I this video, people from different countries were asked whether or not they can distinguish Americans. After confirming that Americans are indeed easy to decipher from other nationalities, people went on to explain just how distinguishable Americans are. If we weren't so busy laughing at ourselves, we might even be offended by some of the comments!

One girl deemed all Americans "white and fat." Another corrected her friend by keeping it PC. She said:

"Well, let's say they usually have a bit more weight on their hips."


Others claimed that Americans are "large," "macho," "bigger," and "plump." Essentially, Americans are known in other countries for being overweight. We also apparently go to McDonalds on the daily.

Here's a rather strange one...one boy pointed out that Americans never carry umbrellas when its raining. Pretty sure that's just in the movies. How else would the unrealistically attractive protagonists get caught in the rain and share a super passionate and romantic kiss?

One person commented on the binge-drinking habits of Americans. He said:

"I think they always want to play drinking games. They really want to make sure everybody gets really wasted and make sure everybody takes a lot of shots."


While not totally inaccurate, that stereotype generally only applies to Americans in their young twenties ... #College.

Americans also apparently wear big, loose clothes. Some Americans do go the "baggy," comfy route when it comes to fashion. However, let's not forget about the "bandage dress" taking over the city scene on Saturday nights.

Finally, Americans are deemed "loud" by many participants in the video. Can't argue with that one.



Apparently this restaurant in Ireland takes one American stereotype a bit too seriously:
