americans: comment on this vid

Could American members please comment on this vid?

Are there really people this dense in the US or do you think its a setup?

EDIT: 12/06/07
Since people are not reading the whole thread, I would like to point out that it doesn't shock me that there are uneducated people everywhere, I'm well aware of that.

What shocks me is that these people are not stereotypical 'chavs', they appear (to me) as ordinary middle class people who you would expect to know such fundamental things as the religion of Israel, considering that Israel's existence is not possible without American support.

    I'm american. Those people are so stupid. I knew every single question. Yes some americans are dumb. Alot of people just care about making money and getting laid. The education system here is poor unlike the europeans.

    OH MY GOD They are so dumb, especially with the world map faking out that australia was north korea or france. And the old guy who said 3 world wars! WTF he was born during WWII he should have known.

    I know a ton of world history.

    We're taught world history, but many don't care.

    Exactly, every country would have folk who couldn't answer questions like that, don't really see the point of it myself.

    LMFAO.

    Interviewer- 'Can you name a country that begins with U?'

    Person- 'Ermmmmm.............'

    Interviewer- 'What about United states of America?'




    To be fair, England is exactly the same. Rest of Europe isnt though I dont think.

    Americans are becoming dumber by the day. Unfortunately, education is going down the toilet for many reasons. I could go on with a diatribe as to why, but I really cannot be bothered to do so.

    It is quite sad really!

    True - Tons of Americans..especially the newer generation do not pursue further education nor watch the news
    Foreign history at a high school level is not a staple..or at least it was not when I was going. Most of what I've learned about other countries...aside from historical events I learned from world news, internet...MUSCLETALK
    It is predominate with the more econiomically challenged. I mean if you are a parent and would rather watch Jerry Springer than the news then you kids stand a good chance of becoming like you.. Poverty, gangs..just a genuine decline is society plays a very large.
    They would rather play videos games and party...not that theirs anything wrong with that now and then,,
    Anyone with half a wit that paid attention to current events and such could answer most of those questions.
    and not to be too political, but I would speculate 1/2 of people living here are immigrants

    I think if you did the same kind of thing on some of Britains sink estates you would get very similar answers. Bit unfair really.

    My Finacee is American and I have loads of American friends. I've never met any as daft as those in the clip. They wouldn't have become the most powerful country on the planet if they were all dumb.

    You did gain far too much fat though,I mean,you're not muscular at all,you're just a fat mess.

    I love America, England should dump Europe and become an American state, then we should start a war with Europe and kick their asses.

    Thats a fair point, but in Ireland I could pick them out from a mile away.
    Pretty much the same thing in England, just look for a burberry cap and listen for a scummy accent.

    The thing that surprised me was that those people seemed like Middle class people to me, not your average scumbag loser. I would have expected those people to know questions such as "what is the religion of Israel?"

    Agree totally , if you went to ANY city , in ANY country , and filmed for long enough , you could make a film like that

    But as I already said, they will generally fit the stereotype which is not the case in this instance.
