(playful music) - So some of you guys might know we were recently on the Preston & Steve show. - Which is a really popular radio station in Philadelphia. - Yeah. - And they kindly invited us on the show to just talk about all things British, differences, cultural differences, basically what we do on our channel, but on their radio show. - Live on air. - For half an hour. - To however many people tune in, which I've heard is like, hundreds of thousands, like loads of people. - Loads of people. - Also, we were connected by one of our viewers. So one of our viewers emailed our management and Preston & Steve's producer and were like, guys, you're in London, I love Joel and Lia, I love you guys, can you please connect? And that's how it happened. So thank you so much to the kind lady that introduced us. - Yeah, it happened. You made that happen. So thanks for doing that. - So we did film some of our day, I'm not quite sure on how much we did film, so we'll just insert the footage now and then we'll get onto the slang after this. - We are at the W Hotel in Maxwell Square. (live radio show) - I thought it was the boyfriend went over and he got tackled, I didn't know he was chasing you. - (gasp) Marissa. - Wait, what, to get in? - Alright, let me start these again. (laughter) - [Lia] So look at this cool little set up they've got going here, this is so cool. I think it's gonna be live, how can our audience tune in? We should probably tell them. I'm gonna tell you guys online. - [Man] Its just interesting to hear your perspective what you find interesting about The United States and vice versa of what your perceptions are of our perception of you. (laughter) So you do basically three videos a week about-- - Three a week? Nearly four. - [Man] And so it's very casual that you have your... And I know you're best friends but has there ever been any romantic spark between you two? - Not at all. - Because we hated each other at first as well. - That first connection wasn't there. - That's probably why it works. - They're both super good looking. - Yeah. - Yeah, I mean just from our point of view it's like in 'Cheers' with Sam and Diane or any sort of thing it's, you know, there's this-- - Yeah. - I don't tend to take things home from restaurants like Americans just take it home. - My wife and I, it looks like we're packing for a trip. (laughter) - I have a question about that, you don't take it home because there isn't anything left or? - Is this a dumb thing? - Not really. - If we were somewhere and there's loads of food leftover, I'm like this is lovely. So just finished live on air, how was that? - It was so much fun, it was good! It's our favorite topic, American versus U.K., it was just really nice. - I know, I said a few silly things. (both laugh) - It was live, you can't edit out. - You can't edit that out. But we hope that a few new people from Philly get to find our channel. - Yeah. - And, yeah! - So if you do, whatever vlog this ends up in, if you did hear the radio show and you've subscribed, hello, welcome. - Well I'll just say, it's been a couple of weeks since we were on the show. - Yeah. - So we did actually guess some slang whilst we were there. - Yeah, we did. - But I can't remember any of it apart from w-i-t. - W-i-t, wit. - Wit. - So I can't even remember wit. I can't even remember this first one which is Jawn or you guys would say "Jahn". That's the first slang, I remember saying it but I can't remember what it is. - Oh, I actually do remember what this one is. - Do you? - It's a person, a place or a thing? Is it - - Oh yeah. - Yeah remember when he's like, it's a noun. - Cause it could literally mean anything. - Yeah. - And we were like, there's that like 'thingymajig', or 'whatsit' and we say 'whatsit' or and it's so you-- - It's anything, you could be a jawn. - I'm a jawn. - You could be like that old jawn. - Or this is a jawn. - Where's my thingy-jawn? - Oh, wow. - I think that's what they said it was. Let's check. - Anything, so it's just literally anything. You can just, so you just say-- - A person, place, or thing, it's a noun. Yeah. - Hi guys and welcome to jawn and jawn. - Jawn and jawn. This is jawn. - But as I said on the radio show, it gets confused between the name "John", because-- - Yeah It sounds like 'John'. - If you guys, in your accent obviously in ours it is 'jawn' and 'john', but in American they say like 'john' and 'john'. - (gasps) Oh yeah. - That must be really confusing if your name's John. - Thumbs up for Joel's american accent. - Thank you. - Let's get this to 1,000. - 1,000 come on guys. - Thousand thumbs up. (laughter) If you're new to this channel, we do lots of this sort of guessing slang as well as loads of other sorts of videos so click the subscribe button and the notification bell. - Yeah. - To be a winner. - A winner. - Heh, you'll be a winner. - We post videos thrice weekly. - Thrice weekly. - So there's lots to choose from. - So the person that sent this to us is a girl called Jenna. She e-mailed us a list of all the slang from Philadelphia, as with all of our slang videos we get comments being like, "That's not just in that place, I say that as well". So, don't blame us, blame Jenna. (laughter) - Youse, youse. - Think it's 'Youse' isn't it? - Youse. (laughter) - Youse. So the word is youse. yaʊs, yows, yaʊs? (laughter) - I do know this one, cause we-- - Youse. - We might say that here, like it's the same as like, y'all or like. - Yeah 'youse lot'. - Youse lot, yeah. - Youse. - Youse lot come over here. - It sounds really English so that's why it sounds really like midlands-y. - Yeah. - Like youse lot get yourself over there and do this. - Yeah. - Like it's what you might call like a group of kids, youse. - Youse. - But not youths, just youse. - Yeah. Jimmies, jimmies. - Jimmies, um does that mean, um, like pajamas? - Oh yeah. Cause we'd say jammies. - Get me jimmy jammies on, yeah. I get, oh, get your jimmies on. - Jimmies. - Could it be slang for like, a certain type of food? - Oh, right. - Like jimmies, could jimmies always mean pizza? - That's true. - Like jimmies. - Maybe. I was thinking it was something rude, but I'm not gonna say it on our channel. - Are you sure? - Yeah. - We'll keep it P.G. - Jimmy is another word for sprinkles. - Ah, what like cooking sprinkles? - So we call them hundreds of thousands. - Oh, hundreds and thousands. - Can I get some jimmies on my ice cream, that's cool. - That's good. - That's cool yeah cause in the U.K., you guys, well, maybe everyone in the world calls them sprinkles for some reason brits call them hundreds of thousands. - Hundreds and thousands. - Is it hundreds and thousands or hundreds of thousands? - I say hundreds and thousands. - Hundreds and thous- yeah I don't even-- - Do you say hundreds of thousands? - I just say 'mmm'. Hundreds 'mmm' thousands. I don't know what it is. - Hundreds 'mmm' thousands. - Hundreds and thousands, why do we call it that? It's so basic and like. - I don't know, we're just like, 'oh what's that, oh there's hundreds and thousands of them'. - Yeah. - Yeah I don't know. - So funny, but yeah so. - Sprinkles. - Philadelphians obviously call them jimmies. - Jimmies, okay. - I love jimmies. - Me too. Water ice. - Water ice? - Yeah, water, ice. - I know what this is, it's a snow cone. - What's that? - I dunno, it's something Americans do. It's like, well it might not be, but a snow cone is where it's just crushed ice and then they put, like, fruity syrup over it. - Oh, they do that, yeah that's so dumb. I saw that in Starbucks. - That is so dumb. - Just insult an entire nation. Oh yeah that's so dumb. - When we were at the food festival they put their ice all. - Yeah and they shaved the ice, didn't they? - Shaved the ice and put loads of sauce syrup on. - That is so dumb. - That's so dumb. - Oh my gosh, gonna get so much hate. I just don't get it, because here's my reasons. I don't like ice. - Yeah that's true you've got sensitive teeth. - I've got sensitive teeth and I can't handle it.
