If you’re touch down in London’s Heathrow Airport soon, get ready to watch a 3-minute introduction to British culture from the most English man ever.

The presenter Stephen Fry is a comedic legend in the UK for his work in “Blackadder,” “Jeeves and Wooster” and “QI”, but some British news websites are calling his latest video “terrible” and “rubbish.”

Yet others are saying it makes them “feel 
all warm and British inside.

The clip — which was released this week on Heathrow airport’s free WiFi page — shows Fry running through several cliché examples of British etiquette. He explains the very British obsession with discussing the weather, lining up, the “after you; no, after you” loop, and the act of cheering whenever anyone smashes a glass.

If you watch the video too many times you could be forgiven for thinking that the UK is trapped in a time-capsule from the Victorian era.

The Telegraph reported that Heathrow Airport asked 1,000 visitors what they loved about Britain to mark the launch of the video. Here are the results:
