VIDEO OF THE DAY: Death to Pennies (In Canada!)
April 2, 2012

C.G.P. Grey is not a big fan of pennies. A while back, Grey created a vid called 'Death To Pennies', which offers an argument as to why the U.S. should remove pennies from circulation. And now the filmmaker and speaker - who creates videos which feature, in his words, "complex things explained" - is applauding Canada's decision to phase out pennies.

In this new vid that was released today, Grey says Canada made his "reason-to-like her list one item longer by deciding to abolish the penny". The video is titled 'Canada Gets Rid of the Penny (Huzzah!)'. Check it out below:
