WALES — A Welsh weatherman was confronted with what appears to be the longest city name in history, but his pronunciation skills blow Mary Poppins out of the water.

Not unlike supercalifragilisticexpialidocious, the town of Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch sounds completely made up and altogether hard to pronounce.

But alas, nothing could stop the sun from shining over the town of what's-it-called on Wednesday, and weatherman Liam Dutton reported it without blinking an eye.

The 19-second video posted Wednesday proves Dutton may now honorably retire.

According to the village website, Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch is located on the island of Anglesey and has the longest name in Britain.
