You've Been Pronouncing Adidas And Zara Wrong All This Time
Mind officially blown.
After hearing this news, nothing makes sense anymore.
You might spend a large portion of every day filling up your virtual shopping basket on the Zara and Adidas websites, but that doesn't mean you're pronouncing the names of your favourite brands correctly.
Yep, in a curious turn of events, it turns out that we've been saying a lot of them wrong and that includes both Adidas and Zara, which might look like simple words but actually have slightly more complicated pronunciations than you ever realised.
But luckily this video from The Today Show is about to school you on how to pronounce the popular brand names you thought you knew how to say but actually don't.
For example, do you roll the R in Zara to make it sound more like a D? No? Us either.
Apparently, these are the correct ways to pronounce them:
L'Occitane - Loxy-tan
Adidas - Ah-dee-dahh
Zara - Zah-da
Here we are thinking we're absolute shopping pros and you're telling us Zara has a D in it?! How could we have been so stupid?
Mind = offically blown.
