  1. This is such a dumb segment why would you put a map projection upside down. Almost unanimously every map has the United States the first way up. Of course some recentre countrys and change the layout to make their country seem larger or more important but they almost never just flip it. Why would they?

  2. Hey this has been the only Jimmy Kimmel thing to make me laugh in many years. I wish we could bring back the Jimmy from the man show much funnier!

  3. This shows the worst in the US, but I'm prideful to say all Michigan resident would correctly answer this question because our states a mitten

  4. The name of the country is the United States of America, not "America". America is the name of the continent. It's as if the British referred to their country as Europe.

  5. Our leftist educators have done a spectacular job educating our youth. It was pretty smart of them to do this experiment in the heart of the most far left state in the USA. The location guaranteed them that they would be able to find and highlight stupidity all in the name of entertainment.

  6. America is a CONTINENT… from CANADA TO ARGENTINA!!!!!!!! US is part of NORTH AMERICA… GET A MAP!!!!!!!!!!

  7. Isn’t „America“ the name of the continent? Which includes Canada, Mexico, Cuba, and depending on definition the entirety of south-America as well?

  8. All these skits on Kimmel are fake, they got people all here once and asked them when their kids birthday was and the majority of them didn’t which is total BS, these people are actors

  9. Russian influence and a grazy person?! How do they get away with that never-ending childish propaganda? Are people really that dumb in America? Totally mind-controlled sheep?

  10. Is it sad that the previous episodes of this set the bar so low that when they correctly guessed it as America the first few times I was like, “Well maybe we’re so bad after all!”

  11. The upsidedown one though is less about knowing what America looks like and more about having a good spacial awareness, which some people are just naturally better at than others

  12. Technically it is United States of America so calling it America alone is technically incorrect. America is the entirity of 2 continents;

  13. America is a CONTINENT. Wy did you say to everyone that they where right on "America" its only the US of America. Being ignorant on showing other peoples ignorance 🙂

  14. This Show: Can You Name This Country? (showing America's shape)

    Americans: Can't answer after changing it's angle.

    Me: Well, its actually 2 continents, not a country. Oh, wait… the editors are also Americans, so…..

  15. It kinda looks like an mishapen warthog. A long ugly nose, weird smile, ears that are way too spread out and a tiny little tail

  16. It's actually really interesting how a 90 or 180 degree turn can completely screw up our ability to recognize familiar complex shapes.

  17. I recently Googled an image of the World upside down. I had never, ever in my life seen an upside down map of the World. Pretty mind blowing!

  18. It's sad and egocentric when they call it "America", America is also Canada and Mexico, then we have central and south America. Not gonna even talk about the ignorance of the other ones..

  19. 2 things:

    1) ppl saying europe is not a country. America is also NOT a country… ok?

    2) the map "upside down" is actually not wrong if you put the correct indication for north and south

  20. America is a double continent of the Earth that consists of North America and South America.

    Right answer is United States of America.

  21. American isn't even a country but a continent. How arrogant you may be to think you are a a whole continent
