Weatherman masters pronunciation of Welsh town Llanfairpwllgwyngyll

Weatherman masters pronunciation of Wales town Llanfairpwllgwyngyll

Watch U.K. Channel 4 News weatherman Liam Dutton pronounce the Wales town Llanfairpwllgwyngyll with ease.

If you're not from Long Island, pronouncing town names like Hauppauge can be tricky. If you're not from Wales, properly pronouncing the Welsh town of  Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch is basically impossible.

But U.K. news station Channel 4 weatherman Liam Dutton mastered the daunting task in only one try.

"Now today we had a big contrast in temperature across the UK," he said during his broadcast. "Just 12 degrees at the costal parts of Eastern England with cloudy skies, but in the sunshine in Northwest Wales."
Luckily for him, a town just slightly south was experiencing particularly noteworthy warm weather.
"Just up the road from Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch the temperature got to 21 Celsius, that's 70 in Fahrenheit," he added, uttering the extremely long town name with ease.

A video of his impressive pronunciation, uploaded to YouTube by Channel 4 News on Wednesday, has gotten more than 3 million views in just one day.

It's not the first time fame has found the town. People Magazine notes that back in March, Naomi Watts told Jimmy Kimmel that she actually lived in the strangely named town as a child. Kimmel struggled to read it aloud. 

According to Today News, it's known for being the longest town name in Europe, but actually doesn't hold the title of longest in the world. That record belongs to the New Zealand town of Taumatawhakatangihangakoauauotamateaturipukakapikimaungahoronukupokaiwhenuakitanatahu.

Try mastering that, Liam Dutton.
