The "jag-u-are" pronunciation was a character thing.

Well in Britain it is and by the looks of this video it is how they say it in Canada, so I guess only Americans Pronounce it differently

The root word is Portuguese, Jaguera, which is pronounced the same way Americans pronounce it, though a little softer on the g for us. Britain adopted the word with their own dialect, but they are not the ones that are closest to the original in this case.

Thanks, that actually quite intresting. I like it when im wrong and someone actually bothers to tell me the truth about the subject matter so that i actually learn something for once. Plus it teaches me not to bullshit on the internet. :D

Sounds great.
I take two.

DVS BSTrD:
what are they going to do for horse power?

Given the Jaguars under the hood, you probably *don't* want to know... But that is going to be one stonking huge engine compartment!

MatParker116:
At least the cars don't make you sterile, although the Jaguar might.

Speaking of, I don't remember hearing about the mosquito spray in the Yummies product list. Or did they get sued so bad they had to stop making it? (lifetime supplies of snack cakes must be EXPENSIVE!!!)

Hungry Donner:
Wait, is that how Graham actually pronounces "jaguars" or is it a character thing?

It must be how they pronounce it in Canadia.

I've heard Europeans use a pronunciation like this before, so I wouldn't be astonished to learn that some Canadians also use it - but in the past I've always heard Canadians use "Jag-gwar." I'm more familiar with Eastern Canada than Western Canada, which may explain the divide.

Who need horse power when you've got jaguars

This is actually significantly less silly than real life - General Mills, better known for their popular cereal brands, also made a submarine called the DSV Alvin, which was used to (among other things) explore the wreck of the Titanic.

Yeah. I definitely want one now for my next car.

Actually if you hear the commercials here in the States, that's how the British announcer says it.

Lancer873:

It is if you're British. Go watch Top Gear.

Then I would have to watch TV... and that's just unacceptable.

I do what I must, because I can.

Thank god for that.

I like the implication that Yummy cars are less durable than Yummy sugar rolls.

Do you only have five letters? The G, e, a, r, and s? Is that why you're keeping the shots so they never have "GearsGear" in the frame at any one time? I'm not complaining, I'm just curious. Pretty neat trick, too.

DVS BSTrD:

pffft how about wild animal power, It is wild!

Thanks guys this gave me a big laugh, just what I needed right now :)

I was under the impression that it was done in greenscreen and the logo was CG, so they have potentially unlimited letters.

You are correct! I'm glad it looked real to someone though :)

Pretty sure I heard somebody laughing at the end of the stinger there (as Kathleen's hat fell off).
Anyway, awesome video! I wish my car came with jaguars... Because they'd be like the best anti-theft device ever.

Should have ended it with "for that special someone... You would enjoy seeing mauled".
Still a fun scetch as always:)

This'll never take off. I mean, think about it....
Don't the jaguars have to be water-soluble too?

....

What?

I did not know that. I hope Alvin isn't water soluble.

Also there's plenty of Korean and Japanese conglomerates which are involved in many different industries. Like Yamaha who make musical instruments and motorbikes, or Mitsubishi cars and consumer electronics. Not sure how many make "food" and cars though :)

EDIT: Also thank you Graham for the UK pronunciation of Jaguar!

I love how Mike lost his cool around the whole 'Jaguar' part. I guess even some of Paul's roles have their limits to how much stupid they can hear.

Personally, though, I'd want one of those cars. ^_^ I can give it as a gift to one of my car-loving friends.

Well, if you are coated in Skeeterpellant and eating Yummies snack cakes, I imagine your lifetime will be too short to get expensive.
(I was also listening for mosquito spray in the product list.)

Wow nice callback to yummies snack cakes there guys, I was hoping that DR Gibb would also make a cameo when i heard that lol.

Why is kathleen Drinking Hobgoblin? Thats my beer!

Mark Sauceman got this gig? How?! Skip Wheeljack was a totally better host than him!

Touche. Uranium Sulfate will do wonders miracles like that.

The head of Megacorp would be crazy enough to make this.

Meh, can't be any worse than the Great Wall Coolbear.

No, seriously, that's a real car, google it.

Mother accidentally killed by jaguar.

Then,

Kid gets insurance money, money from suing a car company, and inheritance.

Yummy Snake Cake Corporation sounds like a real competitor for Abstergo Industries and Aperture Science in the innovation industry, don't ya think?

Is that a bottle of Hobgoblin in Kathleen's hand during the stinger?
Delicious ruby beer!
