Re Ukraine: Many people wondering if Map Men are legitimising the Russian annexation of Crimea at 2:39. We are not. We had intended to make Crimea a different colour, as a way of saying ‘look, sticky outy bit that’s also currently disputed’, but we just forgot to do it. We are sorry. This YouTube account is not, actually, a Kremlin propaganda bot.
@Kato0909 This is correct map. Deal with it. It’s funny how past 30 years of treating Crimeans like subhumans bite you in the behind yet you still blame others, not themselves. Go ahead, ban all languages except ukrainian and turn rabid nationalism up to eleven and Crimea will be only the first region to vote with their legs…
@Вікторія Гончар well it’s wrong then because it has a Moscow timezone
@Valentine Taylor кошмар!
I like the cameo from Willo the Wisp.
That was absolutely delightful.
It was nice
Yakko Warner has been really quiet ever since this dropped.
“Can you translate this piece?”
“Thanks very much!”

Come on, you can’t just group them all as “blobby countries.” Clearly:
Andorra is a lion’s head
Antigua and Barbuda is a colon
Austria is a chicken leg
Barbados is is a reclining chair from the side
Belgium is a fedora with a small brim
Belarus is a T-bone steak
Bhutan is an RV
Bosnia and Herzegovina is just a triangle
Cambodia is a guy carrying a backpack bending down to pick up a penny
Czechia is the head of a hippo
Djibouti is the head of a beluga
Dominica is a turtle shell
Estonia is an aardvark looking up
Grenada is a meteor leaving debris behind
Hungary is a bowl
Iceland is… just Iceland
Latvia is Patrick Star’s face, lying down and snoring
Lithuania is an anvil
Romania is a frilly fish
Serbia is a doorknob
Saint Lucia is Sri Lanka in disguise
Tanzania is a Talosian
Uruguay is a dull arrowhead
and Zimbabwe is one of the Whos from the Grinch
In the ‘Stereo’ ad section, who here thinks Mark sounds like the original Arthur Dent (Simon Jones) from the radio and TV series? 🙂
Okay, now sing it a beat too late.
