Channel 4 (UK) weather presenter Liam Dutton is, according to his Twitter bio, a qualified meteorologist, writer and musician, though from Sept. 8 onward, he’ll most likely be known as the man who pronounced  Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch correctly live on air.

The tongue-twisting Welsh village has online guides on how to pronounce the name and apparently has the longest specific single-word .com domain name in the world, but Dutton’s impressive display of vocal dexterity may have really put it on the map.
