Oh no: Americans watch Father Ted for the first time

They were most confused by the mention of a watching a film on the TV show to which they asked "What's filum? What's filum??"

And the attempt at an Irish accent? Please stop. 

The most odd part of the video was probably the pair that said they were attracted to Father Dougal. He wasn't exactly a sex symbol when the series first aired, but now that you mention it…
