      I would just like to add that the comparison is unfair. Europe is a continent and not a country. I would say that most of the rest of the Americas also think US Americans are weird

      Not only Europeans, but on the other side of the Americas as well. I'm from Brazil, and these are my reactions to this video, relating to the region of Brazil where I live:
      - Tipping: it is theoretically optional, but in some places it is already calculated in your bill. You should ask for removing it from there if you notice it, or in case you are taking it away, it won't be added by default. Here we call it a "service fee" and it is kinda official. Usually it doesn't go directly to the person, but it is then divided between all employees.
      - A guy serving you your drink all the time: that is really annoying. Just give me the bottle and let me serve myself. I do have both hands functioning.
      - Food portion sizes: in Brazil we have a different method of serving food, being in my region even more special. Most restaurants adopt the "all you can eat buffet", in which you take a plate, fit everything you can on the top of it and weigh it to know how much you will pay for it. 500g of shrimps would cost the same as 500g of lettuce in a buffet like this, but don't worry, the price already balances this in the long run. In my region of Brazil, though, we have a limit to the price, in which if you reach the limit price, you can serve yourself as much as you want later on and the price won't get higher.
      - Breakfast: in Brazil we usually just have a cup of coffee with milk with a ham and cheese sandwich or something somewhat lighter like that. Maybe marmalade. Honey sounds too fancy and bacon with eggs sounds like you will arrive late at work.
      - Friendly staff: selling point. But it gets annoying sometimes when the shopkeeper keeps stalking you asking if you need something. We have both sides of this coin here.
      - Buying alcohol/cigarettes: back in the time when I was 15 (15 years ago), people would only care about the profit, so no worries buying it. Now it is much different, but still, they would only ask for an ID if you don't have a beard (yes, that is more of a problem for women)
      - Credit/Debit Card for everything: welcome to Brazil. Also, we have the all mighty boleto (Google/Wikipedia it) and dividing the price in fractions to be paid during the course of several months for anything, really. You can buy a £50 item and pay £10 through the course of 5 months if you wish so.
      - TV is _sheet_ everywhere, but TV in the USA is really weird. The weirdest thing in Brazil is the amount of "Christian" TVs. I really can't understand how are they still being aired even after broadcasting all their lies on TV. Remember that story about false prophets? It's started, man! And started in Brazil!
      - 24/7 venues: in Brazil, that is more or less restricted to pharmacies, McDonald's and prostitutes with some exceptions
      - Patriotism: I've got the impression Brazilians are way too self-aware to be patriotic 'Murika level. In Brazil, for instance, it is prohibited to use the national flag as a piece of clothing. In the USA, you could buy star spangled pants, which in my opinion is a huge disrespect.
      - Guns: believe-me, half of Brazil would love to have the right to own firearms and have the right to wear them on the go, but here, it is almost impossible, unless you are a police officer or a gangster. BTW, gangsters have better guns than the police. Rio saw kind of a treaty with gangs for making the games possible.
      - Roads: Brazil is also huge, so we relate

      Okay. It depends what region of The United States that you are located at. That whole heavy christian and loud patriotic/nationalistic image that get's stereotyped so much is usually found within the south east or the bible belt part of the country. It is kind of different in most of the northwest and the south west states. although, it is true about the guns, you did nail that one right. Oh, and one thing you don't want do in the united states is bring up controversial political issues that are "hot button issues" such as "The Second Amendment" and "Abortion" because it just starts a little civil conflict among friends, family, and co-workers. You know? I'm pretty sure it is the same with Europe a little.

    "In the US you can buy nearly everything with plastic, what Europeans are not used to"
    Well, I can't speak for all Europeans but I can confirm that you're absolutely right in that matter for Germany. We Germans LOVE our cash - it provides some amount of data security plus security all in all. After all, the number on your credit card is just an imaginary number somewhere in your account. ANd if it should crash or by accident sth happens, you still have cash :)

    One of the things I as a European have noticed is that there don't seem to be any children or youths anywhere. I've been to America 3 times, each time for 2 weeks, and I've only ever seen 2 or 3 people under the age of 18. It felt like being in some bizaaro world where somebody killed all the children. Do American parents force their children to spend all their time at home or something?

    The biggest culture shock for me, an eastern European, was how americans treat race and politics. So upfront about it and embracing extremes.
    I remember being surprised when people referred to me as a "person of color" when I am 90% white with the slightest tinge of middle-eastern. Every other conversation I was in mentioned my race. I was also surprised to hear how many young americans think a better political system would be far left or far right. Makes no sense to me, my country spent the last 100 years all over the political spectrum and none of it worked.

    I find a lot of shocking things in the US. You don't have free healthcare at all, in fact it's horrendously expensive. Your education system sucks. Your prison system is inhuman torture and slavery, like private prisons, this solitary thing, it's not middle ages anymore. Basicaly everything is corrupted by rich people, and if you've been born poor your a lazy communist asshole. I'm not even starting on Trump. America could be great, but right now it's so fucked up.
    And for the record, my country's not perfect (just in case, sorry for my english), it sucks rigt now. We don't have marriage equality, people in charge are basicaly white, straight men in their 50s, and it's been extremely catholic recently. But, fucking hell, i don't have to worry about my neighbour shooting me with completely legal gun and that i'm gonna have to sell everything i own to pay my hospital bill, and if i get pregnant i'm gonna have paid maternity leave. America, get your fucking shit together.

    Uhm... I'm from Europe and no one asks you for an ID if you're obviously an adult. And no, that doesn't mean we sell cigarettes or booze to kids.
    And european cities aren't messy, we just know how to point directions using distances like "go this way 500meters then turn right" or "...until you reach KFC and turn right"
    Thing about Serbians is plain inaccurate, as I come from Serbia. Owning a gun is practically impossible here, as authorities grant fairly few permits for firearm possession and for that you must be completely mentally sane, have never been arrested or had troubles with a law and even then they will grant like 3-4 permits per county. You also need to have viable reason for wanting to have a gun, and you can only carry hand guns, not rifles, shotguns or anything bigger. So that "fact" you pretty much pulled out of your ass. The thing is, Serbs don't find owning firearms weird, cause they are pretty conservative and like guns for some reason.
