I agree, the started strong, and nevertheless, the videos are amazing... the city is amazing and in any video presentation they will always look better, but Erdogan talking about peace, love, even press freedom hahaha when we saw what he did a few weeks ago. Anyway, overall I was a bit scared by Istanbul presentation and although the videos were good, I think they wasted a huge chance to bring the IOC to their side (I think).

Not good to say that Turkey is better off than 11 years ago, referring to the year when he became Prime Minister. This is not a campaign rally for your party, Mr. Erdogan.

I think Istanbul still has a chance, I dont think these presentations are so crucial!

If a Muslim country will host Olympics anytime soon it is probably Turkey, way ahead of competition!

Maybe it is the time! Let's see.

If they win however, it will not because of this presentation, does not elicit any emotions!

If anyone is having trouble with the IOC link, set the language to "Floor" below the screen. It's working for me, & it's better because you hear what's being said without translation as though you're there. :)

Ok, now I'm really disappointed with their presentation, focusing too much on themselves, and also, that background voice on the video reminded me of Big Brother!!

I think it is funny that they use the figure of Jesus so much in the videos when the Hagia Sophia might become a mosque once again instead of being a museum as it is nowadays.... I think that reflects in a way the uncertainties of the Istanbul bid... a lot of promises but ..... the future might be different and I think uncertainty is too high for them to win.

just show the beautiful city with music and I’d vote for Istanbul, don’t need the actor and other attempts to make Istanbul the sweet free city of kites.

the last video sucks... opening ceremony could be awesome...

young generation card at the end is a winning move i think.

That last video I believe was well put together but with the dictator PM and some of the arrogance displayed, I think Istanbul has not done anything to help their cause.
