Drat! Thanks, Char. If you do a search for “Talking to Americans” (include the quotes), it will bring up a list of a bunch of episodes. The French jokes are pretty funny.

Hmmm, well, I’d say he pretty much summed up America through his vast American interviewees HAHAHAHAHA!!!  I feel so MUCH better now.  I’ve always been confused, and now I’m more confused!  When were the film footages taken though….aren’t those the Twin Towers being flown over in the first five minutes???

That was actually just stock footage.  Those were the Twin Towers in Canada that the U.S. gave them permissions to copy and build in Edmonton.  I think they call them the “Canuck Towers.” wink

The five segments appear to have been done between 2001-2.  That is one of the most hilarious programs I have ever seen.  In segment 5 - just scroll down - he even got George W. Bush.

In the fifth one, the kid who says “Canada has provinces” sounds like he was told to.
