WATCH: Justin Trudeau Playfully Taunts the Obamas and Prince Harry with a Pushup and Mic Drop Before the Invictus Games
The Canadian prime minster proved his country is ready for the upcoming Invictus Games
Canadians might be notably nice, but that doesn’t mean they don’t like to engage in a little trash-talking now and again – especially when pushups are involved.
“Oh hey, I just thought I’d show our friends in the U.S. and the U.K. how Canada brings it. Your majesty, Prince Harry, President and Mrs. Obama,” Trudeau says before dropping to the floor for a pushup and imaginary mic drop while surrounded by Invictus Games competitors.
“Boom! Orlando. Invictus Games. Canada’s ready,” he says while masterfully holding a one-armed pushup.
The upcoming competition has inspired a healthy dose of trash talk between the three nations. Last week, the Obamas taunted Prince Harry with a mic drop and a promise that America would “bring it at the Invictus Games.” In return, Prince Harry and Queen Elizabeth responded with their own fun video – complete with a mic drop delivered by the prince.
