Aussie Formula One driver and honorary shoe-booze chugger Daniel Ricciardo loves Texas so much that he’s actually become a Texan, trading one endearing accent for another less endearing one.


Also, just look at his shoes! I sincerely hope he tries to drink out of those.

Must be all the tacos he’s eating.

Well, it’s either that, or he’s just a drunk Australian.

As a Texan, I just wanted to offer an opinion that is somewhat vaguely not really related to this video. I think “y’all” is a very useful word, and I think all English-speakers should use it. How else are we supposed to distinguish between second-person singular and second-person plural? It used to be that “thee” was singular and “you” was plural, but now “you” has taken on both of those roles, and it’s confusing. “You” should be singular, and “y’all” plural.

Once we get that mess straightened out, we can work on the real problems plaguing the English language, like the fact that there is a D in the word “fridge”, but not in “refrigerator”.
