Yeah, IJ is working again.

As for the video, my inner SJW is headdesking, because it really doesn't say much when a developed nation is comparing itself with a third world country and saying, "Hey, at lease we're not that." And the only legitimate first world criticism is toward Japan. All the other "sucks" that the song mentioned about the other developing countries are either cultural (Italy), straight up bigotry (France - at least we're not French is not an actual criticism), subjective ("Europe" - I'll give up froyo for gelato any day), or admission actually it's pretty good (Canada).

Basically, I guess what I'm saying is the song stinks of America ego-centricism. >.>
