Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious! Hey guys! I am able to say Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious now I hope I just got this right but can Japanese people on the streets of Tokyo do the same? We’re gonna go and challenge them. So CathyCat is gonna head off to the streets of Tokyo and Ask Japanese. Name me a word that you think is really long. I can only think of “Congratulations.” – Good one And you? – Thursday. The spelling! On that note, here comes a super long English word. It looks sickening. – Is that one word? Supercalifragili… SEX… dolce… say. – Give it a go. – What? Super Califlower Kore Diss Filali Docious. No clue. – Let’s read the Katakana for it Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious Good job So I’m sure you don’t know what it means Guess what it could be. – An animal or not. Docious… maybe it’s a mythical animal. Like a dragon. Going to “Ikispiari” You mean that part of Disney? You are kind of close. This word appears in a Disney Movie. What? – Marry Poppins. – What was that again Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious – What? Do you not know it? – Nope Have you heard about it – I have! – Where? At Disneyland!

It’s being used in the song there “very wonderful…” and it’s a constructed word.

  1. Wassup Cathy cat!!!! Woooow is hard to say that word lool
    Make another vídeo in german is a cool language but its a hard language lol

  2. Hi Cathy, are you gay? Your personal channel hints strongly at it. Is it a no no in Japan to be gay trying to make it in the entertainment/media industry?

  3. Would have been more funny if it was the actual longest English word: Pneumonoultramicroscopicsilicovolcanoconiosis (a lung disease/illness) (excluding the scientific name of Titin because it's 189000 letters long)

  4. Random really long word in my language, hungarian:
    It means something along the lines of: For your (plural) actions of being unable to be turned unholy. It's weird.

  5. You should do the same but with foreigners and with the name "Jugemu Jugemu Gokō-no surikire Kaijarisuigyo-no Suigyōmatsu Unraimatsu Fūraimatsu Kuunerutokoro-ni Sumutokoro Yaburakōji-no burakōji Paipopaipo Paipo-no-shūringan Shūringan-no Gūrindai Gūrindai-no Ponpokopī-no Ponpokonā-no Chōkyūmei-no Chōsuke"

  6. Fun fact; though there isn't enough space on the board, you can spell Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious with Scrabble letters

  7. That's such an old song… it's from the first Disney made Mary Poppins movie from 1964.

    Ironically, how they keep saying it's just a long word, that's how I feel about how long all these Isekai titles that keep coming out lately.

  8. Although the people in this video didn't say it very loudly they still managed to sound precocious.

    Not the longest word in English, but I found this one today, hippopotomonstrosesquippedaliophobia, but I'm afraid that I have trouble pronouncing it.

    Is there any hope that in the future there'll be a reading of Gerard Nolst Trenite's poem, The Chaos?

  9. "lentokonesuihkuturbiinimoottoriapumekaanikkoaliupseerioppilas" and
    "epäjärjestelmällistyttämättömyydellänsäkäänköhän" long words in Finland 😂😂😂

  10. They should try long german words like "Rindfleischetikettierungsüberwachungsaufgabenübertragungsgesetz" or "Grundstücksverkehrsgenehmigungszuständigkeitsübertragungsverordnung" XD

  11. Clearly you just watched Marry Poppins again recently; which isn’t a bad thing, it’s a good kids show! I’m a man who hasn’t seen that movie for around about 20 years! 😂
    Over here in the States across the pond, you pronounce it exactly how you pronounced it here in this video! You’re bringing back good memories, KittyCat, thank you! 😂
    And of course, your curled hair looked very pretty, cutie pie! ☺️

  12. Just Google: According to the Oxford English Dictionary, "supercalifragilisticexpialidocious" is a real word that means "extraordinarily good; wonderful." In the film, the word is meant to be used when you have nothing to say.

  13. 「リュウグウノオトヒメノモトユイノキリハズシ」
    is name of a kind of eelgrass in Japanese.
    word in Japanese is basically short!

  14. When I was a child, there were two non-sensible words that I memorized simply because they were non-sensible. First was Supercalifragelisticexpialidocious when I was watching that movie, the second one being KAMEHAMEHA after I discovered the beauty and brutality of Dragon Ball 😀

  15. At first, I thought this would be kind of cringey, but I was pleasantly surprised at how many people recognized the song and liked it.

  16. That was actually a lot of fun to watch. It wasn't completely out of the realm that they would know the word, even if it didn't look like it to them at first.

  17. I liked the chalange, it was pretty difficult to pronounce untill i listened to the song, but it is really fun 😂😂✨..
    Cathy i suggest you to use this world next time 😁
    Can you imagane it means cholesterol just cholesterol 😂😂😂😳😭!!!
