  • I made some new merch designs.

  • Do you like em?

  • I don't know, I think they're pretty cool.

  • Link in bio.

  • Hey, friends who live in Canada!

  • What do you think of...

  • Canada?

  • - What do I think of Canada hmm...

  • Let's see...

  • uhh...

  • Well,

  • when the snow melts,

  • you get to witness

  • the minefield of dog poop that people didn't pick up.

  • It's cold,

  • but I like the cold

  • because you can keep layering until you're warm,

  • but in the heat you can only get so naked.

  • And then-

  • and then you just have a sunburn

  • on your butt.

  • Every summer I leave Arizona

  • to visit my family in Canada

  • because we like seeing them

  • and they're really great and

  • yeah, we also don't like to live in a volcano.

  • We normally have a non-stop flight,

  • but this one particular trip

  • we decided to do a layover to save some money.

  • I think it was July, 2012

  • so I was like,

  • fourteen.

  • A couple days before our flight,

  • my mom realized

  • that my brother Jax and my passports were EXPIRED.

  • Well,

  • this is either gonna go over well,

  • or it isn't.

  • Haha...

  • ah it was so much worse.

  • We got to the flight check-in

  • and they said,

  • "Hey...

  • these passports are expired."

  • Obviously.

  • But it was only by a little bit

  • so the guy was nice and said,

  • "Mkay,

  • I'm gonna let you all through and inform your layover about what's happening, but get those renewed soon."

  • So we were like yay crisis averted! But wait, there's still 95% of the video left!

  • That's because we were WRONG. We landed in Minneapolis, and the people said "Hey, these passports are expired."

  • Obviously. "Oh yeah, we're sorry about that, the man at the Phoenix Airport

  • let us off with a warning and said he contacted you about everything and-"

  • *BOOSH*

  • "Well, crap, I think we're actually stuck in Minneapolis."

  • "I guess this is our new home now, get used to it kids."

  • So it was my scared mom and her two

  • "expired" children stranded in this obscure city. We went to a pharmacy which for some reason also takes passport photos

  • But we had to wait until the passport place opened the next morning. Mom was having an aneurysm panic attack

  • But didn't want us to worry so she was like "Hey kiddos time for an adventure!"

  • Addddventure Ti..

  • [COPYRIGHT]

  • She took us to the Mall of America which is the biggest, craziest mall in America with 4 floors of shops,

  • entertainment, a mirror maze, bowling, roller coasters, aquarium

  • I've never seen anything like it. There were so many things to do; how could we choose what to do first?

  • Roller coasters in a mall, four floors, a kid's paradise? People get married in that mall! (✿◠‿◠)

  • We ate at the food court for 20 minutes and left because it was closing for the night.

  • We found a hotel and slept in our clothes even though we had our luggage. I remember on the light rail

  • I said to mom "You know.. I really like it here!" like the oblivious child I was not knowing the weight of the actual circumstances

  • Having a grand old time listening to [my] High School Musical playlist on an iPod and playing with my stuffed animals (ノ◕ヮ◕)ノ*:・゚✧

  • I frickin' *loved* stuffed animals. As a kid I couldn't sleep without them

  • My favorites were Raoole the Mouse and Ringo the Raccoon.

  • I've had him for years.

  • Anyway,

  • luckily, Minneapolis is one of the few places that has one day turnaround for

  • passports. For the cost of an arm, a leg and your entire savings. ( > Д < )

  • So in the morning we had to check out of the hotel, run to the passport place, and make it to the airport in time

  • for our new flight. It's gonna be a tight schedule...

  • but it was doable.

  • We were on our way to get the passports when in the middle of transit I realized...

  • "Mom... ?"

  • "Uh..."

  • "I forgot my stuffed animals in the hotel."

  • *aneurysm*

  • "But- but- no, it's alright, I don't- I don't need 'em; it's okay, really, it's not a big deal!"

  • I left Raoole and Ringo in the hotel and Mom was already having a mental stress breakdown and I was not at all wanting to

  • contribute to any more of that, but mom, being the kick-butt awesome parent she is, defeatedly pulled out her phone.

  • "Hello, yes, we just checked out this morning. Would you check Room 421 to see if there's two stuffed animals in there?"

  • "Um, ma'am, there's someone currently occupying that room... ?"

  • And that was super weird to hear because we literally just left the hotel; how did someone already fill up the room?

  • Turns out we just called the wrong hotel ¯\_(ヅ)_/¯ so we got transferred to the right one and they said they'd hold them for us to

  • quickly pick up. So now the schedule was:

  • Arrive at the passport place right as it opens at 8:00 a.m.,

  • Get passports, run back to the hotel to grab Raoole and Ringo, rush to the airport before our 1:00 p.m.

  • flight (and I'd also like to point out that the last shuttle to the airport leaves at 12 p.m.

  • so if we miss that shuttle we're screwed! Remember, things were different back in the days of 2012 B.U.

  • "Before Uber." Back then, the idea of paying to jump in a car with an

  • unlicensed stranger wasn't very popular.)

  • At the passport place, we walked up to the desk and the first thing they said was:

  • "So both parents are present, correct?"

  • "Uh, actually, he's 1,645 miles away... "

  • *aneurysm*

  • "Nononono-!"

  • There was a solution! We could get in contact with dad, send him a form to fill out, get it notarized,

  • which means to legalize by a notary, which means a person licensed by the government approves it, which-

  • Okay, we don't have time for this!!

  • We had to prove the paper is legal, but there's a problem to that solution.

  • It's 8 a.m. in Minneapolis but 6 a.m. in Arizona, which means notarizing places...

  • ...aren't open.

  • *aneurysm*

  • Now, my mom knows a lot of people and one of her best friends is actually an accountant,

  • which means she can get it notarized when she goes into work and get it sent back super quickly.

  • Which what are the odds of that?

  • "Mom, we should buy a lottery ticket if we actually get to Canada."

  • So, quick!! Woke dad, got the form filled, called the friend,

  • did the thing, got the thing back, and somehow, everything was accepted!

  • And we weren't expired children anymore! And off we were running down the city to get back to the hotel to grab Raoole and Ringo.

  • Okay, I'm gonna insert a tiny story detail; we left our luggage at the hotel

  • so we wouldn't have to be dragging it everywhere, which means we would have had to get back to the hotel anyway,

  • but it's much more intense to think that grabbing the stuffed animals was an extra step

  • we didn't have time for so, shhh we're gonna continue!

  • We were sprinting to catch the light rail,

  • Jax and I were running ahead, and for some reason, mom's knee started hurting and she started slowing down

  • "Are you okay?!" and she was just like "Go, go, i'll catch up, just get to the train! Go, go without me!!"

  • We made it. (´・ω・`)

  • We Sonic'd into the hotel, grabbed Raoole and Ringo (and the luggage we were already coming back for), reached the shuttle before it left,

  • and finally fell into the airport!

  • Yaayaaaay yay

  • Sitting at our gate, waiting for the plane to swoop us off to Canadaland with their moose and their poutine and Niagara Falls

  • Canada Nerd: Well technically, Niagara Falls is made up of three different waterfalls and the U.S.

  • actually owns two of them.

  • But I guess Horseshoe Falls is the biggest and most popular so-

  • Mom suddenly realized that she forgot my dad's letter at the passport

  • showing that both parents consent to us (the innocent helpless pathetic children) crossing the border.

  • In the past, security always asks as to show that consent paper,

  • so mom couldn't even have a relaxing plane ride,

  • being stressed out of her mind that we would land and still couldn't pass the border. After all that!!

  • She didn't tell us she was worried because she was already doing a frickin' dang

  • good job of hiding the weight of what was going on, so she held it in the entire flight.

  • But she told us afterwards and we gave her a slow clap.

  • She deserved more, but we were kids.

  • (That's all we had.)

  • We approached the security, booth gave him our shiny new passports;

  • they looked at my mom, my brother, and me...

  • "Have a fun time in Canada!"

  • They didn't ask that time!!!!

  • My mom, every time she tells this story always, says "They always ask, they always ask; they didn't ask this time!"

  • "How the frick even-"

  • "They always ask!!!!!!!"

  • And that was that; we got to Canada. That's it.

  • Ginger Pale: Wow that was a lot of effort to come here.

  • Dom: Yeah, I mean Canada is all right, but you guys have that Mall of America.

  • Ginger Pale: Okay, yeah, sure, cool, but I mean we have West Edmonton Mall, which has an indoor waterpark and a theme park!!

  • Dom: Wait, really, tha- that exists?

  • *Lip Smack*

  • Dom: Well, I guess that automatically puts us on top then.

  • Ginger Pale: We were always on top, Dom. We are America's hat. (・`ω´・)

  • Woo, yeah! Canada!

  • I had to ask my mom the timeline of events

  • during the whole thing because I was young and don't remember anything but eating in Mall of America and forgetting my stuffed animals.

  • Big thanks to Domics and Ginger Pale for being Canadian and also helping with lines. They're great buds!

  • This is hopefully the last time I mention this in an end card, but I'm still interested in finding other animators.

  • I talked about it in the apples video, but this is the last time I'm bringing it up, I promise (I think).

  • I'm still looking for animators to help me with scenes because I want the videos to be more animated.

  • The videos I did in the past on my own are pretty bland looking...

  • And I want to be able to have more quality animation in videos without taking six months to finish something.

  • I know people are against me...

  • asking for help on videos because my channel has that homemade

  • "It's just a normal person doing YouTube for fun" feeling. I'm not professional at anything

  • But a normal person can't make

  • seven-minute fully animated videos every couple of weeks on their own. Some people might prefer one or two videos a year that are done only by me

  • and I get that, but I like posting videos more frequently not only because it helps the channel and me stay alive,

  • but a lot of people enjoy more videos, and I'm able to support really talented animators

  • I'm working with. That's my take on this situation, and you don't have to agree with me at all.

  • But I'm really trying my best to think of you and me and everyone. Kthnx,

  • send a portfolio to JaidenAnimationsAnimator@gmail.com if you're interested, info in the description,

  • Have a good rest of your week, and here's Ginger Pale being Canadian.

  • Ginger Pale: Moose, maple syrup, a health care...

  • poutine...

  • Go subcribe to JaidenAnimations and Ginger Pale and TheOdd1sOut and Domics

I made some new merch designs.
