Residents Of Blue Spanish Village Say It's Just Smurfy

The Spanish village of Juzcar was suffering from economic hard times. But in 2011, Sony Pictures picked the little town of about 250 people to promote The Smurfs. Promoters painted the entire village the bright blue of those little cartoon creatures. After getting used to the color — and the tourists it drew — residents have voted not to repaint.
