17 year-old Ashley in Santa Clarita, California, wrote to me asking if she could post the "Canada vs.America" epsiode of my show Cute with Chris on Break.com. I said sure.
For those of you who haven't seen it, that episode pokes fun at the ongoing culture debate between Canada and America by asking people to vote on kittens.
I didn't think anyone on Break.com would be interested in watching a clip about kittens. I won't say the Break audience is exclusively male but the average video on that site usually features a topless girl, a motorcycle crash, or a pipe bomb placed in an unsuspecting household appliance. Just out of curiosity, I entered "kittens" in the Break search engine. It brought up a picture of a cat in a blender.
Although the nuances were lost on most of the guys who actually watched the video, I was surprised to see that it has racked up 150,000 views in less than a week. Perhaps you'll enjoy the viewer comments as much as I did. You can read a selection by clicking the graphic on the left.
I guess some people are very passionate about the heritage of their nation's kittens.
Here's the video. "Canada vs. America; Whose Kittens are Better?"
