Can you name every municipality in British Columbia, from Abbotsford to Zebellos? And then can you sing them all in one song, just like that countries of the world song from TV’s Animaniacs?

CBC’s Justin McElroy–the reporter behind last year’s fun public voting quest to name Canada’s best ever TV show and the recent Vancouver ambassador brackets-style vote (congrats, Canuck the Crow!)–happens to be the guy who can.

In this new video, McElroy sings ’em all…162 B.C. municipalities (rocking a sweet CBC shirt, too). CBC explains that this song was McElroy and a videographer’s entry for a CBC employee talent contest, which, natch, they won. CBC decided to polish up the performance for a video, and here we are.
