(playful vocalizing) - So we've never been to Canada. - I've been! - Oh have you? - I've been twice. - Oh you, when? - But I was little. - You were young. - I don't really have memories. - We just want to include Canada a bit more. - Yeah. (chuckles) - Because we already talk about America and the UK. - We just leave them out, don't we? - Yeah, we do, but, - Yeah. - it's because there aren't many, like these articles, we're discussing an article by the way, on Huffington Post. But people don't tend to write about the differences between Canada and the UK. It's always America and the UK. So there's loads of stuff for us to do, to do with America. - So, we're just gonna tickle you, tickle you a bit today. - Yeah. Tease you. - Just tease you a little bit. And we're just gonna discuss the article, and say whether we think this is true or false. - Yeah. - Especially about the UK stuff. - Yeah, and if you're from Canada, and you're watching, go leave like a Canada flag emoji, or just be like, "I'm Canadian," in the comments, 'cause we'd be really interested to see how many of you are Canadian. - Say it just like that, "I'm Canadian!" - Yeah, "I'm Canadian!" (Lia laughs) Right, so the first one is that Canadians want you to have a nice day, whereas Brits want you to fail. - So it just goes back to the whole positivity thing. - Yeah. - That like, I know we've said it about Americans loads, and maybe Canadians are the same, in that they just genuinely want you to have a nice day. - I know. - But Brits don't really say, "Have a nice day." Or they might say it, but do they ever mean it? - I don't know. Obviously it's all a huge stereotype. - Yeah. - But Brits are nice people, but there is just that deep underlying thing where you just want someone to just fail at what they're doing. - (chuckling) Yeah. - I don't know why. - It's so weird. It's like embedded in Brits. - Yeah. - It's like, (sighs) it's like when you see someone really trying to do something at the gym, and you're like, "Just fall." - Yeah. I know. - (laughing) It's so bad! - About everything, and especially at the moment with politics and stuff , like the Prime Minister, everyone's just hoping that she'll fail, and it's like, it's so funny. - Oh no. I do actually feel really sorry for her. - I know. - I'm just like, imagine being you, you're like a cartoon character now. - I know, poor old woman. - Poor old TM. - Literally old woman. - Poor old woman. - She's aged years since being in that role. - That-- - Her posture's gone from this to this. - It literally has this now. - Yeah, poor woman. - Open up darling. - Open up Theresa May. - Have a nice-- (giggling) Open up TM. And have a nice day. - Yeah, TM the PM. - Yeah! (both laugh) The next one's about fish. Canadians eat sushi, and Brits like to deep fry their fish in batter, and have fish and chips. - Yeah. - Yeah. - I mean, is it a well-known thing then that Canadians are known for sushi? - Well it must be. Huffington Post is saying it. They say, "Stroll around Vancouver, "and you will notice swarms of health-conscious, "attractive people, lining up for their nearest sushi." - Wow, I thought sushi was Japanese. - Yeah, but. (laughs) Remember when we were in New York, and certain places, just like sushi everywhere? - Yeah, sushi everywhere. But to be honest, it's spread everywhere hasn't it? - Mm. - London's very sushi. We love sushi. - We do. - We'd be more likely to eat sushi than fish and chips. - I think so. - Yeah. - It's just more like on-the-go food. - Yeah. - We'd never be like, "Let's just get fish and chips quick," - No. - We're just not, that's not what we do. - Fish and chips would be like a treat, where you're like, "Oh my gosh, I should not be eating this battered fish." - Yeah, I'm about to consume like 4,000 calories, - Yeah. - in one little tiny tray of fish and chips. - Yeah. - So. - I also think it's generational. - Mm-hmm. - I think my grandparents, my parents' and grandparents' generation would eat fish and chips, whereas-- - Especially on a Friday. - Yeah. - Yeah. - Whereas we would be more likely to order sushi. - Oh, and we've done that. - Yeah. - We've done like, I've done delivery sushi to my house. - It's great. - So maybe we're a bit more Canadian. - I just hate sashimi. Anything with like raw fish or salmon. (gags) - Oh, I love salmon! Oh, nigiri. - Right, so the next one is that Canadians go out for one beer, whereas Brits will have six before even leaving the house. (chuckling) Which we've spoken about - It's so true, isn't it? - drinking before. - It's so true. - Yeah. - It's really bad. Like the whole - Yeah. - like pre-drinks, - I know, - the whole British attitude towards alcohol. - And if-- - It's like, "Oh I can't possibly go out and just have one." - No. - Why would anyone do, we would. - Yeah. 'Cause we're lightweights. - 'Cause that's all it takes. But there's just so many Brits that would just be like, "No, if I'm gonna drink, "I'm drinking to get drunk. - Yeah. Yeah. - "I'm not just "gonna have one, why would I do that, makes no sense." - We're probably making it worse as well by all the Prosecco. The amount of people, like we've said, that are just, like I did a video on my channel about my three addictions. - Oh yeah. - Pepsi Max, sugar, pizza. - Yeah. - And they were like, "What about Prosecco?" And I was like, "I'm not addicted to Prosecco." - Oh! - I'll have Prosecco maybe like twice a month or something, but, - Okay. - the perception we've put out there, - Yeah, the-- - is that we drink Prosecco every single day. (chuckling) - Like I get family members, hi Yaya, my grandma, (Joel laughs) watching, saying, "You need to really look at your drinking, "and you need to slow down and stop." And I'm like, "Oh it's part of a performance. "It's like a little character thing. - It's just our thing. - "It's just like, "it's our thing." - Yeah. - But it's not, it's not. So it's not a problem. - It's not a problem. - No one needs to worry. - We don't have a problem. - Saying that, I did have two glasses of Prosecco last night, but that was just for fun. - Yeah, do you know what? - What? - Last Saturday, - Yeah. - I went to see my friends near where my parents from in Hampshires. - Yes! - They've just moved there. - Yes. - A glass of Prosecco, guess how much. - Seven pounds. - Three pound 95. - Stop. - Three pound 95! - Stop! - Yeah! - Stop. - So cheap! It's a minimum of like seven pounds in London, isn't it? - (laughing) Oh I thought you were gonna say, "It's a minimum of seven on card, "so I had to buy like five." - Oh right. So I had to buy two. (both chuckle) - So the next one is that Canadians think that Britain is a place of magical castles and royalty, and Brits think that Canada is basically just America. (Joel laughs) So, - Which is kinda true. - It's kinda true. - I mean, that is true, because Canada, I've learned, Canada is America. We Brits call the US America. - Yeah. - And then, Mexico is something different, Canada is something different, but it's all America, apparently. So technically we're right. - But isn't that, isn't that offensive? Is it offensive to call, - No that's true. That's the continent is America. - Oh! - All like North America. - So why have they got a problem with that? - Yeah. (Lia laughs) Get over it. - Get over it. Guys, seriously. - I know. - Canadians get triggered, - They do. Do you remember that audition? - when they get called American. (gasps) - And everyone there was American, except me and Lia, and a couple of Canadians. - Yeah. - And I said something like that. I was like, "Everyone here's American," they were like, "I'm Canadian." - "I'm Canadian." - I was like, "Well you sound American." (laughs) - It was amazing, that was so funny. We haven't heard back from that, have we? - No. - No. - It's probably 'cause we insulted the Canadians. (both laugh) - It's probably why, probably why we didn't get the job. - I know, but the UK definitely isn't, I mean, actually, I was gonna say it definitely isn't full of castles, but it definitely is full of castles. - Oh there's loads. We were looking at some - Yeah. - the other day online, weren't we? - Yeah were were gonna stay in a castle. - (laughing) Do some filming there. - Literally it's just so normal, you're just like, - Just to perpetuate that - castle. - idea more. (both laugh) - Yeah. - Amazing. - But it definitely doesn't feel magical. - No, I don't think so. Though there's some, there's a little bit of magic. - Yeah. - If you go to places like Edinburgh, you're like, "Ooh, this feels quite Harry Pottery." - Yeah. - But they're, no. - No. - Not much, no magic really.
