Watching these clips from a Toronto car fire I get the impression this is an audition video and this duo is trying out to be the 2013 version of Bob and Doug McKenzie, originally played by Dave Thomas and Rick Moranis in SCTV’s “Great White North” from the 1980s. These guys are quite critical of everyone and everything, from response time to people who dare pull between to their camera and the fire. But their language goes a little beyond calling everyone “hosers”.
The title of the video is “Toronto fire fail!” with the description, “Waste of tax dollars! Cant even put out a little car fire”. They get particularly nasty in Part Two (below) as firefighters struggle with gasoline leaking and reigniting under the car. Another great moment in citizen commentary from the digital age.
