Who can understand this guy (Lost Tomb (盗墓笔记))?

Recommended Posts

The guy called Fatty (王胖子) from the TV show The Lost Tomb (盗墓笔记) is killing me. Even with the pinyin transcript in front of me, I cannot possibly understand what he is saying.😥🤣

 

Is there any hope? 😅

Who among you can understand him fine without transcript/subtitles?

I forgot. There is a way to get around it.

 

Here is the audio

You must have been hanging around with southern softies :D After sufficient years in Beijing and rural surrounds he sounds clear as a bell to me.

Haha, that sure is some grisly northern mandarin there, but I have spent enough time in that part of China now to be able to understand it. I think the situation is made worse by the fact that the guy he is conversing with is speaking super clear, newsreader-standard mandarin. I remember watching a TV drama called 奋斗 a few years back on the recommendation of many people here. That opening scene with the four boys speaking their Beijing Chinese was painfully difficult to understand, especially the guy in the white shirt with sky blue sleeves.

 

Keep practising the stuff you are bad at and it'll gradually get better. There's a really good film called 老炮儿 with lots of heavily accented Chinese. Also try 北京爱情故事 (the TV series, not the film).

This is what I get from listening to the audio (I have an ad-blocker so didn't bother clicking the link).  Parts in blue I missed the first time and had to listen to again.  The part in red I still can't figure out what it is.

 

我是跟踪您跟到这儿的,上一次咱们在内蒙的时候,我就怕这娘们儿后边儿有什么阴谋,所以出了内蒙我就一道跟着到这儿来。
你们怎么来这儿啊?

我们也是怕她们盗文物,所以就过来了

呦,那咱们哥俩这算不算就是***与缘分呢?

 

There are probably mistakes, but it should be the general gist of it.
