Comical Stand Up brings this comedy clip by Anto Chan that is going viral. In ten days, the video has already garnered over 150,000 hits.

Anto discusses the complexities of the Chinese dialect Cantonese. For example, the word ‘gow’ can mean multiple things all based on slightly different pronunciations.

To show just how complex things can get, Anto recites a sentence in Cantonese that, to the untrained ear, seems to sound like, ‘Gow gow gow, gow gow gow gow.’
