Hey-yo, hey-yo, hey-yo Hey-yo Hey-yo! ♪ TV HOST: Canadian citizens pitch their ideas to a panel of government bureaucrats who have the budgets and authority to make it happen.
Let's see who makes it through the Beaver's Dam.
BEN: Thank you, Beavers.
I'm excited to be here.
PRIME MINISTER: So, what do you have for us, Ben? BEN: Water.
- BEN: It's boring.
In cities across this country, it just flows from the tap.
It does nothing.
But what if your water Did something? MINISTER: Well, Vancouver and Toronto have been asking for their water to do something for years.
PRIME MINISTER: I'm intrigued.
BEN: My water is infused with THM, and I think it should be rolled out in cities across this country.
PRIME MINISTER: THM? I've heard of that somewhere.
MINISTER: It's like CBD-infused water, right? BEN: THM is trihalomethanes.
FINANCE MINISTER: Sounds European.
BEN: Please, give it a try.
MINISTER: Is that poison? BEN: Yes, it is.
BEN: THM is the disinfecting chemical found in chlorine.
MINISTER: I knew it tasted like pool! FINANCE MINISTER: Why'd you make it so fun with the logo and stuff? BEN: How else are we supposed to make you people pay attention? [DRAMATIC MUSIC.]
BEN: My reservation has been dealing with a boil water advisory forever.
- Yeah, that file's been on my desk for a few terms now, huh? BEN: We're sick and tired of being ignored.
Imagine if this were happening in Vancouver or Toronto.
PM: Wait, is it happening in Toronto or Vancouver? BEN: No, it's not.
But if it was, it would be dealt with immediately.
This is happening where I live, and we need it fixed now.
FRANCO: So what do you want from us? BEN: What I'm asking for is the government to take 100% responsibility, with an initial investment of whatever it takes.
BEN: But you're the prime minister! PRIME MINISTER: I know, but there's like a whole other building filled with people I gotta run this stuff by to, and it's ugh! MINISTER: As the Minister of Ministries, I agree.
BEN: Okay, how about a deal between - the Minister of Ministries - MINISTER: Hmm! BEN: And the Finance Minister? In exchange for doing this work, you'll receive full first nations support in the upcoming election.
PRIME MINISTER: And I'm back in.
All I want is for you to be cool with me wearing a headdress again.
I just need to know, is this water gonna make us sick? BEN: As sick as it'll make anyone.
FRANCO: Okay, then we're out.
- Mounties? - [DRAMATIC MUSIC.]
BEN: I just want to thank you, Beavers, for this opportunity, and I want to let you know that I urinated in your water! That wasn't pool, that was piss! Ha-ha! PRIME MINISTER: I knew it tasted familiar.
FRANCO: And I'm back in.

KODY: No! No! [SIGHS.]
I smoke weed and play video games.
It's all I do now.
I've logged over eleven months on GunKill: Battle Royale.
I've smoked over 2,500 joints.
All because the government asked me to stay home to save lives.
So I guess that kinda makes me a hero.
No You're the hero.
But isn't that something a hero would say? This planet experienced a tragedy, and tragedies require people like me, heroes, to save everyone.
Am I a first responder? No, but smoking weed and playing video games was my first response.
It's been a year since the country reopened.
Normal life has returned.
Yet I'm still here, doing more than what's being asked of me.
A true hero.
So if you'll excuse me, I've already been away too long.
I have to smoke this weed.
I have to play that video game.
You're all counting on me.

♪ ♪ DEVIL: Ugh! TIM: Hey, Devil, quick question? DEVIL: You guys really made a mess of this thing.
Why is there so much meat in the sink? TIM: We thought that was a garborator.
DEVIL: This is the most disgusting thing I've ever seen, and I literally live in hell.
Okay, what do you want? TIM: Well, I was just wondering, how much do you think my soul is worth? Like if I hypothetically want to be rich and famous one day, could I afford it? DEVIL: One of those kind of question, huh? - [DRAMATIC MUSIC.]
- DEVIL: Alright.
Let's see what we got here.
You want to sell your soul? Ooh, hmm.
I hate to be the one to break it to you, but, uh Your soul is basically worthless.
TIM: Oh, man! DEVIL: I can't even get a cup of coffee with that.
TIM: Well, there must be Something I can get for it.
Let me think.
TIM: Hey, guys, big news.
I just sold my soul for a pack of sour keys.

BOYZ: Huh! TIM: Blech! Too sour.
♪ When the pandemic kicked, my gym shuted down.
All my gains disappeared quicker than toilet paper at the stores.
But I understand we all need to make sacrifices in order to lower the curve and protect one another.
I tried lifting in here, but the thud of the weights and my guttural grunts annoyed the neighbours, so I figured, for the sake of everyone's mental health, I'd give that up, too.
And the weights were gettin' kinda heavy.
I haven't done any physical activity in months.
With hospitals already stretched to their limits, it'd be irresponsible to risk pulling a muscle and needing to seek medical attention.
- It's one of my core beliefs, that we all have to do our part.
My part includes not using my core.
When my country asked, I did what I had to do, which was nothing.
I stood up for my nation by laying down, because that's what heroes do.
VOICEOVER: This has been another hero of the pandemic.

CRUZ: See you next time.
- DELIVERYMAN: Whatever, dude.
CRUZ: Like everyone, I was losing my Goddamned mind during the pandemic.
Then I lost my job, so I had to turn to my community for help.
That's when I decided to become one of those guys who steals packages off their neighbour's porch.
It's not just the thrill, stealing other people's stuff has given my life meaning again.
After accumulating dozens and dozens of deliveries, my shed, which I also stole, was filled to the brim, so I needed a new high.
That's when I decided to Robin hood it and give back to the community.
Does it cause chaos? Yes! But I'm proud to be a Robin hooding porch pirate.
I'm taking away needless purchases from my neighbours, and if that doesn't make me a hero, I don't know what does.
