Don't blame Canada.

Republicans, as one MIT professor already professed, are a pretty serious danger to the future of human existence. In a surprising move of futurism, Marco Rubio has seemingly followed this damning summation with a new campaign ad calling for global unity and the end of nationalism by boldly featuring a breathtaking shot of Vancouver, Canada in the clip's opening moments. Sadly, dude did it all unintentionally:

"It's morning again in America," the seemingly out-of-breath narrator announces as a pretty obvious shot of Vancouver slides across the screen. "Today, more men and women are out of work than ever before in our nation's history." Rubio's ad then proceeds to follow the usual GOP format of blaming vaguely American problems on President Barack Obama, bafflingly ignoring the fact that Canada just made a pretty memorable cameo in this monstrosity:

"It's a good-looking video, no doubt, but it's pretty recognizable as Vancouver," Guy Chavasse, a freelance videographer who shot the stock Vancouver footage back in August, tells CBC. Adding that he's "not exactly a big Republican fan or a Rubio supporter," Chavasse admitted it's still "cool to see your stuff being used."

As for how much this Canadian flex footage cost the Rubio campaign, Chavasse estimates they were able to score it on the low for about 80 bucks. According to the Chicago Tribune, a Rubio spokesperson confirmed they had no plans to make Canada "an issue" in the ongoing (and quite depressing) White House race.

The next time you're putting together a new campaign ad using iMovie, maybe give your guy Ted Cruz a call. He's a master of hilariously botching such videos with two of America's favorite pastimes: porn and bad spelling skills.
