Weather Presenter Nails Pronunciation Of Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwlll­lantysiliogogogoch

Now this is a mouthful.

No this isn't a typo, Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwlll­lantysiliogogogoch is actually a place.

And while we won't even begin to tell you how to pronounce it, all you have to do is listen to U.K.'s Channel 4 weather presenter Liam Dutton absolutely nail it in the video above (we suggest listening a few times, maybe 20).

Dutton, who clearly knows a thing or two about weather and geography, can be seen commenting on Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwlll­lantysiliogogogoch (also known as Llanfairpwll), a village on the island of Anglesey in Wales, having a particularly hot day.

Although his segment wasn't live, Dutton told the Daily Mail he got it in one go.

"I managed to say it straight away. You just hope it will all come out at once," he told the tabloid newspaper. "Certainly in this news room, there would be a big sense of fear for some people if they had to read a word that long. So I think they were quite happy that it fell to me."

The name, which means "The Mary Church by the pool near the White Hazels" was created as part of a marketing campaign in the 1850s, according to the town's website.

Dutton, who has several years of experience as a meteorologist and knows Welsh, received a lot of love on Twitter after his weather report. He also started the #Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwlll­lantysiliogogogoch hashtag — which is already is 59 characters with the "#"!
