Minnesota tourism is on the rise thanks to a new raunchy slogan that Explore Minnesota has adopted.

Minnesota Timberwolves star Anthony Edwards (AKA Ant Man) single-handedly put the state of Minnesota on the map for not just his moves on the court but for the new unofficial slogan of the state.

During a postgame interview with NBA Legend Charles Barkley, he told the Ant Man that he has not been to the state of Minnesota in 20 years?! And what was Anthony Edwards' response? "Bring ya ass!"

It might not be the most appropriate slogan to use. However, Explore Minnesota and the residents cannot get enough of this single sentence from Anthony Edwards!

"Bring Ya Ass" has inspired the tourism campaigns in Minnesota. Explore Minnesota is using this phrase as part of a new motto on its homepage on the website.

"Welcome to a state of possibility. Whether you’re planning a visit or pondering a move, Minnesota is ready to welcome you. In other words.... Bring ya a-."

According to an article from People Magazine, comedian and Minneapolis native Jon Savitt has even bought a new domain called bringyaass.com. This unofficial Minnesota slogan is taking the nation by storm!

Compared to South Dakota slogans like "Meth, We're On It" and Neberaska's infamous slogan, "Honestly, it's not for everyone," I think Explore Minnesota will be in good hands!

So if you're thinking about visiting the Land of 10,000 Lakes this summer, bring ya ass down! You won't regret it!
