In the video, Canadian Ryan is dressed in the titular character’s costumer and is basically just wondering why Canada is not included in Eurovision.

His home country is “steeped in rich musical history” – because hello, Bieber.

“Our generous gift of Celine Dion alone should earn us an invite,” he adds.

“Don’t give me that crap about Canada not being part of the European family. You let in Australia and they’re barely on the planet.”

Way harsh, man!
