Ah, I can never watch these nature documentaries any more. I know it's all staged. Remember when Disney got all those Canadians to stampede in Vancouver? It's just cruel to watch them in these.

This freaking killed me, I am honestly still laughing at "Living in Canada discount" and James's "fill this man with poutine" bit, not to mention the M-eh-ting dance. :lol:

Seriously, probably my favourite LRR recently. Top score!

Now if you'll excuse me, I think I have some gifs to make.

Self parody has always been one of LRRs strong points. Well done.

Loved the "Living in Canada discount." Wish I could get some of that lol.
Also I want to try some poutine now. Looked tasty, eh? :D

The stinger might be my new favorite LRR stinger - and from the sound of it, Graham had fun with it too.

Great vid; Graham's 'documentary narrator' voice nails it as always, Paul is the perfect choice for the 'primary subject', and the writing..."Living in Canada Discount"! Image

One thing tho; why did you ship Jonny to Minnesota? ;)

Right in the vag.

Lots of funny stuff in this episode. You could see the point when James wanted to stop eating. And all the stingers were great, as shown.

I believe Butte (heh) is in Montana, maybe they just got the state abbreviation wrong?

Kinda funny that in your sketch about how canadians are a little bit different you got the state wrong.

You should have just said "it was intentional, we dont know the states they are a mystery to us, Washington is on top, California is below that I think something might be in between. Boston is on the other side and North Carolina is below that."

50 states is just a really long running typo, it's actually 5 states.

Washington, California, Florida, New York, and "The Mid West".

I doubt most Americans could name all our provinces, or—more pertinently—get all their shipping abbreviations right :D

It's annoying too, because I actually know them all. I just wasn't thinking when I wrote that.

... Then again, well, they've got Celine Dion. :P

This was top notch though. I think it's the third best Canada Day video overall, behind National Anathema and Canadaman (of course).

Extra U's and arbitrarily rearranging letters - eg Colourful Neighbourhood Theatre?

That's not Canadian to English, that is English :D

I fail to see the problem here :D

And James eating poutine is... strangely hypnotic...

As much as the non-existence of my state would probably be a boon for the US, I'm kind of sad Florida makes the list.

James looks like he's genuinely eating that out of spite.
