These Out-Of-Towners Tried To Pronounce Upstate New York Names… And The Result Is Hilarious

There’s no doubt about it, we’ve all taken trips across the great state of New York where we’ve passed exit signs along the way that make us do a double take. To those unfamiliar with our towns that have names that can be quite a mouth full, many of which stem from Native American languages, it can be quite a journey to figure out exactly how you pronounce what you’ve just read. Watch these out-of-towners below attempt to pronounce places like Canandaigua, Skaneateles and Oswegatchie.

WARNING: You’ll have a hard time making it through this video without laughing!

Watching all of these out-of-towners struggle to pronounce these New York places was undeniably entertaining. I can’t speak for all of us, but I can assure you that the look of apprehension on these poor peoples faces when they were shown the word Coxsackie had me nothing short of hysterical.

Which place did you enjoy seeing these guys struggle with the most?
