MOCKED AND INSULTED: IFHT shames Vancouver's funnest spots in song

IFHT perform 'No Fun City'.

Much-loved comedy duo I F*cking Hate That (IFHT) lampooned their hometown's reputation as 'No Fun City' in a hysterical rap video released earlier today.

"No Fun City. No Fun City. Everything is s***ty in no fun city," raps IFHT. "Running, supping, hiking, sucks. Shopping, skiing, biking sucks. This place, this place, this place sucks. That thing, that thing, that thing sucks. There's too much sushi, it's all undercooked. There's not enough culture, to even read books. Your roads are bland and there's nothing to see and not to mention your parks are too clean." 

Keeping the vocals as boring and monotonous as possible without sending listeners into a coma, IFHT keeps up their rap attack against a backdrop of famous Vancouver sights, from the stunning coastal rainforests complete with a huge grizzly bear to the city's venerable Gastown Steamclock and Science World sphere.

However, Vancouver's world-famous attractions prove no match for IFHT, who yawns and moans his way across No Fun City, even taking a swipe at his hometown's "lame" nightclubs and a ridiculously huge selection of beers on tap at a pub.

No Fun City comes two years after IFHT unleashed their satirical video 'How To Be A Vancouverite', mocking house prices, weather, their city's seeming obsession with yoga and bike lanes, and much more.
