Comedy star Jen Hatton's new video sees her American cousin coming over to visit

People in Ireland and America have plenty of similarities – our shared love of music and the craic and a flair for storytelling being a few examples.

However, nothing makes us more aware of the small differences between the two nations than when our American relatives come to visit.

That is the subject of a video from comedy star Jen Hatton.

Comedy star Jen Hatton's new video sees her American cousin coming over to visit

The video sees Jen’s American cousin coming to stay with her – and getting confused by everyday Irish words such as boot, gas, and grand.

To be fair to Americans, we’re not sure why the space at the back of the car is called a boot – but then, why on earth would you guys call it a ‘trunk’?

Later, Jen almost chokes on her crisps (not chips) when her cousin asks if Ireland is part of the UK.

Eventually Jen’s cousin thinks that she must have drank too many pints of Guinness.

Take a look at the video below.
