In the episode Coon vs Coon and Friends, they had this thing where they made fun of Justin Beiber by killing him off. And then it hit. This will be one of final posts before I hit the road for good, not just from SP Studio (I have a thread in Off Topic Discussion that will explain)

But has anyone ever wondered why he didn't look Canadian in that episode? Considering he's Canadian?

Its been brought up before. No one really knows for sure. It's been done with other Canadian celebs too. Dunno if the design team just forgot they were Canadian or what.

If you're a Canadian celebrity like Bieber or Edge (the wrestler, that is), you get to look normal.

I never bought that explanation, given the celine dion thing. I know she's well known as a canadian, compared to Bieber.

It just depends on what M and T felt like when they made them. Any in-universe explanation, fun as they can be to invent, is made up after the fact and probably BS as M and T almost don't follow any rules and that's why we love'em I guess XD

Maybe God can be on both sides of the gun.

The good thing is I won $1,000 when I entered that rap battle in Detroit. I leave at 1800 hours. That's when the next bus to West Virginia leaves.

She first appeared in "Not Without My Anus" where even the Iraqis "looked" Canadian (only the Americans looked American), so she got stuck with the look.

I just don't think they check where celebrities were born before including them. They, like many other people, probably just assumed he was American.

It also made it easier for Cthulhu to eat Justin Bieber at the Staples' Center with a "normal" head than a two-piece Canadian head ;)
