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

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.

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

But did you not consider Harri Morgan, and a great many other cut-throats, too?

Hi Sion. I did, but Bart was by far the most successful in terms of the art of piracy and gave rise to the idea of a parle on the floating democracy that was the punk rock of the age.

Barti Ddu was a god fearing, moral (for a pirate) teetotaller. In what was was he like Jack Sparrow?

Hi everybody. I really admire the people in Wales. I’m just a foreigner living a North Wales for only 5 month. But there is something special in your language, your flag, your identity… I feel your red dragon like mine. Diolch.
