

"To be honest I was trying not to laugh too loud here in the office," she said.
