    What is this man saying in this prank video?

    Hello,

    I am not able to understand at all what this man is saying in this prank video. I could not figure out from the comments also. It seems to be some song? The running time is about 2 minutes.

    Thank you

    You are right, it is a song, apparently by Shaggy.

    Several of the comments posted on the site say things such as "All the black people know what hes sayin but the white people are like wtf O_o"

    I am white, but my reaction was, "I do not understand" rather than, "What the f**k" (wtf)

    fivejedjon got it - it's a joke based on this song by Shaggy.

    He is saying "Mister Lover Lover" and also "They call me Mister Bombastic, Mister Fantastic" etc.

    It is really hard to understand, don't worry. Jamaican accents/dialects are very difficult to understand in general.

    Thank you fivejedjon and Munch.

    Munch, you are good detective because you found that song. I listened to the link you posted and then went back and listened to the person doing the prank and I was able to hear the words "Mr Lover Lover". And the sound after these words is apparently supposed to be music. And then I also noticed one person at the fast food place say to him - You are Mr Bombastic. What do you want? or something like that. So the joke is supposed to be that he goes and sings some unrecognizable song instead of ordering his food and thus confound people! Thank you Munch

    This Canadian-Indian comedian has a clip about Jamaican and other accents.
