What do you see?

When I saw this picture in the local Blick am Abend newspaper I thought, "Oh, a graduation ceremony."

But then I read the caption and realized the Swiss saw something else: a little Las Vegas.

The beginning of this caption reads: Air Force Academy, CO--For the Americans, everything is a little Las Vegas.

I think this caption versus my original impression of the photo says a lot about the difference between Swiss and American culture.

What do you think?

What do they mean "For Americans it's all a bit Las Vegas?" that ceremonies are too festive? That Americans are tacky? That American celebrations are over-the-top?

I can see how the average conservative Swiss might see it that way. I think they could do with a bit more OTT festivities ;-)

Yup. I don't get it! What do they mean by that?
