This American Guy Goes Around Chinatown Speaking Perfect Chinese & Everyone Is Freaking Out

"I only know a few words" ๐Ÿ˜‚

We all know we should try to speak the local language when travelling, but most of us only manage a few basic words at best.

Then there’s the popular American YouTuber Xiaomanyc – whose real name is Xiaoma, and he just takes it to a whole new level ๐Ÿคฏ

Xiaoma films himself going around NYC Chinatown pretending to be – in his own words, ‘an ordinary and clueless white’ guy fumbling his way through menus at local Chinese restaurants. Suddenly he switches to fluent Mandarin and Cantonese leaving staff and patrons shocked.

Just check out some of these reactions ๐Ÿคฃ
