Nardwuar: Who are you?
How are you doing, Wesley?
Welcome to Canada! How's Canada treating you?
You know, I want to say, Wesley, there is a church dedicated to you in Canada. Have you seen this? The Wesley Willis Church? The Wesley Willis United Church in Clinton, Ontario. (Nardwuar hands Wesley a picture of the Church)
A whole church! The Wesley Willis Church. This is not a joke church. It's like the real deal. What do you think of that, Wesley Willis?
Now you've been kicked out of church, haven't you?
But this church, do you think they would kick you out of the Wesley Willis Church at all?
And that's in Canada!
Now, Wesley, do you remember a guy called Daniel from Montreal who did a movie called the "Daddy of Rock N Roll" about you?

How are you enjoying Canada so far, have you seen any caribou?
Have you been to any Taco Bells at all? You're going to have a hard time in Vancouver. There are no Taco Bells at all.
