Stephen Colbert is feeling as antsy about the upcoming United States presidential election as his fellow Americans.
And his solution seems to be the same, too: flee to Canada.
Colbert actually consulted a Canadian immigration lawyer on "The Late Show with Stephen Colbert," Thursday night. From the looks of it, his plans of escaping to the Great White North after Nov. 8 were dashed after their meeting.
Contrary to what you may think, the problem wasn't him trying to pass Ryan Gosling's photo as his own. (Nice try, but your eyes aren't blue Stephen, and he's already a Canadian citizen.)
It was the citizenship test that cut his journey to Canada short. (And possibly the vague response regarding his criminal record.)
"So, am I a citizen now?"
Passing the citizenship test is one of the requirements folks must meet before they can officially become a citizen of Canada. The lawyer gave Colbert a taste of the questions he would be facing.
And although the late-night host tried to earn brownie points by belting Gordon Lightfoot, it wasn't enough.
"So, am I a citizen now?" he asked the immigration lawyer.
Spoiler alert: it was a no on all fronts.
But that doesn't mean we don't still love you as a neighbour, Stephen.
Check out the video above and see just how badly he failed.
