"What to see in Baku" or how- to-video- guide to using an audio guide

So I came across this video- from the series of new promo videos prepared ahead of the Eurovision song contest- apparently intended for showing beauties, monuments, architecture (or whatever is left of it) of the Old City, also known as "Icheri Sheher" (or Inner City). But to me it felt like this video is more about how to use the audio guide than the place itself. True there is footage of several spots in the Old City as well as mentioning of a restaurant but nothing more. And please, someone could have written a better script in English for this woman and also practice it with her- it felt like she was reading it for the first time.

There is a point in spotlighting corruption, human rights problems. But it is annoying that you are picking on everything about Azerbaijan, even when it is purely cultural video.
“Someone could have written a better script in English for this woman and also practice it with her” Why did you lash that girl?

Criticism is not that bad. Next time the script could be better. I am not saying anything bad abt the girl.
