Hi everyone, I thought weโ€™d go big picture with this Honest Government Ad and see how much shitfuckery we could include in this overview of the worldโ€™s response to the pandemic. Hope you enjoy the ride. (PS. Thank you to everyone who translated the video!)

In Kenya, our capital city (Nairobi) has been so polluted that no one knew until recently that you could see the highest mountain in Kenya from the city.

Have you ever considered doing this with some other countries? I mean, the same level of analysis you usually do on Australia. I truly believe you'd have so much success doing it. This channel's team is genius, daring, informed and altruistic. That's a really rare mix to have on the same group of people and I think you could achieve so much more. Take Portugal as an example, you'd have "shitloads" of material to work with. Same goes for many other countries. The world would apreciate the eyeopenings you would provide, as it already does :) .
Thank you very much for speaking up and for doing it so cleverly. Keep up with the good work! Best wishes to thejuicemedia team! :)

"Backward countries and failed states' . . . . . . Noone expressed surprise where that went . . . . .

When crime takes the situation more seriously than the government you have a problem.

Love the "And in New Zealand we depressed the world by reminding you that this is not your leader." Made me feel pretty patriotic!

When she said โ€œbackwards counties...โ€ I knew it would be followed by โ€œUnited Statesโ€ how embarrassing ๐Ÿ˜”

Excellent work all around, especially when pointing to New Zealand as an example that electing a human being as President, instead of, say, an orange baboon, or a "sentient ham", can have a lot of benefits.
