TGIF: Bill The Language Guy from The Amazing Race October 17, 2008

Posted by Jill (@bonnjill) in Fun stuff.

I’ve been trying to stay away from the computer for the past couple of days to get my tendonitis flare-up under control, but I couldn’t leave you guys without the weekly video. For those non-US-based viewers, The Amazing Race is a reality show in which multiple teams race around the globe to ‘amazing’ locations for $1,000,000. It’s a big hit here in the U.S. and is now currently in Season 13. Being totally averse to anything reality-show-related, I have never seen the show, and based on this clip I know why. This guy has the audacity to think that the key to winning the race is being able to try to talk to people in their own language, even if he does it badly. The look on the cab driver’s face is worth watching the clip. Enjoy!

No idea why the link isn’t working, but click here to view it directly in YouTube.

Uh oh! “We’re sorry, this video is no longer available”. Looks like the copyrighters beat me to it 😛
