It's Friday, June 28th and that means that Canada Day long weekend is finally upon us! People all across the country will be spending the next few days drinking on patios, going camping with their friends and family, and of course, wearing tons of red. Canadians tend to take this holiday pretty seriously, but it seems that a lot of Americans don't really get it. YouTuber explains Canada Day to Americans and it's the best thing you'll see all day.\nIf you haven't heard of Brittlestar, let me be the first to tell you that you've been missing out. His real name is Stewart Reynolds, and he calls himself "the internet's favourite dad".\nView this post on Instagram When I was 17 I came to London for the first time. This trip saw me having to do a live broadcast for back home in Canada from CTV’s Camden Town studios (about an hour after this Covent Garden pic was taken). Teenage me would think that was pretty cool.

The video shows Brittlestar talking to his neighbour, an American, about why exactly we celebrate the holiday.\nThe American neighbour is confused, as he doesn't believe that Canada actually has anything to celebrate. Brittlestar is quick to prove him wrong though, and goes on to list things like maternity leave, universal healthcare, and of course, poutine!\nEXPLAINING CANADA DAY TO AMERICANS✌️❤️🇨🇦#CanadaDay pic.twitter.com/Owy7yjbku7— Brittlestar (@brittlestar) June 28, 2019\nThings like the metric system, bagged milk, and butter tarts also made the list of things Brittlestar thinks Canada should celebrate on this historic holiday. He also threw a hilarious roast at American beer in the video saying, "And beer, ACTUAL beer. Not yellow water, beer. And lots of it."\nView this post on Instagram Zipping along in the Skytrain in Vancouver for the Behind The Headlines panel on @ctvnews w/ @bevthomson @richardcrouse and @samkj27 A post shared by Brittlestar (@brittlestar) on Jun 5, 2019 at 9:57am PDT\nCanadians are absolutely loving the video, and leaving lots of positive comments:\nPure gold!!!!!
