All eyes are on Iowa today for the Iowa caucuses, an event that occurs every four years and is significant for two reasons. One, it’s the first event in the nominating process for the presidential election, and, two, it’s the only time the rest of America pays any attention to Iowa.

Well, whatever you think you know about Iowa is about to change once you watch this amusing video. 

What do you know about Iowa, after all? It’s in Middle America, so it’s just a bunch of farms filled with backwoods conservatives, right? Wrong! Iowa filmmaker Scott Siepker is here to disabuse you of your parochial ignorance. He wants you to know that Iowa is a fairly progressive place with a lot of interesting history.

So watch the NSFW video below and maybe learn a thing or two about a place currently in the public spotlight.
