Do your Canada Day plans include a backyard barbecue with family and friends? (Socially distanced, of course) Watching fireworks from afar? Here's another way to celebrate our country while you're squirting the condiments on your burgers and hot dogs.

Walk Off The Earth (WOTE) makes music in varied ways — in this case with a ketchup bottle and a smokin' rendition of the national anthem. The band has joined with French's ketchup to celebrate Canada Day, and is inviting fellow Canadians to share their own backyard BBQ tunes (or version of O Canada) to help show some Canuck pride.

Join the fun, Happy Canada Day! 🇨🇦

If you need a reminder, here's the words. Let the music-making begin!

O Canada!

Our home and native land!

True patriot love in all of us command.

With glowing hearts we see thee rise, The True North strong and free!

Ton histoire est une épopée Des plus brillants exploits.

God keep our land glorious and free!

O Canada, we stand on guard for thee.

O Canada, we stand on guard for thee.
