That infamous programme is widely known here. In Russian he failed to understand the question "which day of the week is it today?"

Also, please don't post passages in other languages without translation.

Read it again. Everybody knows he's failed in Viva El Lunes, but this is comment on the
Brazilian talk show. Apparently he failed there too.

I once watched a video which includes the bits he got wrong and a bunch of other stuff he got right, so I think his feats are quite impressive anyway. That one should be pretty easy to find in youtube too.

He doesn't sound particularly modest, so I'm inclined to think he is actually less proficient than he claims to be in all languages, but that's really hard to judge even by the bits he's bashed for. For example, '¿A qué estamos?' is as simple a question as it gets in Spanish, yet I'm sure few people here knows what it means, and many natives would need context to it -- but the meaning would be obvious to anyone *after* an explanation is given. So I don't think such 'proofs' carry much weight.
