Huawei's School of Pronunciation helps you learn how to say the manufacturer's name
Fast forward to 2015 and Huawai is once again teaching the public the proper way to say its name. This time, the company rolls out pronunciation coach Gordon Friend from the "Future Facing Association of Pundits" (or FFAPS) to show how to correctly say the names of several soccer football players. Friend uses a number of odd tools (including Cher) as a way to help his class learn how to pronounce these players' names.
Finally, it is time to move on to sponsors' names. And sure enough, the first (and only) name we see is Huawei. Underneath the now familiar logo, we see the phonetic spelling for the brand, Wah-Way.
It's a clever video that is obviously aimed more at European consumers than those in the U.S. where European football stars are relatively unknown. Huawei, by the way, is a sponsor of the Arsenal Football Club in London. You can check out the clip by clicking on the video below. Now, can you say Xiaomi?
