The other day I went into a bunch of Chinese restaurants as an ordinary but kinda clueless white guy and ordered food in fluent Chinese (Mandarin and Cantonese). It was a really fun prank and social experiment to see Chinese people’s reactions - both the waiters and the other patrons in these NYC Chinatown restaurants were totally shocked! Thanks everyone for supporting me on my language learning journey - Fuzhounese videos coming up very soon!

    Ok so I started learning Mandarin the end of December. #Selfstudy but I also enrolled in a Chinese course in college for this summer. 2020 or whatever.
    I studied half of the Hsk 1 vocabulary and moved on to sentence structure just to understand wth I was hearing when watching my Cdramas.
    Now, I'm back to studying HSK1 words just to memorize it all and be a step ahead when I finally attend chinese class.
    So, I figured why not apply what I learned right?
    Simple stuff.
    Words such as:
    "Zhe Shi shenme?!
    And xiéxie and nihao.
    Simple stuff.
    "wo mingtian blah blah blah "
    I haven't expanded my Chinese vocabulary enough.
    Anyway, it's like- with the response I've been getting, they seem attitudinal and indifferent.
    Now, I don't know if it's because I'm black and I typically dress in street wear or my tones are off, but I think I have nihao, xiéxie and Zhe Shi shenme Memorized after hearing it over 100 times in over five cdramas in 300 episodes combined.🤦🏾‍♀️ I'm certain. #HumbleCauseiKnowNothing
    So, with that being said, I became discouraged to speak what I've learned.
    I've come to the conclusion to wait to speak what I've learned, take a course in college and take PRIVATE lessons on the side si that when I'm as advance as this guy, I can later TROLL like him too. 😂
    It only makes sense

    It's really not impressive that you know Chinese. people are bilingual all the time, being white doesn't make you special.

    First, your chinese is far from being perfect. Check out 马思瑞 if you don't know what perfect is. Second, you did not shock them. In fact, it is really creepy and disrespectful that you zoom in on strangers' faces and make comments on their facial expressions. Not a fan.

    I've been working in a Chinese restaurant as the frontman for 6 months now. Everyday they teach me 10 words in Chinese. Can't wait to learn how to speak as good as you.

    Big deal, everyone else is speaking their native language in the video along with English.

    Why is it so amazing?

    70 Asian people in video speaking Chinese as well as English = No big deal.
    Why is it any big deal for youtuber to speak two languages? What about all of the other people in the restaurant who are speaking English?

    Got me scratching my head on this one.

    Is making your video named clueless white guy a super trigger on the YouTube algorithm? 24 million views in 1 month dude... All of Chinese America loves you.
    If I'm honest I'm really jealous of videos you film like this. I know some haters are gonna be like Yo this guy just walks around flexing Chinese eating food vlogging. But you know this takes absolute concentrated power of will to do. Firstly just gaining the confidence to solo some visits like this is incredibly easy to procrastinate or chicken out on. The reason that it's so hard to learn a language in the first place is because the vast majority of us can't find the courage to endure the embarrassment of making a fool of yourself when saying words that sound completely foreign to you.
    This guy is not only willing to learn a language but is willing to face the ridicule of the internet for the purpose of finding entertainment in culture. It's true lots if us abc that can speak Chinese are like... Umm more than half the Chinese community can speak English and Chinese...
    Really the entertainment value comes from the shock factor. I mean I know a lot of people are making a face in the videos because obviously there's a video recording device around and everyone gets angsty when a guy is walking around with a recording camera and as I am of course impressed by the skill but more than anything... The interactions he creates are so disarming the people no longer feel on guard and you can tell the reactions to his chinese are 100% genuine.
    Great concept, please do a collab with strange parts. Build an iPhone in NYC... Get scotty to eat food. Maybe try to look for a contact at tasty or a cooking channel to introduce Chinese food to the western world. I mean the more authentic stuff... Not super slimy in texture but... Similar to the Taiwanese breakfast episode you did before... But maybe actually get an interview with the chef with what's in the food... Why do Asians love those flavors.
    Or keep giving out chrysantimum tea... I love your production. Let the good times roll.

    This is pretty cool. At the same time, I really wouldn't want to. The language doesn't sound that nice and the way they eat with the chopsticks looks and sounds dumb rather just roll it up on a fork with a spoon play sit in my mouth and not have to slurp up the noodles. I'm at the end of the day you're doing all this to learn how to order the cheapest kind of food possible it's not like you're ordering like gourmet food it's just Chinese only does it not impress me much but I don't even trust the standards people are really dirty and they look like they have a lack of compassion for others I wouldn't trust that with my food. I started eating Thai food out and it's so much better than Chinese if I had to choose.
