    As a long islander myself, this is so perfect! It’s funny because these names come naturally to us but I have heard so many people mess up words like Hauppauge or Massapequa etc, way too many times!

    Such a great video! Love it!!

  3. Hi Steven,

    This is SO funny! I always thought those towns were pronounce totally different. I know in class you always say Long Island really represents you. This is a great way to sell you brand! Being from Long Island unites everyone together and it’s definitely fun to use this to talk about. It was such a funny idea for a video.

  4. Steven, really funny video and post! Although I am not personally from Long Island, being from the greater New York City area I definitely am always surrounded my Long Islanders and have heard about many of these towns you mentioned. I think being from Long Island and owning that is great for your brand and it was awesome that you incorporated that into this funny and creative post.
