Who’s winning the YouTube election? Four hilarious videos lend some insight

Who’s winning the YouTube election? Four hilarious videos lend some insight

Elections are crazy times for many reasons, but one of our favourite parts of any big election is the onslaught of thousands of amateur video producers armed with little more than a laptop and a YouTube account. How is Canada’s latest election measuring up on this score? Here are some examples we’ve found that don’t involve works copyrighted by Yoko Ono.


It took us a while to find it, but here’s a video that’s pro-Conservative—or at least a video that echoes all the fear-mongering about the coalition, which is basically the same thing.


Who doesn’t love babies? This particular video seems to be urging us to vote Libertarian or something, but seriously, who doesn’t love babies? Oh, wait. (Apolitical version here.)


Women breaking up with Stephen Harper, exploring in some detail why he’s failed to connect with them on a personal level. We’re shocked to discover that somehow the Conservative leader isn’t connecting with women voters. It’s as if they didn’t like The Beatles or something.


“Very ethnic” voters attack with this video that’s a parody of a) Michael Jackson’s “Beat It”; b) Conservative campaign strategy; or c) both. It should definitely be viewed after lunch, unless there’s a decent selection of ethnic food carts near your workplace. Wait–that’s crazy talk.
