This is the intro sequence to the series. The intro shows some Portlanders and landscape shots of the city, and the famous sculpture that shares a namesake with the show (which, fun fact, is the second-largest copper statue in the United States, after the world-famous New York one).

Portlandia is the sketch comedy brainchild of Carrie Brownstein and Fred Armisen (of SNL fame). It is set in the city of Portland, Oregon, and is meant to celebrate and poke fun at the town's quirks (and those of its inhabitants). This is one such clip that highlights the style of comedy used-- very dramatic, very exaggerated interpretations of "Portland" life.

What is Sussle?

Sussle is the first, open visual encyclopedia. Anyone can use it.

What's a visual encylopedia?

It has beautiful images and viral videos that are way more fun than reading all the text in traditional encyclopedias.

5 reasons you should add your own images and videos:

  1. If you found Sussle interesting, then give back by adding something interesting for others.
  2. Help others learn in a fun way.
  3. Make someone else interested in this topic laugh or say wow!
  4. Become internet-famous as people like and share your post.
  5. It's super easy, so it won't take more than a minute.
