I'm glad Will is in Italy and not me because if I was there I would just be asking every person I met about prisencolinensinainciusol

If you have never heard of Prisencolinensinainciusol, it is an Italian novelty song from 1972 that is meant to sound like it has English words as lyrics but absolutely does not sound like English at all, not even a little bit

@alex when I read this song title, I hear John Roderick saying it 😂

@alex ok this is weird bc like two days ago I was gonna post asking if anyone had a working link to this song!!! I genuinely believe it sounds like English lol

@alex damn, I didn’t see this while there or I would have asked for you
