As a Candian, I want to downvote this, but other people should see it and be similarly enraged, so five stars.
Had I known you were Canadian I wouldn't have even responded to your comments. Because Canadians are stupid and I don't need to respond to stupid people.
When I think of Canadiers, I think of Troy Hurtubise and his buddies smoking in a coffee shop at 4:30 in the morning. Not peace-loving, friendly people, but pickup-driving rednecks out antagonizing wildlife.
And if you Canadeites are so smart, how come you let the Quebecmen run all over you? Why should everyone in Winnipeg have to learn French -- French, of all languages, with the worst numbering system outside of Watership Down -- because the 30 assholes in St. Marietherese-aux-les-Aubergines-sur-le-Lac can't be bothered to read the word "STOP" on a red, octagonal sign? You know they actually know English, right? They have to use it when they drive down into Newport to buy more super-tight jeans at the outlet mall.
"Marietherese-aux-les-Aubergines-sur-le-Lac" is worth five stars of its own.
Ersatz- Yes, I know, and thanks for bringing that up. I'm all for Quebec leaving. I believe most Canadians want Quebec to stay so we can continue to be a larger landmass than the US, but it's just not worth it. Also, they don't speak French, they speak something called "K-Bek-Wah" which is similar to French but spoken with a mouth full of springs.
Oh... and the video... these jokes are so mind numbingly old.
i can't stand these ads either. it's as if we can't take patriotism seriously because that would make us too much like Americans.
Well, that was a weird string of replies.
I was beat up by a Canadian once.
Hey, Canadians, if you don't want to be made fun of, don't be so fucking ridiculous.

Ha, ha, ha, Canada's trying to act like a real country.
I remember this commercial! It's about a decade old.
SPOILER: This company was later bought out by an American company. It still makes these pandering commercials.
whenever I buy this beer, no one drinks it, now I know why

I hate to break it to you Canuckians, but Americans generally don't know what a touque is or have any clue about your cultish devotion to Tim Horton's.
I was just about to point out how inaccurate this is, as most Americans have never heard the word "touque".

I heard there's giants that destroy the villages sometimes.

Dear Canada and Canadians:
I love you. Please don't judge me on the ridiculousness of my fellow American countrymen.
Yours in Christ,
Testicles of Doom
Dear Mr. Doom,
Thanks, your complimentary donut is in the mail.
Also, please drink responsibly.
Nobody actually acts this way towards Canadians and, best as I can tell, in the rare case that something like this does happen, I don't think Canadians tend to care. That's what irritates me about this.
I dont know how to rate this.
5 stars for being stupid evil.
0 stars on its own merits.
My poe logic is not working.
BTW the Molson label is co-owned by multinational corps. Coors and SABMiller. Neither of which are Canadian. Soooo, the shitty nationalism/patriotism this commercial tries to stir up (which is evil in its own right) is even more ridiculous.
Also: I was part of one of many marketing focus groups that lead up to this campaign. We were put in a room and asked what we thought of when we thought about Canadian. Most of us answered "um, we are Canadian", as a quick and easy answer so we could collect our $50 and get out of there. The marketing people were pleased.
Just to be clear here:
Canadians generally thought these ads were ridiculous and somewhat insulting when they came out, and still do. They're ads for a fucking beer country trying to prey upon our nationalism. And most of it really stupid 'nationalism' we don't really care about. Which, as any Canadian will tell you, is possibly the dumbest thing to attempt...ever.
It's a goddamn beer company. The beer isn't even good. And it isn't even Canadian any more. So...yeah. It belongs on here about as much as any dumb 'patriotic' commercial from anywhere else does, but we aren't going to leap to its defense. Any more than I'm ever going to watch hockey.
Five stars for stupid I was, and am, subjected to far too often when watching the news.

Looks like Max Headroom really isn't that funny without all the effects and a cocaine twitch.
I love Canada and Canadians. That is all.
