"A big country with a lot of wood": What America (and the world) really thinks about Canada

Gavin McInnesArchive

I hit the streets of New York City to ask Americans -- and the world (that is, tourists in Times Square) -- what they think about when they hear the word Canada.


From our different strip club rules to how cold it is (of course), most people had something to say.

Were the "world's" answers any different than the average Americans? Watch and see:

Wow lighten up people, Gavin is funny, very funny not everything is a home run, but if you’re so offended by anything he says here’s a very un-novel conservative libertarian idea, don’t watch. How can you claim to be a conservative when you seek to deny me the choice to view or not view Janet? The idea here is no individual decides for others, if you can’t bring yourself to donate because one voice you disagree with is present then maybe you aren’t all that conservative after all.

I’m with the other commenter, who wanted no more donation requests as long as McInnes is out there making us Canadians look like idiots. We’re trying to save the world (or at least the western world) here. Leave the pitiful attempts at humour (though I’m a great fan of humour in general) for those comedians who think profanity and cluelessness
is all that’s necessary to elicit a laugh.

Good job Gavin, I liked what you did there, eh.

For anyone chirping Gavin about curse words, take off and get a life.

C’mon guys I realize he’s doing schtick but if there’s anyone west of the rockies that talks ‘like that’, I sure as hell have never met them. Don’t think I’d want to. I’m mostly onside with Gavin but that was “way” over the the top.
commented 2015-06-04 14:17:17 -0400
I think Gavin could have pursued the subject of Canadian wood more fully with the American ladies. You know what they say, “Once you go maple…”

pat i’m with you on that.

I may not like cursin’ and swearin’ but I will defend your right to do it to the death! Hopefully, not mine. As those terrible words came outta yo mouf, I said to myself, ‘Does he think he’s Charlie Chaplin, obliviously walking through danger, unscathed? Does he not know he’s gonna get slap sticked in the comments?’ It was so funny. One minute I was all serious and uptight and the next minute I was all chuckley and shit. Oops. Anyway, the court jester can say things that nobody else can get away with, right? It’s a revered tradition. And, come on folks, maybe he has Turrets. What are you gonna do, shove him in a closet when company comes? It’s not like he wrote a script with cus words first. Besides, have you heard what they can say in TV scripts, these days? Why the double standard for Gavin? I think he has a sublimely refined soul…with a potty mouth, of course.

You were not funny Gavin & the 4letter word coming out of your mouth was disgusting. Those people you interviewed were stupid enough without more of your stupid remarks & stupid questions.
commented 2015-06-02 17:58:58 -0400
Good on ya, Gavin. A few more of these cultural exchanges and Bob’s yer uncle, world peace, eh?
commented 2015-06-02 17:07:28 -0400
Surprises me how fast it takes the butthurt Canadians here to hate on a “not so awesome release”. Fact is Gavin is the funniest libertarian since… Any conservative. Do you really want the stigma (old rich white guys) to be attached to this site too? If you don’t like his vids fine don’t watch em but don’t ask the rebel to take em down. Cause he is one of the only reasons I would pay to watch news online..
commented 2015-06-02 16:06:06 -0400
I’m surprised that anyone in the “Big Apple” knew what Canada was!
commented 2015-06-02 15:18:29 -0400
What’s up with all the butthurt Canadians in these comments? This wasn’t Gavin’s best releases to date but they were entertaining and interesting.
commented 2015-06-02 13:46:58 -0400
Yea, I have to agree with everyone here. Gavin, that was not funny at all.
commented 2015-06-02 13:29:36 -0400
To be honest I quit watching as it became insulting rather quickly. I enjoy humerus “news” but this was neither of those two.
commented 2015-06-02 13:08:25 -0400
Not impressed at all.
commented 2015-06-02 12:04:26 -0400
Please don’t ask me for any more donations as long as this clown is cursing and making Canadians look like idiots.
commented 2015-06-02 11:58:02 -0400
Oh come now Gavin…the whole world is miffed about the “tar sands” and our reluctance to pay our carbon tax fines to the UN…..just ask Justin’s chief advisor the expert.
