It's true that the secret has "been out" when it comes to Idaho for some time--but it seems that more and more attention on the Pacific Northwest is becoming a national reality as well. From rolling green hills to deep canyons, evergreen forests to regal mountain tops--the Pacific Northwest really has it all, and offers something for everyone.

Hollywood usually bases their films in "the big city"-- New York, Miami, Chicago and L.A.--with some small town USA references here and there. While a popular and recently released movie has nothing to do with the Pacific Northwest--it does have a very 'PNW' reference.

Perhaps you've seen the trailer for 'White Men Can't Jump', a remake of the 1992 American sports comedy. The re-make stars a well-known hip hop artist, Jack Harlow.

Harlow is the main star in the movie and basketball fans that watch it will get the nearby reference:



Yes, the writers have Harlow casted as a former player at Gonzaga University-- a perennial NCAA basketball powerhouse that is less than 30-minutes from the Idaho border.

Jack Harlow isn't the first big name in Hip Hop to show love to Gonzaga, by the way--just weeks ago, Drake showed some love too!
