Who Owns Antarctica?

Antarctica is unique in a lot of ways, like being cold, hard to put on a world map, and fairly uninhabitable. It defies successful colonization for a variety of reasons -even mapping the continent is difficult because every direction is north. In this video, comedians Jay Foreman and Mark Cooper-Jones go into the sticky question of continent "ownership," but also the history and geography of Antarctica, in a rather entertaining way.  The video is less than seven minutes long; the rest is an ad.
