With a Silent Q

So my husband came home and told me he needed to get a 'shenjen' visa. I thought he meant for some part of China, but no, he explained that this is a European thing. Later I saw the word, which is spelled Schengen and I guessed that the g would be hard, like the g in 'girl'. So what's a web-savvy girl to do but Google the pronunciation. And I found this:

Pretty cool. So I click the other videos that come up. Pronunciations for adobe, guacamole, brasserie.
And quickly I'm in a parody youtube channel.

I don't know about you, but this cracks me up.
If you have some time to spare (never kill, as Tock told us), try a few.
