OMG, that was absolutely hilarious!!

But I am sure that there are many intelligent people there in the US too as they would not have got to the position they are in with monkeys like that!

I have no idea about these people though! Where on earth were they found!! My 4 year old nephew could probably answer half of those questions!

The US needs to launch a new war, a war to eradicate stupidness! ;)

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

even someone who doesn't know the country's place on the map while wishing war against it?

I think the video, was intended as a joke, and not as an accurate study of a cross section of Americans, from different backrounds.;)

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.

I think it is usually considered OK, to make fun of people who are in the lucky position of top of the pecking order. If the same video was made, about people in a third world country, is would be considered in very poor taste. ;)

Often people dont have to be intelligent, to get into high places. Being ruthless gets them there much faster. ;)

I do like China, Stuthkfl, but I dont like the Chinese government(the Peoples Republic of China government, that is).
No I wont believe u. I prefer to find my information, from human rights organisations. The US is not doing more torture, than China is. I am no fan, of the US government, but they do not torture their citizens, like the Chinese government do. Yes, the US government has become a mad dog, with its war mongering. But, I think that situation is likely to stop a lot sooner, than the situation, in China. ;)

You are absolutely right!!

I think that is one of the reasons why the world is in such a state! :(
