The Viral Video That Best Represents Each Of America’s 50 States, Part 3: The Northeast

Screen Shot 2013-12-20 at 2.30.01 PM

America. Home to a diverse set of cultures, traditions, histories, and local phenomena. This leads to regional stereotypes, many of which are easy to make fun of. So that’s exactly what we’re doing.

The UPROXX staff set out to find the popular Internet video that best represents each of our 50 states. We’ve already covered the 26 westernmost states (here and here). Today we work our way up into the northeast. In alphabetical order: Connecticut, Indiana, Maine, Massachusetts, Michigan, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, and Vermont.

Know of a video that works better for any of these states? Leave it in the comments.

Indiana: Lil Sebastian

Three-fourths of what we know about Indiana comes from Parks and Recreation, where we are given the impression that Indiana is very friendly and very fat (“Pawnee: First in Friendship, Fourth in Obesity!”) Indiana was also home to the best thing to possibly happen to anything in the entire universe: Lil Sebastian. — Dustin Rowles

Maine: Excited Driver Spots Big Maine Moose

This happens less often than you think in Maine. By which I mean, it only happens every few months that a moose decides to get on a major highway. – Dan Seitz

Massachusetts: The Real Housewives of South Boston

What, did you think we were going to talk about the Berkshires? This is one of the few parodies of Boston townies that’s actually funny, not least because it’s the little things it gets right. – Dan Seitz

Michigan: Pistons Dance Party

It’s not easy living in Michigan, especially in Detroit. Sometimes you want to yell, “I can’t get this f*cking there” on live TV, while other times, you have to dance away the pain, as one chubby ball of energy and an usher did during a Pistons game earlier this year. SIGN THAT KID TO MOTOWN (is Motown still around?). — Josh Kurp

New Hampshire: Granite State of Mind

Vermont is actually the whitest state of the Union in terms of demographics. But New Hampshire, as this proves, is whitebread to its soul. – Dan Seitz
