First few seconds where he said "leally" instead of really.

I'm pissed that he got it wrong. You don't always swap the r and l. Asians usually say rearry. If you're going to mock, at least get it right...
Oh ffs is that it, I was waiting for something like this

I remember not to long ago Ntini made a noise, not even a word mimicking Murathitharan's speech and nothing was made of it. Seems black people are allowed to do it. Cricket players in case anyone was wondering.

If that is what he calls humour I can see why he chose to be a rugby commentator... :X3:

Commentators and pundits do impressions from time to time. Just saying.

I didn't have a problem with it but guaranteed if a white person had done it the poop would have hit the fan. Ntini refused to repeat what he said, which shows he probably thought he over stepped.

I know the feeling. The Chinese in my house goes batshit crazy when I use a fake asian accent.

Agree so much with this. It is important to get it light.
