But what exactly is ‘Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch?’ Is it a bird? Is it a plane? Is it some made-up word used to confuse the heck out of everyone? None of the above! In fact, ‘Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch’ is the name of a small village in north-west Wales. The 58-letter name is the longest in Europe, with people from all over trying their best to get it right but to no avail.
When Liam belted out the astonishingly long word, however, he gained over 16 million views on YouTube. Not only that, but he was interviewed by Wales Online, BBC Radio 5 Live, and Canadian breakfast television, as well as being featured in Time magazine, the New York Times, MTV and Perez Hilton for his fantastic work.
All of this for simply pronouncing a word correctly? Well, if you don’t think it’s a big deal, give the video below a watch. Then, you’ll surely understand why Liam has managed to win over the hearts of many.
