A Canadian TikToker Went Viral For His Hilarious & Absolutely Fake 'Weird Canada Facts'

Maybe one day forks won't be illegal in Canada. 🙃

If you didn't learn these Canadian facts in school, it's probably because they're all very, very untrue.

However, that hasn't stopped Taylor Jackson, a Canadian TikToker and photographer in Kitchener/Waterloo, from going viral, either because people who aren't from Canada believe his wild tales or because Canadians are impressed by how much trouble he's gone to for making these fake facts seem true.

Jackson's most popular and viral video is about how forks are illegal in Canada, proving his point by showing a half-empty cutlery draw and some (well-edited) Amazon and Wikipedia pages.

The video blew up on the app, garnering over 10 million views and over 24,000 comments in a few months.

The TikTok comments are a mix of very confused people ("IS THIS TRUE???" one commenter asks) and people happy to play along with the joke ("My cousin made a fork out of tinfoil and he got arrested," another writes).

Other viral "Weird Canada Facts" include how iced coffee is illegal here (Stephen Harper wouldn't cough up the extra dough to buy "iced coffee beans," Jackson explains) and that the entire Canadian government is now sponsored by KFC (bringing an additional $300 million in revenue to the country).

The facts might be bogus, but Jackson's videos are truly hilarious. Canadians might not be learning anything, but at least we're confusing a few Americans!
