It gives us something to laugh, but also something to think

It is amazing...the height of intelligence equivalent to a dish rag!! It's a great example of the type of people that live in every country, all over the world. While people laugh at what 'the funny man from the states just said', they don't always stop to contemplate that they have the same under/mis-educated person right in their own house, or next door. Most times people are too busy laughing at the stereotype to look around.

Why does this happen?

Is it crappy high school classes, or human ignorance? I mean, for the love of God, we have more communications, media and technology that happy global warming can stand!!

Agh! Turning into a raaaannt....running awaaayy!!

Hello Latarina;)

I think, people like to pick on Americans, because we feel resentful, about the influence they have on the world. Complaining about them, is a way to release the frustration we have, about the US wielding the economic stick over us, for so long.

Quoting Mel.

And those people are allowed to vote?????

I don't like stereotypes and I have to admit that I haven't been in the USA nor I know enough northamericans to form a criteria for myself. But there is something that is true...

Maybe people from, to pick something randomly... Paraguay, are as or more ignorant than the people of the video, but somebody made a video of Americans and uploaded it in the web, and I doubt somebody did the same with Paraguayan people, because Paraguay doesn't have the same economic and political influence over the world, and Paraguay didn't started any war.

A personal opinion. I'm not planning to start a political controversy here.

Nice video, the only thing is: if you take time enough to do these interviews you can make a film like this everywhere.

We're a huge country. We have lots of dumb people walking around, and some governing us; but I think most would agree there are more than a few smart ones too. I agree with Latarina and Catu, you could probably make a video like this in any country in the world; but we're a fun and easy target. Jay Leno does the same bit on late night TV here in the States and it is a bit shocking how incredibly stupid and/or uniformed people can be.

But then, Uruguay came to my mind before United States of America, so not sure what that says about me.
