O Canada: Take Off

Bob & Doug McKenzie feat. Geddy Lee - Take Off


On the sketch comedy show SCTV, in the motion picture Strange Brew and across two albums, Rick Moranis and Dave Thomas (as brothers Bob and Doug McKenzie respectively) lovingly exploited every single Canadian stereotype you can think of. With great success too - the McKenzies became a big hit, proving that Canadians have a great sense of humor about themselves.

Take Off (which is barely even a song, just the brothers bickering and Geddy Lee from Rush popping up every now and then to sing the chorus) became a hit in 1982 and made it to #16 on the Billboard chart.
