Cape Town – The Fake-Sign-Language Man has thrown South Africa in the spotlight. It has become the most talked about story this week even overshadowing the death of Nelson Mandela.

Thamsanqa Jantjies claims that he suffered a schizophrenic episode - he lost concentration, started hearing voices and began hallucinating.

While the deaf community and experts have blasted him for making meaningless gestures we are still left wondering what he was saying.

Jimmy Kimmel brought out a sign language interpreter and got the answers for us all on the Jimmy Kimmel Live show on Thursday night.

Watch the cringeworthy video here:
