Hello. I make very silly educational videos.

UNFINISHED LONDON
A show about London's quirky, unexplained unbuilt infrastructure, exploring bridges over nothing, tunnels to nowhere, and borders that don't make any sense.

MAP MEN
Me and Mark Cooper-Jones (the comedian off the telly who used to be a geography teacher and really loves geography) team up to talk about the world's weirdest/funniest/interestingest maps.

POLITICS UNBORINGED
What does the Prime Minister do? Who does the government? What does Right Honourable mean? If you don't understand the first thing about British politics, but you want to, this series was made for you.

VARIOUS OTHER THINGS
Various other things.

  • I like how the advertisement had local pricing next to national flags, for localization. Almost like council street signs.

  • I DON'T KNOW BUT FUCK I WILL LISTEN AND SOMEHOW BECOME INTERESTED, INFORMED AND AMUSED IN THE PROCESS.

  • It would be good if there were train routes along all those old 4 circular motorway routes. Currently to travel in a circular motion around the city, you have to travel into the city centre and then out again if you want to go by train. Journeys like St Albans to Hoddesdon are 40 minute car journeys but would be over two hours by train which is what's ridiculous.

  • Well I just refound this in a playlist from ages ago why does it still hit so hard 🙈 fair play it's an awesome song 🥰😂😭😂😭😂

  • Crich tramway museum is a great place to see all the old timey trams!!

  • he looks american, the trous add to that

  • Leeds.

  • Every state in America be like .... am i joke to you

  • Lucas was born in Paddington. What an absolute turn coat.

  • Welcome to london

  • ''America''...

  • American, American, Italy

  • 2:37 I'm from New Zealand, and thats not true. Everyone outside of Auckland (main city north island) meme about Aucklanders as 'jafa's but not in a serious way. Jafa stands for 'just another fucking Aucklander', but don't actually get treated differently and aren't hated. But this meme is even shared around the whole of the North Island, outside of Auckland. There isn't any bad feelings for anyone from the other island, in fact it only makes them more interesting to locals for a conversation.

  • Lol @ note.

  • 3:10 is that hiccup from httyd(how to train your dragon) or is it just me

  • Our Graham 😂

  • Pure gold right here: 0:36

  • The fact that this was Jay’s first video says a lot about him

  • When the Antarctic Treaty expires,another war is going to happen

  • At 4:35 you can see Mad Cap'n Tom. He is Tom Scott, a youtuber Jay has collaborated with before who is also British. He has a whole series of videos explaining the idea of Mad Cap'n Tom.

  • In the United States the most common reason I see is the "I HATE ALL OF THEM!!!" Reason but that might just be an east coast thing idk.

  • August the 1th?

  • Always fun to see jay in your area in these videos

  • Pretty good song ngl

  • Well done and most amusing. However Trump and his Neo Not Sees might hate you for it. Those overflowing sewers and dirty toilets have no senses of humor.

  • If the Continent was named "America" after Americo Vespucci and the FIRST MAPS call the whole CONTINENT of AMERICA this means that A SINGLE COUNTRY (US) APPROPRIATEs and calls itself "AMERICA" is a LYING VERSION (UScentric version) OF REALITY. United States implies that it is a FEDERATION, "OF" implies that it belongs to a place, that place at the time was the CONTINENT that was always called AMERICA as it was shown on the Waldseemuller's map. That is, UNITED STATES OF THE CONTINENT AMERICA. I see all this as a RACIST and XENOPHOBIC view of a WHITE ANGLO-SAXON COUNTRY DESCENDING FROM THE BRITISH EMPIRE on a continent (America) predominantly colonized by eastern European countries (Spain and Portugal). "WE ARE THE ORIGINAL AMERICA and the rest is "xAmérica, yAmérica" since they are descendants of Spain and Portugal". Even the term "Latin America" is a term that is also racist and xenophobic since it homogenizes 20 different countries as "ONE THING" aka "a different America". This wrong homogeinization can be seen in 4:48 because they say that Latin America is a Spanish-speaking world but the reality is that we have countries that also speak Portuguese, French...

    • América definitely is NOT a country and furthermore "American" is NOT a nationality or citizenship. I was born in the United States of América and anyone born or becomes a "natural" resident here, OFFICIALLY, are U.S. CITIZENS. North América & South América are collectively known as AMÉRICA, the American Continent(s). Anyone born on AMÉRICA is an American, even Canadians, jajaja. América means America & America means América in ANY language especially English here in AMÉRICA. Nothing gets lost in translation. Very simple

    • Latin America is called this because "all countries speak languages derived from Latin" hmmm but the official language of Suriname is German and Jamaica, Barbados speak English, where is the coherence?? If we divide the AMERICAN CONTINENT BY INFLUENCE OF THE COUNTRIES THAT COLONIZED THEM why is ANGLO-SAXONIC AMERICA not a thing like LATIN AMERICA? The term ANGLO AMERICAN is not even used because you guys think you are the real America!!!! Another problematic concept is the "West" which is also racist and xenophobic.. . You always try to GET AWAY from the other poor and predominantly NON-WHITE countries of THE CONTINENT AMERICA bc you don't want to be in the same boat as us, but guess what? THERE IS NO OCEAN BETWEEN US!!

  • Nah, slavs got no problems with Ptuj. But we have some traps on our own but mainly connected with different cases and flexible sufixes eg. town Małogoszcz and Bydgoszcz sounds the same but in genitive case first one will be Małogoszcza and latter one will be Bydgoszczy.

  • Captioind Hone church

  • 1:19. That one didn't age quite so well.

  • I voted for sweat potato

  • BLITZ

  • Australia has not gained it's independence.... yet.

  • How have I not seen this before

  • Did this recently get un unlisted?

  • I love the fade out that didn't go anywhere. Comic genius.

  • The speaker is always the most likeable person in Parliament 😃

  • The ads are the ez bit at end

  • 5:27 Christopher Columbus' face lol

  • if wyoming is a contry then it will be the squares contry

  • I had a conversation with a Canadian who was denying they were from America even after I said I was talking about the continent, they then said they weren't from South America. To this day, I am very confused.

    • América definitely is NOT a country and furthermore "American" is NOT a nationality or citizenship. Very simple Anyone who uses these 2 terms is due to ignorance, conceitedness, or/and arrogance. Very simple. I was born in the United States of América and anyone born or becomes a "natural" resident here, OFFICIALLY, are U.S. CITIZENS. Very simple. North América & South América are collectively known as AMÉRICA, the American Continent(s). Very simple. Anyone born on AMÉRICA is an American, even Canadians, jajaja. Very simple. América means America & America means América in ANY language especially English here in AMÉRICA. Nothing gets lost in translation. Very simple

  • ok now i wanna build a country with 1km x 1km 2

    • You can but nobody will recognise it probably

  • This has been an excellent excuse to stay in bed a bit longer on a dismally wet and dreart Saturday morning. Thank you!

  • when airplanes are demoted as the historical marvel in favor of space fairing crafts or at worst the importance of the next war, do you think they will still shove Kittyhawk down children's throats after the fact along with mitochondria and 1692?

  • I guess Kosovo could have been at least named. :)

    • @Jay Foreman oh right, my bad. Harsh decision then, but fair enough ^^

    • It was. 2:41.

  • "a flying prince philip" lmao rip in piss phil

  • Thank you.

  • Columbus seems like a dumb person who just got lucky.

  • yeah no. Hard disagree on this one

  • That outro though.

  • OKAAAAYYYY! THIS IS PROOF! England (at least) perhaps all of the UK, has the greatest insane suppressed libido! WHO IN HIS RIGHT MIND CALLS A TRAIN STATION BUSHY HEAT? Yeah yeah, the final "H". But you're kidding no one. But there you have it. While in the process of designing and preparing someone of the secret royal cabinet for garding moral and good manners saw the vital error just in time. Secret machinations and covert actions took place, pfff, just in time. The unleashing of the libido monster was just in the nick of time prevented! It took a war and a total restruction of the economy and feminism, but there you have it: prevented! No bushy... youknowwhatitscalled. Up till this moment. You dastardly Map Idiots! Now I shall have to warn the proper secret moral autorities. Sigh... no, our noble work never ends. 😄

  • I like the vid ismem.info/for/v-deo/k4bJpJqOm6OtnbA.html

  • JAY: British names are tricky to pronounce... ME: **laughs in Welsh**

  • It's so cool you can literally walk up to the PM's doorstep in UK. Here the president lives in a massive isolated presidential estate no one can get near plus it lies in an isolated city in the middle of nowhere populated only by scumbag politicians. Probably that's why most of them are such scumbags

    • @Jay Foreman oh that's a bummer, but seeing you replied to me twice makes up for it :) thanks and cheers

    • Actually, in real life, you can’t walk up to the prime minister’s door. We used a different door.

  • Just vote ekre

  • American is a CONTINENT.

  • 5:02 the funniest, most common generic crash sound of them all. And also underused since it's so goddamn amusing and pleasant to hear. I still get flashbacks of getting hit by cars on Dave Mirra 2

    • @Jay Foreman I definetely must catch up on that show then

    • Since making this video, I’ve spotted that crash sound everywhere! Futurama seems to use it every five seconds.

  • CARACA, não sei se tem algum brasileiro aqui, mas é o Guga Mafra rindo na plateia? Muito parecido!

  • I never knew Queen Elizabeth was Canadian

  • learning this song is probably my biggest achievment in life my small mexican brain has a mild seizure hearing very english words like what even is a ickenhem

  • It’s Cape Verde, not Cap Verdi.

  • American here. The part of me that cares a lot about accuracy is annoyed that we, in the US, are the Americans and that "America" usually = USA. The rest of me says, "Welp, that's the way of words and language. This is the norm, has been for centuries now, so there's no use being too annoyed about it."

  • Definately most of it is for the philippines, part of it is for the vietnamese, some is for malasya, a tiny bit is for brunei and NONE is for china.

  • The name of our country is The United States of America. America being part of the Americas. We don’t call our country America because that’s not the name of our country, we say The United States, the U.S. or simply The States. The only ones I’ve ever heard call us America are Europeans. In fact, that’s one way I can tell right away that someone isn’t from here, by calling us America.

  • my second fav contri is egypt

  • Who's watching in 2021??

  • My favourite part of the whole video was the advert!

  • Chad 2 all the way

  • ONE YEAR GIVE IT UP FOR ONE YEAR

  • This is what everyone deserves to hear

  • Egypt: Bir Tawil? Sudan: Bir I Won’t.
