  1. Ardderchog! Lovely to hear Michael Sheen siarading a bit of Cymraeg, although Llanfair PG and iechyd da need their slides amending. Beautiful accent. John is equally fascinating and a brilliant actor too – even angelic! However, both Sheen and Tennant thhe bees knees in Good Omens. 😍

  2. John Hamm is completely correct about the St Louis area lol. Only things he left out were the dangers of wearing a Cubs shirt in the city (people will yell at you unless there’s a game on, probably still will anyway) and the thing I have seen many people do that is stopping your car because you saw someone walking on the sidewalk or the curb then having a full conversation with them while still in the car (usually done in subdivisions and they practically park right in the middle)

  3. I love how they spelt Iechyd Da incorrectly using an L for some reason
    does neb yn siarad ffwcin gymraeg tho so mae'n iawn lol

  4. Welsh speakers, did you notice how the iPad showed an L instead of the I in "iechyd da"? I guess Sheen was too nice to correct it…
