    I was impressed with the fact that the reporter was able to keep a straight face throughout the story.

    1. It’s so funny. Perhaps I will make such funny videos too. Always think about it’s viral power.
      I’m well on my way.

    Expensive shipping and handling! (Insurance too!)

    1. Michael Kwan says:

      Bah, who needs insurance? I’d take that gamble on my first-born, wouldn’t you? After all, you can always make another. 😆

  8. Angel says:

    I don’t think you need to have been around children to get the point.

    Brought to you by the same ppl who said that the internet crashed the other day.


    Will people really believe this? Some of the comments here make me wonder…

    p.s. i suppose it ISs a brilliant marketing move – the more outrageous, the more it will get passed around and make a ‘buzz’ in the w3 world.

  10. blogcrowds says:

    John Chow created this service! 😈 😈 😈

  11. cool tidbits says:

  12. James Wilcox says:

  13. I sent this vid to a few people; they all loved it! We need more of this stuff at John Chow…

  14. This is why wimminz need to stay at home. That and so they can GET BACK IN THE KITCHEN AND BAKE ME A PIE.

  15. mason says:

    LOL wow wtf. good thing this isn’t real. 😛

  16. Teh wimminz need to get back in teh house. So they can take care of the kids. AND GO IN THE KICTHEN AND BAKE ME A PIE!

  17. Dan says:

    You know, right now there are probably at least a dozen people searching Google in hopes of finding out how to get in contact with this nanny service…

  18. Simon says:

    I use this service quite a lot, it’s good value.

  19. I can not see the movie. Something is wrong?

  20. Lol that’s funny.. In the UK some people are actually paying more now to send their children to nannys who can speak Mandarin and therefore teach the kids Mandarin and give them a headstart since Mandarin is becoming more widely used around the globe.

    1. mason says:

      heh I always wondered about that. Since there are about a billion people who speak mandarin in the world, why don’t they teach it in school? Then again I can’t see people speaking mandarin a lot here in texas lol.

      1. I heard Mandarin is an extremely hard language to learn and that it takes quite a few years if you really want to learn it well. Giving kids a couple of hours of Mandarin a week won’t learn them a lot.

        Also, I don’t really see the need to learn children to speak Mandarin. Most Europeans or Americans will never come in contact with a person that only speaks Mandarin, except if they travel to China. And even in China it may not be necessary to know Mandarin as lots of Chinese people are learning English.

        According to Wikipedia 200-300 million Chinese people already speak English and it’s been estimated that within 20 years there will be more English-speaking Chinese than native English speakers in the rest of the world.

        Additionally, there are very very few jobs that require you to speak Mandarin. In fact, most of the people in my country who studied sinology at university complain that they can barely find a job.

    Yeah, more blogger light relief please.

    WHY the hell do these parents have BABIES in first place when they can’t take care of them ?

    It’s really insane ….

    They are treating their own child as some kind of PACKAGE MATERIAL …. OMG 👿

    These parents should be punished for such INHUMAN act. Western world have GONE COMPLETELY WRONG bit of humanity, love and family values are left only in our EASTERN WORLD (Sp. South Aisia). Though the countries are not as rich as western counter parts, though we might not have as good daily facilities & infrastructure as western world, but we have LOVE & HUMANITY still alive in our hearts !

    1. cool tidbits says:

      Uh, you do know this was fake, right?

    2. Jay Tillery says:

      Calm down Tigress. Do you really believe someone will ship their kid off to India?

  23. Nathan Roe says:

    Not really sure how I feel about this, mostly since i am a kid!

  24. Over The Web says:

    If it’s just for joke it’s funny..
    If not then WTF is going on?! omg..
    who the hell will put a kid in a box?
    holy mother 🙁

    Over The Web

    1. Of course it’s just a joke 😛

  25. That is some good camera editing! And the reporter kept it together the whole time!


  26. Like they say, don’t knock it until you try it! It was funny!

  27. Ankit says:

    Places like India ? , buddy India has 4 times the GDP of Canada and you say places like India ! India is much more technologically advanced than Canada and there are uncountable things i can put here.

    live in your first(supposed) world arrogance !

    1. India’s GDP is indeed higher than Canada’s but India has more than 30x as many citizens 😉

      India’s GDP per capita: $3,800
      Canada’s GDP per capita: $35,600

      1. Ankit says:

        Are you aware of a thing called the price Index ?

        Nowhere in economics do we use per capita GDP LOL

  28. Ankit says:

    What costs $10 in Canada may cost just $.5 in India, hence there is no need for more pay. 😉

  29. Asela says:

    Wow they send kids to my Country “Sri Lanka” 😆 😆

  30. tim says:

    I don’t understand why these parents want to have baby and don’t want to take care baby themselves? What a bad idea to send out their kids to some other country !

    Luckily Mr John work as blogger ,and able take care your own baby (saw your baby video in last post). 🙂
