A Vancouver comedy duo has teamed up once again to lampoon the dramedy of American politics by announcing Canada’s candidacy for president of the United States.
Four years after their first mock “Canada Party” ad, comedians Brian Calvert and Chris Cannon uploaded a video to YouTube on Monday, saying, “And I think I speak for all Canadians when I say, what the f*ck?”
Calvert, who stars in the video, weaves in jokes ridiculing an U.S. election campaign characterized the world over by anything Donald Trump says or does.
He also squeezes in obligatory pot shots at the country’s race relations, health care, and at Canada’s own “prime minister centrefold.”
“Now we were a little disappointed when you didn’t elect us in 2012,” Calvert said. “But we’re Canada, so we just went to the doctor and got our feelings checked for free.”
Calvert and Cannon have also written a humour book about how America can benefit by putting a little Canada love in its heart. The Globe and Mail called the pair’s book a “beguiling little bagatelle in a dispiriting political year” when it was published in 2012.
