Catchy song will teach you how to pronounce Pete Buttigieg

Marcus Gilmer

With the 2020 presidential race already heating up for Democrats, one of the most perplexing questions has been how to pronounce the name of South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg.

Butt-i-gig? Beyoo-tee-geeg? It's a tricky one but thankfully there's now a helpful guide to getting it right and it's in song form.

The ditty is courtesy of Aaron Nemo, a writer at The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, where Buttigieg has actually already made an appearance. It's nice to see things come full circle.

A longshot when he entered the race, Buttigieg has since generated a lot of buzz with profiles from the Washington Post, CNN, NBC, and plenty of other places. Not that an early buzz is an indication of a future nomination; just ask Ben Carson.

But it's hard to deny the fascination around the young mayor with a funny name and a Twitter celeb husband, especially in such a crowded field of Democratic heavyweights.

So watch the video on repeat to learn how to pronounce Buttigieg because the first debates are just a few months away.
