Clueless White Guy Orders in Rare Chinese Dialect, Patrons SHOCKED

Megtekintés 3 938 904

Thanks to ExpressVPN for the sponsorship; go to and find out how you can get 3 months free! Today I went to NYC’s Brooklyn Chinatown as a clueless white guy and ordered food in the rare Chinese dialect of Fuzhounese. The other patrons in the restaurant were completely shocked!!!
It was a really fun prank and social experiment to see Chinese people’s reactions - both the waiters and the other patrons in Sunset Park were totally shocked! Then we walked around in the Chinese New Year parade and chatted with vendors and other people in Fuzhounese and Mandarin; their reactions were hilarious as well!
Thanks everyone for supporting me on my language learning journey - part 2 of these Fuzhounese videos coming up very soon! And also Happy Chinese New Year / Lunar New Year!!!

    The comment you made about how people are so happy that someone can speak their local language is so true. Back in the 90 and 2000s I used to go to Spain for 6 weeks every year for 20 years.
    Now Spanish is spoken in so many countries that if you spoke poor Spanish in Spain people are non commital about it but if while in the Basque area of Spain and you spoke a little Basco really badly they would react with a big smile because it is unrelated to any other language in the world so it meant you actually went to the trouble of learning their local language.
    The kindness that was shown towards me after learning just a little Basco was unbelievable.

    True story: In 2005 we adopted two sisters from Russia. Ages 13 and 9. They obviously considered Russian to be their secret spy code, and said nasty things about their new parents, as they eventually admitted. I plotted revenge.....and that is a dish best served cold. Ice cold. Fast forward to 2019. I was on a business trip and had been sending voice chats back and forth to my daughters all day. It was time to spring my trap. I spent HOURS online learning how to say "I always thought it was amusing that you girls never knew I speak fluent Russian." Then recorded it and sent it.
    Total lie, of course. But it had the desired effect.

    Interesting, in Japanese culture, if someone tries to give you something for free, you need to refuse it at least twice, or better yet, three times. Apparently, in Chinese culture, you just gotta show gratitude.

    Fuzhounese is not rare, there are actually 15 million people worldwide that speak it. If you want a dialect to show off maybe pick Maweihua which is a subsection of Fuzhou where less than 100,000 people speak it. Also Fuzhounese is quite similar to Minanghua which is spoken in Taiwan. You can also go to Shanghai and there are 18 subdialects to Shanghainese, example a person from Pudong has problems speaking to a person from Xuhui. These are all called bendihua which are native dialects. Having spent 20+ years in China if you want content I would glad to help you pick accurate topics. Also if you want to see language proficiency and funny you should look up 果童大叔, and language mastery look up 大山. Some of my friends were the first people on TV in China speaking Chinese such as 大龙.
