Watch: The hilarious video of a Welshman coming home for Christmas

The hilarious video which has amassed more than a million views on Tik Tok

Picture the scene.

You’ve been away from Wales living in London.

You’re heading home for Christmas and you’ve just driven across the Severn Crossing.

You are heading into Wales. Excitement rises as you spot the Welcome to Wales – Croeso i Gymru sign confirming you are now back in God’s Own Country.

Then something miraculous happens. Your Welsh accent immediately becomes stronger as your surroundings provide a powerful surge in your Welsh pride.

A video demonstrating this particular Welsh phenomenon was a smash hit on Tik Tok, when it was posted on Christmas Eve last year. And it’s being shared around again – such is its brilliance.

The superb clip created by prodigious Welsh voice actor and hugely talented Impressionist Scheiffer Bates as he and a pal drove home to Wales, is titled ‘Every Welsh person returning to Wales from England’.

The video has so far amassed more than a million views with many comments confirming this is exactly what we all do when we return home to Wales.

If you’ve not seen it, we think you’ll enjoy it. If you have seen it, you know you’ll want to watch it again. And again.

*Caution – strong language.

You need to reevaluate what you think the word “hilarious” means.

This is low quality, and insulting to Welsh people

What people find funny or hilarious is subjective so if someone is easily offended and doesn’t find it funny it doesn’t mean it’s not hilarious to someone else. I’m Welsh and I don’t find it insulting
