RICHMOND, Va. (WRIC) — A video of people attempting to pronounce some tricky Virginia town names is going viral.

A Facebook page called “It’s a Southern Thing” posted the video on Memorial Day, and it has already garnered hundreds of thousands of views.

The brave participants were given locations, such as Ararat, Botetourt and Powhatan, to say. Some of the participants surprisingly succeeded on some of the names — but others, not so much. 

“Virginia is for lovers. And hard to pronounce town names apparently,” the post read. 

You can check out the viral video below. Can you correctly pronounce every location?
