Chinese Speaking White Guys Catch Gossiping Nail Salon Workers Red Handed

292 885 Áhorf 30 m.

The other day we white guys who speak perfect Chinese went out to NYC’s Chinatown to the nail salon. They were “gossiping” about us (in a loving way!), not realizing we spoke Mandarin, and then we totally shocked them by switching to Chinese! We ended up having a really deep and interesting conversation with them in Mandarin and the rare Chinese dialect of Fuzhounese.
So to find out what they are REALLY saying about you at Asian nail salons…just watch the video! It was a funny prank / social experiment but also a really meaningful experience. Plus of course it’s interesting if you’re interested in language learning!

    I like that when people can talk to you in you're native language you realise that everyone is really nice in outside countries. I think I should learn English so I can talk to my girlfriend (Sorry for bad English I used google translate)

    I thought there was no such thing as speaking Chinese it’s Mandarin or another language. I thought the Chinese don’t call their language Chinese.

    Wow, I so wish we were friends when I lived in Chinatown. I really miss the city, Canal Street & especially the food! I speak Japanese pretty well but not Chinese & have had countless conversations like this. It's a beautiful thing. People just need to get to know each other, for real. Chinatown in NYC is one of the most interesting places in the world💗.

    I’m Taiwanese and I’m impressed. I know that most Chinese like to gossip with people, but once you learn mandarin or their language you are automatically friends

    Gavin can pass as a native speaker, with a Taiwanese accent. Did he learn Chinese at a very young age?

    Lol same with me and spanish. Although admittedly 3 different chinese languages are significantly more difficult to learn. Kudos.
