.Miami has produced a couple of very interesting videos in order to promote this regional domain name extension.
.Miami launched in October 2015 but its numbers are far from impressive. The New gTLD peaked at over 15,000 registrations in the 2nd half of 2016 and it is now sitting at 10,628 registered domains according to Namestat.
A fun fact: casting of the male lead voice in the animated movie is a Cuban American actor, Luis Alberto Acevedo Jr. He was born in Cuba and came to the US in 1980 on the Mariel Boat Lift. He’s been in a bunch of movies and TV, including Sin City, NCIS and Dallas.
Here are the 2 new .miami videos:

My initial reaction with the first video was to reject #1 selling point to be forward the .miami to the .com (shouldn’t people who love Miami or any other city/cityTLD forward the .com to the .city?).
After watching the whole video (and the second video) I think it differentiates well. It’s compelling for those who want a quick marketing option, web-forwarder (to old site or social media profile), email update, to show their pride for their city. Maybe these first steps lead to more sites being built on the .miami domain (as shown in the second video).
