It all started when Trudeau took to Twitter to post a nearly two-minute video clip picturing the Prime Minister in front of holiday decorations and a Canadian flag set up in the background. While Trudeau is usually good in front of cameras, the video has a similar awkward air as that Stephen Harper video from 2015 where he talked about Netflix and Breaking Bad *shudder*

Clearly, the possibility of a 'happy new year' message may be in jeopardy considering the response to this holiday message!
