In a simple question-and-answer format with a word count of 17 (“Grandpa, do rabbits live in the bush? Yes, rabbits live in the bush.”), seven-year-old Jared Martell finds out from his grandpa, Pat, who lives in the bush. While grandpa and grandson appear in the background, seamlessly (almost) photo-shopped animals are placed in the foreground. The result—including a bear in the deep snow and a buffalo all by herself—is visually hilarious. In answer to the grandson’s last question, “Who lives in the bush?”, Grandpa answers, “I live in the bush!” Text also appears in Slavey, Chipewyan and Cree.
