Weatherman's flawless pronunciation of Welsh village goes viral (VIDEO)

Liam Dutton has everyone hitting the replay button on a clip, posted to Britain's Channel 4 News Facebook page, in which he pronounced the name of a village in Northwest Wales: Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch.

First, of all: Yes, it is a real village. The 58-letter name means: Saint Mary's Church in the hollow of the white hazel near a rapid whirlpool and the Church of Saint Tysilio of the red cave.

Liam is kind of a ringer because he is Welsh and is in tune with the local pronunciation.

The video has been viewed more than 4 million times; probably by some ambitious people who want to try the word for themselves. But it's not as easy as he makes it look.
