Liam Dutton, a weatherman for Channel 4 in the UK, was presenting his regular weather report when he was confronted with a name so long that it stretched across the North Sea and into the Netherlands.

But Dutton, who speaks Welsh, didn’t break a sweat. (Click on the image below to watch the video).

“Now today, we had a big contrast in temperature across the UK, just 12 degrees over coastal parts of Eastern England, with cloudy skies,” he begins, before gesturing to the 58-letter name towards the bottom of the screen.

“But in the sunshine, in north-west Wales at RAF Mona, just up the road from Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch, the temperature got to 21 celsius.”

The tongue-twister took him more than 4 seconds to say, but he did it flawlessly and with a straight face.

Fitting for a forecaster, he has a sunny outlook about his newfound international fame.

“Thanks for all the kind comments about last night’s weather forecast,” Dutton posted on Facebook.
