In a Riff on Donald Trump’s Slogan, Canadians Tells Their Neighbors That America Is Great (Video)
In a viral clip that highlights some of the things that Donald Trump wants to get rid of (diversity, for one), a bunch of friendly Canadians tell Americans some of the reasons they think their southern neighbor is pretty darn great. The video, part of a campaign called “Let’s Tell America It’s Great,” was made by Toronto creative agency The Garden.
Now, that’s not to say the country is perfect, that it hasn’t done its fair share of not-so-great things, or that Trump supporters don’t have legitimate grievances, but rather that the U.S. has done some good stuff that maybe, just maybe, we don’t want to undo in coming years.
Other Canadians, not featured in the clip, took to Twitter using the hashtag #TellAmericaItsGreat to pile on some more compliments, which you can take a look at here: #tellamericaitsgreat Tweets.
