This funny and informative video supposedly comes from a Columbia Business School Orientation in 2008. Topics covered: (1) How to recognize an American; (2) how to greet an American you’ve just met; (3) how to greet an American after having a few beers.

Videos from the rest of the presentation are on the uploader’s YouTube channel (we’ve sleuthed out that his name might be Dan).
