Weatherman does the impossible on air (Screengrab from Facebook)

There’s probably no word too hard for this guy to pronounce.

Liam Dutton, a weatherman for British TV station Channel 4 News casually nailed Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch — the name of a Welsh village, during a recent report. (No, that’s not a typo. This place actually exists.)

His spot-on pronunciation of the village name, which actually translates to “Saint Mary’s Church in the hollow of the white hazel near a rapid whirlpool and the Church of St. Tysilio of the red cave,” was shared in a video which was posted to Facebook on Tuesday. The clip quickly went viral with more than 1.7 million views and 18,200 shares. But is anyone surprised in its popularity?  The man’s basically achieved the impossible.

Watch as he just zips through the word as if he uses it every day, barely even blinking.

Now, just imagine how good he is at tongue twisters.

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.
