Famous person in America and Mila Kunis knows who you are and Mila Kunis knows that you fancy her
Well, the last time I said, it was like 2012. So that was at a point where she definitely wouldn't have
Taylor Swift where did Ed Sheeran grow up answers on a board? Okay
Is that correct
I didn't even know that either born Yorkshire raised suffer the place where you were born is the place where your birth happened
Now to raise somebody is to take care of a person until they are grown
So to be raised is another way of saying to grow up if you grew up or spent your childhood
Living in a specific city, you can say you were raised there
Example I was born in raised in Colorado
It seems like a lovely environment to raise a child in
Oh, by the way
You're more than welcome to look under any of the furniture because believe me you won't find any porn or cigarettes under there
Tyler next question for you, who is Ed Sheeran's celebrity crush?
To have a crush on somebody is to have romantic feelings for someone
Especially someone you do not know. Well in the case of this question Taylor is being asked what celebrity Edie has a crush on
Me got my secret crushes here Mila Kunis my secret crush
Was it well I'm
involved now
But yeah in the context of personal relationships to be involved is to have an active exclusive romantic relationship ed
Sheeran is married nowadays, but back when this interview happened, he was already in a relationship with his then girlfriend
Is it awkward Edie if you say oh I fancy Mila Kunis and then all of a sudden near the most famous person in America
And Mila Kunis knows who you are. You probably know that as an adjective fancy to find something that is expensive
Sophisticated or connected with a high-class way of life in the context of their conversation though
We can hear the verb to fancy to fancy
Somebody is to be sexually attracted by somebody when referring to objects
It could also simply mean that you have a desire for it. This is very commonly used in British English
Example, I thought he fancied me. So I asked him out on a date
Do you fancy going out for a meal after work?
Is it awkward Edie if you say oh I fancy Mila Kunis and then all of a sudden near the most famous person in America
And Mila Kunis knows who you are. If something happens all of a sudden it happens quickly and without being expected without warning
Seems like all of a sudden so much is happening. I know Ross is getting married Phoebe's making people
everybody's doing stuff
so

Next question is for you ads. What is the moment that you realized you and Taylor were actually friends
Let's see. If you both think of the same thing the moment you crossed over from being musical pals to like Genoa we're friends
What do I what do I write like this is the city the time the time? Yeah
Experience the exchange of texts the love letter whatever it was Taylor. Are you remembering the first time you thought we're friends?
Yeah, I mean, yeah
I mean I mind might be a different time than his cuz I mean I was sold very easily
But I might have had to earn
You're saying
No, Phoenix right in a song in it
I walked in the room. I thought maybe I would have taken it like maybe six months for you to like me
mad cuz I
Walked in because I didn't really know I didn't really know what was gonna happen and I walked in and I was just greeted by
Cat I was I are sound this will be fun
The moment you crust over from being musical pals to like Genoa we're friends Pal is an informal word for a friend
You know, what is an informal expression used to indicate that you're going to say something interesting or surprising next?
Example she lied to me again, but you know what? I really just don't care anymore
The game the game you always money for the game
You know what you guys it's the first time. Why don't we just forget about them? No, we'll pay
How does another answer already?
And you know what we want a rematch what's following we could use the money
the moment you crossed over from being musical pals to like Genoa from being musical house like
The moment you crossed over from being musical pals to like Genoa we're friends
Taylor are you remembering the first time you thought we're friends?
Yeah, I mean, yeah
I mean I've mind might be a different time than his cuz I mean I was sold very easily but as you know to sell
Normally refers to giving something in exchange for money in this case, though
Taylor is saying that she was sold very easily on her friendship with Edie
Meaning that she was convinced or started believing that they were friends very quickly without the need of developing the relationship for too long
Example after seeing the presentation I'm sold on this investment
Let's do it on the other hand. If someone is not sold easily it would mean they are difficult to convince
Example I wasn't sold on spending our vacation on a cruise. I fancied doing something more adventurous
You're saying
No Phoenix right in a song in it Phoenix at the capital city of the state of Arizona in United States in it is a
Slang way of saying isn't it ed is just asking Taylor if she agrees with him
I
Walked in because I didn't really know I didn't really know what was gonna happen and I walked in and I was just greeted by
Cat I was I are sound this this would be fun to be greeted
It is to be welcomed by somebody with particular words or actions
In this case it is saying that tailors cat came to greet him as he went inside and I walked in on a wolves in
And I walked in and I was just greeted by cat
I was like sound this this will be fun
Sound is a British slang expression that is used the same way as the expression cool used in American English
Example how you doing sound man?
Hey, are you and Ed Sheeran fan?
Well, I just created this playlist with all of our lessons teaching you with Ed Sheeran and his music
You can watch that after you finish this one by clicking up here and down in the description below you
Were really nice and there was chocolate
You know that that sold me actually because I I always looked
like American performers as just people that eat grapes once a day and just
Just kind of like I'm just gonna inhale some air. You know, I just had a gust of wind
I'm caught I was I was expecting to go there and be like, ah
Can I have a burger if Taylor's gonna have a leaf of salad and then she's like right let's get burgers
I was like sound called your animal style. Um adds American accent is my favorite
I had some error and I don't know
Okay, that means you do know each other very very well because you both got three all which means we go to the tiebreaker
How many views has your duet?
Everything has changed had on YouTube
It doesn't it's completely irrelevant
But we were in a rush and this is all we could think of this is my question
Both of you the nearest answer wins
So you both write down how many views has everything has changed had on YouTube as of 7:45 this morning
Okay at straight away with an answer there. Let's start with you Ed you're saying I think is 106 million ornately enough
106 million near enough that it's too
300 million because I just do because I'm cuz I'm optimistic
The correct answer is a hundred and eleven million four hundred ninety eight thousand four hundred ninety nine
Which means ed sheeran you are the winner
Rana Plaza ed sheeran
you get to
there
You were really nice and there was chocolate
Burger in an out burger is an American fast-food restaurant chain tailor is saying that they ordered burgers from in and out
you know that that sold me actually because I I always looked like
American performers as just people that eat grapes once a day here ed says he used to think American singers were all very strict
about their diet
So he jokes that he was expecting an artist such as Taylor to only eat once a day
Having some light fruit such as grapes as a meal
I always looked at like American performers as just people that eat grapes once a day and just just kind of like oh
I'm just gonna inhale some air, you know. Oh, I just had a gust of wind
I'm cool
When we inhale we take air into our lungs through our noses and mouths then we exhale or breathe the air out again
Because of what he was previously
joking about the idea
He had of American artists diets IDI is now joking that he thought Taylor would be satisfied having air as an option for food
I'm just kind of like oh, I'm just gonna inhale some air, you know. Oh, I just had a gust of wind
I'm cool a gust is a strong a short flow or burst of air and wind is moving air or a breeze if
You say you are cool. It means you are satisfied. You don't need anything anymore
Example, do you need help finishing that project? No, I'm cool. I'll finish it in about 15 minutes
Ross Ross over here, man. I say Jesse
That's okay, I'm cool over here. I'll catch up with you later. Enjoy I
Was expecting to go there and be like, ah, can I have a burger if Taylor's gonna have a leaf of salad man?
She's like right let's let's get burgers. I was like sound cool a leaf is a part of a tree or plant
That is usually flat thin and green like in this picture a leaf of salad would be for example a piece of lettuce
By the way, maybe you notice that when Ed says this he's imitating an American accent
Although not very well, and then Taylor makes fun of it. Just kind of like, oh, I'm just gonna inhale some air, you know
Oh, I just had a gust of wind. I'm cold Ed's American accent is my favorite. Can I have a burger?
Burger I had some air and I don't know I like
It's interesting to note that oftentimes when non American English speakers tried to do an American accent
They over exaggerate the nasality
While the American accent is more nasal than other English accents
If you are trying to sound like an American be sure to avoid overdoing it as that does here then she's like, right
Let's get bug as long as I sound cold you animal style. The host is asking if they ordered their burgers animal-style
That is a special way in which the in-and-out restaurants can prepare your burger where they also add more ingredients to it
Okay, that means you do know each other very very well because you both got three all which means we go to the tiebreaker
So far ed and Taylor have the same score of three in the game
That means they are tied three to three in games normally in these occasions
There's a tiebreaker which will give one of the teams or players the opportunity to definitively win by scoring four last time
By the way, we did a hoe arias lesson where we taught all sorts of game related vocabulary like this with friends
I recommend you check that lesson out. You'll find it linked at the top and in the description below
How many views has your duet?
Everything has changed had on YouTube. This is about Taylor Swift and Ed Sheeran's collaborative song
Everything has changed the song had a music video on YouTube and they're being asked how many views that video had then?
Adieu wet is a song sung by two people
It doesn't it's completely irrelevant
but we were in a rush and this is all we could think of if you're in a rush you're in a
Situation in which you have to hurry to do something especially because you do not have much time
Okay, add straightaway with an answer there. Let's start with you add
Straightaway means immediately without delay you're saying I think is 106 million or near enough
hundred and six million near enough that stupid
Cuz I'm cuz I'm optimistic him optimist I
Cut him off to mr
Taylor had no idea how many views a music video had so she jokingly gives the excuse that she was just being optimistic
about it
Meaning that she was trying to be hopeful about how well the video is doing in other words how much success it was having?
The correct answer is a hundred and eleven million four hundred ninety thousand four hundred ninety nine
Which means ed Sheeran you are the winner
Rana Plaza ad sharer
you get to
There a round of applause is a short period during which people are clapping
Normally at the end of a public speech or an artistic or sports performance
So the host is simply saying that edy deserves praise and congratulations
