Oh, to have the confidence of this boyfriend who endearingly mispronounced “gnocchi” for over 2.4 million people.
A very specific TikTok challenge cropped up after Ron Iver tweeted a bold statement putting boyfriends everywhere on blast.

Kate Rabinowitz’s video of her boyfriend saying “guh-no-chi” inspired several other TikTokers to test their boyfriend’s Italian food knowledge.
It’s not just American boyfriends either, Australians struggle with the pronunciation too — their pronunciations just sound slightly fancier.
“My fiance said the same thing,” another person wrote. “I have to rethink our engagement now.”
