Jaap Scherphuis and Guus Razoux Schultz are indeed horror!!!

This remembers me of Rama in Lyon 2007 when he thought that I was French, thus trying to pronounce my name French-like. That was awesome! like [ʃtøfõ ybɜʀ]
instead of simply [ʃtɛfɑn hubær] :p

Erik, you missed me ;) People are always pronouncing my last name (Verhoeven) incorrectly. Dutch cubers FTW! :D

This is a very useful video. I had no idea how to pronounce Jaap Scherphuis.

I used to pronounce Akkersdijk wrong, (akk-ers-di-jike) but my friend pronounced it even worse. (akk-ers-d***)
