Hugh Jackman and Conan O'Brien's Chinese duet: So bad you'll either laugh or cry

18 October 2013 / 3 years 3 days ago

If you thought your Mandarin was poor, this video of Hugh Jackman's rendition of the popular Chinese jazz tune Give Me A Kiss (给我一个吻) on the Conan O'Brien show will give you some of your confidence back.

And as if it could not get worst, it did when funnyman Conan decided to chime in by singing along to the tune with what he thought was Mandarin, but was actually jibberish.

According to news reports, Jackman learnt the Chinese hit, based off Patsy Cline's hit Seven Lonely Days, as he had to sing that for his role as a night-club performer in the 2011 movie Snow Flower and the Secret Fan.
