American Brothers Try to Say The Longest Town Name In the World


Eglwysfach Did you say******? Eglwysfach An eagle wise f**k. What’s up? We’re the Vagabrothers, and we are on a two week road trip through Wales. Welsh is an ancient language unrelated to English, and this is our attempt at pronouncing Welsh town names. May the best brother win! Ffynnon-Groes Crosswell Comins Coch Canolfan Gweithgarwch Llain Feidr Tywod I know we sound Irish or Scottish, or something. We’re just ignorant. Derwen-gam Oakford Mydroilyn Pontgarreg Llangrannog Maybe like Spanish…a double “L” is a “Y”. Llangrannog Brynhoffnant I said Brynhoffnant Not bad. Brynhoffant Brynhoffant. Got it. Cheers. Have a good day. We’re getting better at this. We’re getting better. Cerrig-ydrudion Bala. I got that one. Bala P-W-L-L-G-L-A-S Pwllglas Ruthin Rhuthun That’s the sign right there. Look at it. People taking names next to….. We have made it to the world’s longest town name, which translated into English goes a little something like this The Church of Mary in the Hollow of the White Hazel Near the Fierce Whirlpool and the Church of St Tysilio by the Red Cave. Now there is a guy who can pronounce this, who doesn’t speak Welsh. He’s a total G. This video has gone viral. You’ve probably seen it It’s the newscaster. “Just up the road>>>>>>>” Let’s go tackle it. Let’s try. We’re going to give it a good shot. Let’s go. It should be noted that this town totally renamed this place for the purpose of marketing, and that they have the town name written on this mall. When you put it into Google Maps, it takes you directly to the shopping center. I think that we should check out the shopping center just out of curiosity. Let’s change the name, make it ridiculously long and unpronounceable and people will come to the mall. Honestly, it’s worked. Mark, are you going to buy something? It’s working. Damn you, marketing. Ever the nerd, I have bought a cheat sheet [Dude, cheating] with the transcription. Even then it’s still hard because apparently the double “L” are a—– sound. I’m going to give it a shot. Let’s go.
