Happy Canada Day from Tess Paras

Music video parody mocks Avril Lavigne's "Hello Kitty"

The music video for "Hello Kitty" was allegedly pop star Avril Lavigne's homage to Japanese pop culture. It was a special kind of awful. As I noted, Gwen Stefani was doing this shit like ten years ago.

Many agreed. Actress Tess Paras, the mastermind behind that brilliant Hollywood-skewering "Royals" parody "Typecast," was inspired to write her own musical homage to Avril Lavigne's home country of Canada -- its celebrities, hobbies, foods, and of course, the national animal, The Beaver.

What better way for us Americans to celebrate July 1 -- Canada Day? Take a look:

Hands down, the best thing to come out of Avril Lavigne's craptastic song. Now I feel like chowing down on some poutine. For more info on Tess Paras, you can check out her website and follow her on Twitter.
