Radio Shack - Phonelandia - (2009) :30 (USA)

Hey, listen up Shack. Just because you have a cool new nickname doesn't mean you'll get a pass for failing geography. You're talking about "the population of Scandinavia" while playing the Swedish bands Discocrew super annoying summer hit Husvagn, yet you show off alps and people (well, phones) in traditional alpine dress, playing alphorn. That's Switzerland, fool.

(The Swiss/Swedish confusion happens so often in the states, methinks they're doing it as a long standing joke.)
