Simpsons character Groundskeeper Willie may live in Springfield, but his sympathies still lie back in Scotland. He comes out in favor of Scottish Independence in a hilarious video that sums up the issue in black and white.

Willie has the slogan “Aye or Die,” written on his chest.

“That’s not a tattoo, that’s a birthmark!” he shouts.

Scots will vote next week in an historic ballot that could see the nation leave Great Britain, made up traditionally of England, Scotland and Wales.

Willie sees it this way. “Now both sides of this argument have valid points,” he reasons. “The freedom loving heirs of the highland tradition and those who enjoy crawling like worms beneath British boots.”

The groundskeeper notes that polls show Scots split 50-50 on the issue. “I am hesitant to throw my support to either side, be it the right one or the obviously wrong one!” he shouts.

Life outside Great Britain won’t be so bad, Willie notes. Scots will have exclusive control of their whiskey and North Sea oil.

But the irascible Scot has an ulterior motive.
