The only thing viral about this video is the way it makes you feel after you watch it

It’s a good probability most of you have seen the video produced by some city workers.
It’s a video set to Adele’s hit song, Hello.
If you are one of the few Lloydminsterites who has not seen Trudeau, It’s Me, I advise you to keep it that way.
It is, in a word, terrible.
It’s in the basement of the bush leagues.
From the dreadful singing to the stilted performances, to the begging message, it stinks.
It’s an embarrassment.
People in the vid are asking Prime Minister Trudeau for infrastructure money.
I’m telling you this because you, like many others, may not have been able to make it past the first 30 seconds of that vile video.
(I’d love to know why this wasn’t made earlier, you know in 2014 when oil tanked and the fiend Harper was still in office.)
Oh sure, there will be people who say the video was just in fun and, hey, if young Justin does take notice, then maybe, just maybe ....
No.
  Not gonna happen.
I’m sure some folks will take me to task for this and say it’s not all that bad and at least they tried.
Seriously though, those same people must be the ones who sit through their nephew’s part in the Christmas play with fixed smiles on their faces and one eye on the clock.
Look, I have no doubt the city’s deputy CAO, Kirk Morrison — the rumoured producer behind this horrible, vile production — is very good at his job.
I actually applaud the attempt, but once he saw the finished product, Mr. Morrison would not have been faulted for finding a shovel and taking it to the back yard where he could dig a very deep hole and stuff the production deep into it before putting the dirt back where it belonged.
The we would never, ever have to talk about it again.
