goofy but brave

This is a 2009 video of an American kid trying to use his low-level French skills to order a pizza. I give poor Austin full marks for bravery. Were I in his place, at his age, I would be too scared to make a mistake. Such is perfectionism.

The video is more emotionally compelling than some movies and TV dramas I've seen: I sat through most of it in a half-cringing posture. Hats off to the Domino's pizza service reps for being much nicer on the phone than stereotypes would have us imagine.
