A new video from a Korean student who goes by Sw Yoon will make you feel a mixture of pride, humiliation and shame because of your American heritage. In the short piece, entitled "How do you distinguish Americans?" Yoon interviews a number of international students about stereotypes they associate with Americans and American culture.

Basically, we're fat, we're loud, we're stingy, we eat at McDonald's and we don't carry umbrellas when it's raining. Seems right to me.

If you want to feel worse, re-watch this classic video of Irish people eating American junk food and have yourself a good cry.
