Canada, concerned about the significant lead the United States has in the race for outlandish campaign materials, has unleashed Wyatt Scott. Behold:

Scott is an independent candidate running for parliament in the newly-created Mission-Matsqui-Fraser Canyon riding (that's an electoral district) in British Columbia. His video has been waiting desperately for online attention since mid-June, a full month and a half before a Canadian federal election was called on August 2.

In the video, Scott Rides a giant goose, wields a giant sword, and destroys a giant robot emblazoned with the logo of Canada's Conservative Party.

If you are shocked to learn there's a Canadian election happening, some news: there's a Canadian election happening! It'll take place on October 19, which gives candidates an unusually long time to campaign. And, apparently, make campaign videos.
