Weatherman Has No Problem Pronouncing This 58-Letter Town Name
Sep 10, 2015
Dutton makes it look effortless, but we want to see the practice video. The one where he shouts to the heavens for maybe just fifteen fewer consonants. You can see the swagger confidence in his step as he begins to pronounce the name. "You won't trip me up Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch. I got you." You are a consummate professional Mr. Dutton. We salute you.
When you're a weatherman, there's no room for mispronouncing city names. It's just part of your job. This week Welsh meteorologist Liam Dutton has made headlines by proving exactly how a real professional handles oneself when faced with a seemingly unpronounceable city name. Marvel as Dutton tells the viewing public that Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch will see temperatures of 70 degrees, without stumbling. Then you try saying Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch. We've been trying for ten minutes.
