Happy Canada Day! I Am Canadian....

9:19 AM Posted by CalgaryDaddy







 Happy Canada Day everyone!  To all of my American readers, I have attached a classic Molson Canadian beer commercial from a few years ago that took the country by storm.  It pretty much addresses every Canadian stereotype that people have of us in a fun, mocking way!  Canadians are typically a humble, quietly proud people, so the "in your face" approach this commercial takes is such a contradiction, which is why it was such a great ad!



I always tease people by saying we are so similar to the Amercians that the only difference is that we have No Guns, Free Healthcare and we are better looking! ( J/k.... )

The ending of the video where Joe says.... "thank you" pretty much sums up Canadians.  Even when we rant, we are still polite to a fault!


Happy Canada Day!
