If America's First, Who's Second? Europe Trolls Trump in Hilarious Series of Videos

After Donald Trump's inauguration declaration that "from this day forward it's going to be only America first", many in Europe were left wondering if perhaps they were second. In an attempt to win favor with the new President, many European nations have been making videos to show Trump why they should qualify for silver in the best country Olympics. 


First up were The Netherlands, who hilariously parodied Trump, bragging that they built a wall which created a sea that can be seen from the moon. 


Next the Danish - the people not the pastry - proposed mating the two country's national birds, the Bald Eagle and Mute Swan, to create Sweagle babies.


Not to be outdone, Switzerland bragged about their sexy mountains and denying women the vote until 1971.


Germany highlighted their most well-known leader, famous for his great hair and promise to make Germany great again.

Despite their Tiny land mass, Belgium packs a huge punch with their most famous export Abba; which may or may not be an alternative fact.


New parody videos are being made every day and you can watch them all here.

Why join Films For Action?

Goal: To rapidly transition to a just, ecologically sustainable, holistic way of living as fast as possible.

We believe the first step to achieve this goal should be an information delivery network that can amplify the impacts of all our efforts 1000 fold. 

Although Films For Action is centered around film - its true objective is the transformation of the world. This means moving away from the unsustainable paradigm we have now to a regenerative paradigm, as fast as humanly possible.  

Film is the medium of delivery -- the catalyst, the metabolizing agent to speed up, amplify and multiply the effects of every transition movement on the planet. And of course, "transition" contains it all - social justice, ecological regeneration, true democracy, egalitarian economics, universal empathy, less cultural insanity and more happiness and well-being.

All of these movements need a media ecosystem that supports this transition, rather than the media we have today which marginalizes it, ignores it, sanitizes it, suppresses it, or actively fights it. There is certainly good coverage across many different news outlets, and the quality and depth varies, but in terms of volume, the good stuff is easily lost in the deluge of superficial concerns.

Watch any network TV channel for 24 hours or read the newspaper for a week, and you will see what we mean. The dominant narratives which drive the national debate and become "common knowledge" is more often superficial, focused on symptoms rather than root causes, and reinforces the conventional "two sides" within the status quo. The lies and spin promoted by figures in power become well known, while voices that challenge and expand the range of debate rarely get heard. But most importantly, the level of repetition and volume of coverage is what counts. What gets covered day after day, and what gets covered once and is forgotten, or not covered at all? That's why we need a media movement that's dedicated to elevating the voices that aren't getting heard. We need media alternatives that make social change its primary focus. That's why Films For Action exists.

Ultimately, we're just one star in this growing constellation of new media, but we aim to do our part by cultivating the best video library dedicated to transition online, and we hope you'll join us
