Nice cowboy hats for New York City

NEW YORK CITY!

When I saw the title I wondered why Canada would be sorry, I mean look at the neigbour they have to put up with.

I demand a government approved apology for watching that damned dancing at the end.
Also, I'd like my twenty seconds back.
Actually, make it thirty. Throw in the typing of this message.

Being stranded in Finland?
...How great would that be. The only danger is that you´ll probably never return home again, because this place is just so goshdarn neat.

Well, I guess Canada is pretty cool too. Thanks for this, folks.

Great, now I will never go back to Canada... CURSE YOU IBM!!!!

You didn´t really want to go back anyway, did you.
Just relax and enjoy your stay, forever and ever. You will find us mostly harmless.

Great...Now I have a bad feeling about this...

I'll need help for translations though...Think you can do it?

Don´t get it, eh? Do I have to explain it in words of one syllable?
Well, it goes like this...

Seriously though, if you actually want the lyrics translated, I could probably do that.

Yeah, it would be lovely. Can I get a translation pretty please?

Wow this series is just not funny......

Well it was, until there were people trying to act (obviously this did not go well)

I'm Mexican but after watching this I think I might actually come from Canadian descent.

Well, since we are on the subject of self-irony, here you go:

I apologize for any possible mistakes or mistranslations.

The clock being what it is right now I'm too tired to read through or even Ctrl + F this topic so I just ask and if it has been already asked, then I'm sorry. Really.

What is LRR's relation with Finland? It keeps popping around occassionaly and as finnish I'm interested.

And before I log out and go to sleep, good episode!

The country that produced Rush is aces in my book, and everyone else who ever picked up drum sticks book, too.

Seriously, Canada is one of those countries that seems to be universally liked. Australia too.

Can't remember hearing a cross word about either my entire life. Good people who seem to be liked the world over. That sense of poking fun at themselves is probably part of it.

Well, you still could have come up with something less stereotypical. I may be abrasive about things like this, but it's only because I'm constantly exposed to it, as a Canadian with Irish heritage and a great number of Asian (as in from Pakistan to the Philippines) friends.

You are rather funny people, but relying on these old stereotypes is beneath you.

I suppose you thought the Olympics closing ceremonies were trite and pathetic too, didn't you?

Were you the one person in the audience not pissing themselves laughing?

The closing ceremonies were pathetic and insulting to those of us with pride. People in RCMP uniforms rubbing up against Michael Buble? William Shatner talking about sex in a canoe? What an embarrasement, it's the olympics for crying out loud. Like Pheipl said: "I am SORRY I lost just over 5 minutes of my life on this peace of American bull**** (I am not Canadian, I'm European)"
It's gotten bad when people from outside you're borders have to remind you of you're pride.

I'm a French Canadian from Québec... and well I'm really not sorry... trought you can keep Celie Dion and Justien Biel (what is name exactelly) I don' want them around

And true... USA have Alaska

french Canadians are not realy Canadians im sorry you had to hear what they think

Quebecors are real men, and real Canadians. 77% describe themselves as Canadian nationalists. A nationalist means "my country, right or wrong" essentially. No wussy, reducing ones own existence jokes, no bullcrap. Just true, Canadian pride and honour. I'm from Alberta, and from those people I've met from Quebec, I can say we have one thing in common. We both have balls, and we both take Canada seriously, and love it with pride and passion. Can the same be said of people who make these lazy jokes? How long would it take them to take up arms in defence of Canada, if they were by themselves as compared to someone from Quebec? I would say much longer, if not at all. Quebecors would not hesitate. They would not have indecision. Can the same be said of you?

Canada is forgiven. Except Justin Bieber of course.

Karathos:
... leave them in Finland without a passport? Where the hell did that come from? :D

(Yes, I'm finnish)

Comes from the fact that Canada had tons of immigrants from Finland back in the old days. Well tons and tons, but compared to the population of Finland.

(Yes, I'm finnish too)

OT: Nice video. And I do like Canada. People are really sorry, I mean polite there. It is amazing. Compared to the finlands policy of not saying anything in any situation, I love the Canadian way to apologize.

Eclectic Dreck:
The man made the Terminator and Aliens. Even if those moves are nearly three decades old it more or less excuses him from any wrongdoing in my book.

Almost three decades of dreck is hard to excuse, period.

Matt_LRR:

That said, our mandate as comedy preformers is to entertain not educate, and the prime target for canadian humour that appeals to audiences outside of canada is national stereotypes. However, there's loads of territory left for us to cover, and we've touched on everything from the history of our national anthem to the canadian heritage minutes that used to air on TV in our canada day episodes, so who knows what we'll do when the time comes next year.

Playing with stereotypes can be fine. Though mostly I just wanted to say some of us American folks do enjoy Canadian humour. We just pretend not to so we don't get beat up as often. :D

The man's career only spans three decades. If that implies you thought Aliens, The Abyss, The Terminator, Terminator 2'and True Lies are all garbage then I find it quite difficult to find any common ground. Yes, he also made Titanic and Avatar, and while I didn't care for them, its obvious a great many people did. Even if I didn't like those movies, I still don't consider them outright bad by any stretch - they just were't for me.

Lonan:
I'm from Alberta

Ah, that would explain the lack of a sense of humour. :P

Just like the US broadcasters watching the closing ceremonies who didn't get it AT ALL. They seriously though we were offering up a heartfelt tribute to our national history instead of mocking every stereotype out there.

Canadians are very good at both mocking ourselves, while being fiercely proud of our country and it's rich history. If you cannot do both at the same time, I feel sorry for you.

Snip

Can I tell you something? I'm thinking I definitely need to visit Canada. It's come to my attention that a startling number of the awesome things I've been enjoying recently come from Canada. Things like:

-LoadingReadyRun
-The New Pornographers
-Bryan Lee O'Malley's Scott Pilgrim books
-Broken Social Scene
-Degrassi (well okay, my girlfriend loves it; I've never watched)
-and more!

In fact, I might move there someday.

The beiber part was hilarious!

You have Bioware, no need to be sorry.

Funny thing is, you go to LoadingReadyRun's YouTube channel page and you see this message:

SKETCH COMEDY THAT MAKES NO APOLOGIES. SORRY.

Coincidence....or providence?

I am Mexican and even I think this is offensive...

You forgot to apologise for Nickelback.

you forgot the other canadian invention: Timmy's! For those of you not here in the north, that's Tim Hortons. <3

laol1999:

Blind Sight:
That actually reminds me of this:

That being said, I'm sorry for Nickelback and Celine Dion.

i love that show

I'm just sorry I didn't see that one before :D An awesome show for sure!

Wait a minute, universal health care is a terrible thing, as it leaves people at the mercy of an unfeeling, apathetic bureaucracy. Shouldn't that be something else Canada should be sorry for?

I'm Canadian and I'm sorry i don't like anyone

Dude, that was the worst acting I'v seen on this site XD
You guys are funnier and better on ENN.

And true... USA have Alaska

Alaska only has three cities that are attached by road the rest you need a boat or plane to get to. Also many of the teenagers just go to white horse and call it the "big city" (i only know this because my cousins went to alaska a week ago) i am not quite sure why anyone would want it.

We keep it around to antagonize Texas. Plus it was filled with gold back in the day... Gold and polar bears.

Canada is sorry for James Cameron? JAMES CAMERON? That would be like Germany being sorry for Albert Einstein.

well i thought that was a flop
the video i mean not the country :D
