Canadian comedian Rick Mercer has a weekly show up in his homeland called Rick Mercer Report, but he may be most well known for his time on the show, This Hour Has 22 Minutes.  Now in its third season, his current program features parody ads each week, and he recently decided to do a somewhat honest one about Research In Motion (RIM) the company behind the BlackBerry line of phones.

While funny, he raises a truthful point: The Canadian government is heavily invested in RIM.  With declining sales, and the BlackBerry PlayBook not living up to expectations, it could be bad for the whole country should the company fail.

Either way, still funny.
