Watch: American’s brilliant reaction to the Welsh national anthem

20 May 2024 1 minute read
Vlogger Favour’s reactions to the anthem are superb

Imagine hearing the Welsh national anthem for the very first time.

Imagine not having much of an idea about Wales, the Welsh or our rugby heritage.

Then imagine being implored to watch the anthem being sung before a Six Nations match against England in Cardiff. (Namely Wales’ famous 30-3 victory against England in 2013)

When you do, you film yourself and your reactions are absolutely priceless – and your comments are suitably hilarious.


This was what well known American vlogger Favour Abara did on her YouTube channel, which has more than 200,000 subscribers. The results are absolutely brilliant.

Watch for yourself and enjoy – especially if you like to see us compared to fiercesome pirates!

Imagine her reaction if they’d used the anthem when sung at CCS when Wales play at home! Truly spine tingling and no need for a singer or band to cheerlead the crowd.

“Y’all clobbered them after that, though!” Yup.
