Can someone that understands spoken French way better than myself explain this whole Awaille Kevin meme? I don't get it at all.
It's actually a bit of a discouraging thing. After 4 semesters of French classes, I was finally feeling like I could read and write reasonably well, although this whole thing made me realize I really can't understand someone speaking at all. I read French Canadiens blogs a lot to try to improve and I saw this on a bunch of them. It's also spread to Montreal Impact sites, as well as on signs of protesters in Montreal.
This is the original. The part that caught on is the few seconds after :43
It's even been made into a constant loop.
And here he is in all his fame at an Impact match.
I thought I was doing well with learning French until I saw this meme on French sites and I don't understand it at all. Now I feel like an idiot who needs Rosetta Stone ASAP.
