The Harvard Crimson stumped some of America's best educated students with a simple question: "What is the capital of Canada?"

"I dunno. Probably Vancouver or something," replied one Harvard student in a video posted to YouTube by the campus newspaper.

"Alberta? That's not right. I have no idea," said one woman.

"Ontario?" guessed another. She was not the last person to give this not-entirely-incorrect answer.

To their credit, though, our neighbours' top students did, for the most part, seem quite embarrassed about this gap in their knowledge.

"Oh my God," said one young man, backing away from the camera, clasping his hand over his mouth. "That's really bad. That's really bad that I don't know."

"Umm, is it Quebec?" a young woman said between embarrassed laughs.

One woman did know the answer.

"Ottawa," she replied.

"Are you Canadian?" asked the interviewer.

"Yeah," she said.
