Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) - North Dakota Tourism is using a special celebrity for its new 2014 advertising campaign.

Josh Duhamel is known nation-wide as an actor, but never forgets his home.

North Dakota Tourism wants you to "claim your legend" with its brand new advertising campaign for 2014.

The number one driving force behind visits to our state is the outdoors.

One special homegrown celebrity's voice is helping showcase the beautiful landscape.

Josh Duhamel is just one North Dakota native who knows the importance of his roots.

Josh Duhamel/Actor – Minot Native: “I was truly honored when they asked me to be the voice of their newest legendary advertising campaign."

Sara Coleman/ND Tourism: "We chose him not only because he's a celebrity, although his fan base is tremendous and should help us get additional coverage, but also just because of his genuine love of the state, the fact that his voice fit really well with the stunning imagery, and it was just a really good fit,"

North Dakota has 646 attractions, 357 events and festivals in the state.
