U.S. Infiltration is everywhere

It’s interesting how we, as Canadians have lost the ability to differentiate between Canada and the US. We’re so used to seeing American landmarks in television shows and movies that when we run across them in real life, we don’t realize how absolutely out of place they are.

Case in point. I work for a company that has a very unique building. It has been used in several films and television shows. For a few of them we’ve had to change our facade to look like a government facility in the United States. A few months ago, our doors had huge FBI decals on them and then today we masqueraded as the U.S. Dept. of Parks and Wildlife.

I’ll repeat, we’re in Canada. It’s highly doubtful that in real life, the FBI would have a facility in the middle of a Canadian industrial park with our several of our marked trucks in the parking lot. Neither would the US Park & Wildlife Department.

I’m completely amazed at the number of people who come to our company and look at the ‘fake’ signs on the door and don’t even question the validity of the ‘fake’ government office.

Okay, so it worked to my advantage when I recognized a salesman that I really didn’t want to talk to  – but sheesh people…we’re in CANADA.
