    I think this might be one of the best trolls from LWT certainly in a long time, if not ever.

    I don't suppose there's a mirror for non-US viewers?

      I went hunting for a Canadian one, but Crave (Bell Canada's subscription streaming service) appears to be the only official way to watch it here online... So I wound up just using my US VPN to view the submitted link.

      This is from Season 8, Episode 13 on May 23, so there arrr! other ways besides a VPN to watch it though.

        I am curious, would you be able to download it through youtube-dl without a VPN? Or try watching it through Invidio.us?

          No, YouTube won't serve the video to a non-US IP If the invidious instance is in proxy mode and is based in the US, yes. Otherwise no.

            You're right, I can't even see the video in my feed if I switch to Canada. But I can see it in Sweden. It also looks like the video is available on yewtube: https://yewtu.be/watch?v=sIi_QS1tdFM

          Most of them seem to be based on youtube-dl anyway but more often than not they're US-hosted so whatever tool they're using winds up grabbing the video fine before giving you a download link.

          Region locking sucks.
