Some times I am ashamed to call myself American!

I just saw this on my old neighbours facebook page with a comment from him that says "Can I get a beee- YAH!!!!".



http://www.break.com/inde...sucks.html


I guess the video would hold more clout if it did not make so many untrue statements.
Come on America, surely we can do better than this????

Happy Independence Day to most Americans except the idiot that made this video.. oh and my ex-neighbour. TWAT!




For pete's sake.. before anyone else says it. I know that it is sattire. The sad part is that the person that posted it believes all of this and acts like this IRL.

I have a sense of humour. I just find this video tasteless.
That's all!

There are many ways to show your patriotism to your country.

I get sarcasm, trust me. I can be very sarcastic myself.
I guess I just find it typical US humour played out time and time again.
Just don't find it funny.

Another reason that most of the rest of the world hates Americans and the image they project. Most Americans would be up in arms if anyone did a video at them in that way. They sure are good at dishing it out but when it comes to taking it back they suck "old man balls".
It is so humerous to watch the responses here and see how they hate to be critisized in any way. Too funny to watch.

At the end of it all....you people voted Bush in twice so the rest of the world is having the last laugh. wink

I guess it is all about perspective. I lived in the states all of my life and now live in the UK. That video is exactly how they perceive ALL of us to be. Mainly because that is how some Americans act on TV . I find that kind of humour tiring and just reinforces the stereotypes.
Most Americans are so much funnier and genuinely good ppl but I think ppl that are outside of the US do not see those ppl as typical.

That was hilarious. The best line was about invading another country and telling it what kind of government to have. falloff

Hehehe. I love humour that alot of people think is one way, but it's really the other way 'round. This is kinda anti-American.

I like it. I could do with out the one of the 'jokes'but the rest of it was funny.

I would say it is exactly not how we think ALL of you 'are'. This kind of self critism is not so typical for Americans in my opinion.

I love you Val, but I thought the video was hilarious. lol

It was obviously totally tongue-in-cheek. Listen to the part where he talks about England "coming into our country, stealing our resources, and telling us what kind of government to have -- what kind of country does that??" Uh, America! lol It was poking fun at the USA as much as anything else.

And when he punched the dude out for buying a scone, I nearly pissed myself laughing.

I guess I just find it old humour... like back when they had to rename french fries.
I think I lived in the south too long and was constantly surrounded by ppl just like that guy...like my neighour as well.
Now that I live in England, ppl here really think Americans act that way.
I hear it all of the time..almost daily.

I know what you mean. hug And I'm sure being an American overseas right now sucks and creates some sensitivity. But I'm fairly certain it's actually poking fun at the Freedom Fries people. Come on: Freedom Bag Water?
