If You Haven’t Fallen In Love With Canada Yet, Watch This Video And Say Goodbye to Your Heart

Canada should be renamed Adventureland due to all of the fun and exciting things you can do here, something we often forget. City life can overshadow a life-changing experience only a few miles away in the great outdoors.

An English boy and his digital camera made this video and captured what you might be missing by not being here or waiting in traffic. Masterfully shot, the videographer encapsulated the beauty of nature and thrill of living in this great country in this special video montage including scenes of British Columbia and Vancouver. I hope you like it!

If You’re Racist in Canada You Will Literally Get Punched In The Face

A Canadian filmmaker took to the streets of Hamilton, ON to conduct a social experiment following the shootings in Ottawa to see if perceptions changed after the horrific event.

Despite new fears imposed by media of rising terrorism in Canada, citizens of our great country remain unfazed and firm in their beliefs that racism of any sort has no place in Canada. So true to their values, Canadians will challenge you and even give you a cheap shot right in the nose as this filmmaker found out.

Despite having a bloody nose, the social experiment was an astounding success proving how we will always stand on guard for thee.

Words Can’t Describe How Beautiful British Columbia Is But This Video Will

Filmed in ultra-high resolution, this video shot in the in the Great Bear Rainforest located on the central coast of British Columbia captures the tranquil beauty of our great province.

Your Fantasy Of Eating Sushi Off A Naked Woman In Vancouver Is Now A Reality

If you’re hosting a private event, bachelor party or you’re an Japanese gang member with a lot of tattoos and missing a pinky finger, eating sushi off a naked woman may just be the thing to get your evening going.

Naked Sushi is an established catering company now open for business in Vancouver offering Nyotaimori, the Japanese practice of serving sushi on a naked woman’s body.

naked-sushi-1As with anything Japanese, Nyotaimori is considered an artform. A woman is trained to lie down for hours without moving and withstand the prolonged exposure to the cold sushi.

Before service, the individual takes a bath using a special fragrance-free soap and then finished off with a splash of cold water to chill the body down for the sushi.


Seeing how Vancouver Coastal Health doesn’t allow medium rare burgers, we would be surprised if this form of food presentation is allowed in the city. However, as the underground dining scene rises, this novelty catering service can elude regulation.


For more information or to contact Naked Sushi to arrange an evening of eating sushi off a naked lady, visit their website at

This May Be The Greatest Vancouver Fireworks Video Ever

Taking your $3,000 Canon 5D camera, mounting it on a tripod and waiting until 10:00 pm to film the Celebration of Lights fireworks now seems rather basic compared to the effort put into this clip.

Man Defies Death To Capture This Vancouver Timelapse Video

Videographer Ryan Emond went to death-defying heights to capture Vancouver from up above for this extraordinary timelapse video. Climbing atop of the Lions Gate Bridge, Ryan films a lively city in constant motion. It’s truly a masterpiece and one of the best videos of Vancouver ever captured on film.

From Ryan’s Vimeo video:
Last summer I spent 6 weeks exploring the city of Vancouver. I went there with the intention of learning some new skills in a fresh place. I was completely captivated by the beauty of this city, and the constant adventures it provided me.

Flowing from the ground to the top of the Lions Gate Bridge, I aim to show you an unseen view.
