Hi billyboggins,

I pasted this into YouTube, but could not get it to work. I'd love to see it. Any ideas?

Thanks! :)

Hi Meli,

No need to apologize! It means exhausted, very tired. Sometimes we forget that there are people on the Forum who are not from English-speaking countries, and may not understand some slang expressions. In fact, I'm from California, and I was pretty sure I knew what "knackered" meant, but I looked it up online to be sure, since I've never or hardly ever heard it used. I'm not young anymore, but I watch a TV show based here in Los Angeles that features a lot of young people talking about celebrities, so I sort of keep current with their slang, and they don't say "knackered" either.

I just really liked the video because Nicolas looks so amazing! ;)

"Knackered" is British slang, and it does indeed mean "tired, exhausted." I'm familiar with the expression because my friends from England use it. And when they're knackered all they want to do is doss down (go to bed).

Knackered or not, the boys still managed to produce those exquisite harmonies. And Nicolas ... ay Dios mio!

Hi Jusquin,

After multiple viewings of this video, I've noticed that both Canut and Paul seem to be highly amused that Nicolas can barely keep his eyes open!

Hi, Amanda!

I just watched it again a couple of times myself, and you're right! That is too funny! Now I'll never see this video the same way again ... .
