The funny clip was shared by popular social media user @kulanicool on Twitter and shows a boy seated in a car as he attempts to read the name, which reads: “The Amazambane Volkorust.”

“Amazanbane” is the IsiZulu word for potatoes, however, the boy's pronunciation of the word is in English and instead sounded like “Amaze-m-bane”. The man recording him in the car can be heard laughing out loud at the boy without even bothering to correct him.
