Retired astronaut records In Canada with his brother Dave

Canadian astronaut Chris Hadfield, who was appointed an officer of the Order of Canada Monday, is marking Canada Day with "the most Canadian music video ever."

His new song, In Canada, was composed by his brother Dave Hadfield and features both siblings on guitar.

Hadfield, who won the adulation of Canadian kids by singing from space, described the new work on his Facebook page as "a polite song from two brothers who are just hoping your day is going OK."

The video features campfires, jumping in the lake and lots of barbecue while the lyrics hit on the highlights of Canadian life — from doughnuts to canoes.

Is it the most Canadian music video ever? You decide.
