"Hard to say, easy to fly." That's the title of a rather clever little video from the folks at Turkish Airlines.
All around Istanbul, Turkish Airlines has found people willing to give it a go at the pronunciations of Turkish Airlines' more exotic destinations, like Guangzhou, in China.
The video is a bit like Jay Leno's "Jaywalking" segments where the audience laughs at the cluelessness of the average person, when, most likely, they themselves also have no idea. We even admit to having no idea how to go about voicing a few of these cities. As one can imagine, it helps if you've been there (the case for Ljubljana, Leipzig & Guangzhou for us).
You know who would definitely have to know how to pronounce all of these city names? The people at Istanbul Airport, who announce airline departures to them!
Watch the video, then figure out how many of the cities you can correctly pronounce (full list below).
