Hockey players and maple syrup. Must be news about Canada as an American would report it. In a new video on EPN’s Twitch account, Nintendo of America President Reggie Fils-Aime takes to his comedy shtick and the common Canadian stereotypes to announce a brand new Super Smash Club up in Canada.
Reggie is bummed that he is so terrible at Super Smash Bros. for the Nintendo 3DS, and he ponders how he can get better people to practice with. Enter the most stereotypical Canadian hockey player ever delivering him pancakes and maple syrup. Chowing down on his massive breakfast inspires Reggie to invite Canadians into a new exclusive Super Smash Club, so he can play with the best the Great White North has to offer.
It’s silly and cheeky, and Reggie always has a natural knack for being the straight man in a comedy routine. He also drops his popular line “not my problem,” when speaking on the phone in the skit’s opening seconds.
Almost makes me wish I was Canadian so I can join in on the fun. I wonder if I would be offended by these stereotypes.
