He then offered a little insight into his background, telling Jeng that he’d been to most parts of the world, “unlike most Americans who’ve been nowhere”.
This prompted a brief chuckle from the interviewer, at which his new friend hit back asking: “You think I’m joking?”
He then continued his attack on Americans, remarking: “The breadth of their interest in other people and other countries is nil. The number of people in this country who have passports, except to go to Canada, or to Cancún…”.
Jeng then cut to his next question: “What do you love most about Americans?”
This invited a heartwarming plot-twist, as the man responded with a wry smile: “My wife.”
Jeng’s video of the encounter racked up more than 16,600 likes in six days, as viewers hailed the man as a “hero”.
“As a Brit this is a polite man in a good mood,” one wrote.
“We're spreading British bitterness everywhere, I love it!” commented another.
“Why is he so iconic?” a third asked, while a fourth said he made them “proud to be British.”
