No One in St. Louis Knows How to Spell "Zach Galifianakis"
|This is how.|
Sorry, Galifinakis. No, Galafinikis. Gala-FIN-a-kiss?
Apparently, no one in St. Louis knows.
Now, let's be straight. Typos happen. Until five minutes ago, I had no idea how to spell it either. It is a thousand vowels long. But several local media outlets managed to screw up the star's name in headlines celebrating the comic duo's stop to promote their new movie "The Campaign."
It's not just that complicated surname, either. Some people, including Mayor Slay, even crumbled under the spelling pressure and got "Zach" wrong.
And then one more from the mayor's Twitter account:
It should be said, however, that both "Zach" and "Galifianakis" are spelled perfectly (twice!) in Mayor Slay's official proclamation (read it here).
Again, tough name! Really tough name. I write this at great personal peril since, yes, I also commit typos. But it seems like everyone collectively didn't even try on this one.
Check out the actors' appearance and remarks below. (And the YouTube auteur spells Zach's last name right.)
