Talking to Americans

Just found an old gem from the past. This is a TV special Rick Mercer did a few years ago called "Talking to Americans". Rick Mercer was the host of a show called This Hour Has 22 Minutes and used to be the English-Canadian equivalent of the Daily Show or The Colbert Report. Mercer now hosts The Mercer Report.

Here in Québec, we used to have a show called La Fin du Monde est à 7 Heures (The End of the World is at 7 O'Clock) and the tradition continues with Infoman. Those shows have all the same goal of lampooning stupidity in the medias and in politics and they all made it hilarious.

Now, back on Mercer's special. Okay, agreed, it's not all Americans that are that ignorant about the rest of the world and there is probably as much ignorant people north of the frontier. But still, this is hilarious. Mostly since Rick Mercer makes governors and university professors say completely stupid shit.
