The clever folks at Buzzfeed filmed Americans watching father Ted for the first time. They didn't get it...

For Irish people, Father Ted is not so much a sitcom as a reality show.

From the phrases used to the admittedly over-the-top scenarios, they are all very familiar to Irish eyes.

Our neighbours in the UK also took to it, thanks chiefly to the genius writing and acting performances of those involved.

However, it seems the show never really made it in the US so Buzzfeed showed some random Americans an episode or two.

It is safe to say that most of them didn't have a clue what was going on. That said, some still liked the show, and Fr Dougal seemed to be strangely attractive to some of the first-time viewers.
