Californians Try To Pronounce Hawaiian Towns… And It’s Hysterical

There are no doubts that the Hawaiian language can be tough for those who have never been exposed to it, but what happens when you ask twelve Californians to pronounce the names of Hawaiian towns? Well, let’s just say, the results are pretty disastrous.

I remember first moving to Hawaii and making a game out of trying to pronounce Hawaiian street names with my husband – I really hope we didn’t look like these people. After watching this video, I feel much more confident in my ability to pronounce Hawaiian names.
