What does it mean to be Minnesotan? Does it mean adding a few “ya knows” and “you betchas” into your daily vocabulary? Does it mean watching The Weather Channel at least six times a day? Does it mean being nice (read: passive aggressive) all the time?
The series brought together 10 different producers to create videos analyzing what it means to be a Minnesotan. The first video, written and directed by MPR’s Sam Osterhout from Electric Arc Radio, pits “Minnesota Nice” against “New York Nice” in a few situations. The first: the cheesy joke. A true Minnesotan gives a courtesy laugh no matter how bad the joke, while the New Yorker . . . well just watch the video below.
New videos are premiering every Wednesday, and you can keep up with the conversation on Twitter with #MNEnough.
