This guy must be awesome at tongue twisters.
Before you ask, yes, Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch is a real place. It's a village in Wales with more than 3,000 residents.
And when Channel 4 News weatherman Liam Dutton has to say that incredibly long name in a forecast, he nails it.
I couldn't tell you how long he had to practice it, but he says it in the forecast with zero hesitation or mistakes. And it's made him a viral internet star.
The video has been viewed more than 2 million times on Facebook and has been shared thousands of times. Liam has even posted links to American anchors trying to pronounce the word during broadcasts.
Yeah, Liam ... but can you spell it?
Warm day in Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysilio...It may be a mouthful to say, but Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch in north west Wales was one of the warmest places in the UK today.And, it was no problem for our Welsh weather presenter Liam Dutton to mention it on today’s weather forecast.
