Take Off, Eh! Understanding the Great White North & More Moranis

LAist relies on your reader support, not paywalls.
Freely accessible local news is vital. Please power our reporters and help keep us independent with a donation today.

For those even the least bit uncertain about Canadian geography, Bob and Doug McKenzie are here to help befuddle you. Where does the Great White North begin and end? And who needs lines on a map to show the different...provinces? And why are we talking about a vintage SCTV clip today? Well, today's Video Lunch is honoring Rick Moranis, who is celebrating a birthday today, and Moranis is Bob in this goofy, loveable, super-Canadian duo.

Bonus clips: Moranis' 80s foray into rap with the "Girl from Ipanema" (yikes!), a Ghostbusters moment ("Okay, who brought the dog?"), and "Suddenly, Seymour" from the movie "Little Shop of Horrors." Happy birthday, Rick!
