Trevor Noah and Roger Federer’s Xhosa exchange on Swiss train goes viral
South African comedian and television broadcaster Trevor Noah recently went viral after collaborating on an ad campaign advertising the Grand Train Tour of Switzerland with Swiss tennis player Roger Federer. During the commercial, Noah taught Federer some Xhosa phrases, which is one of South Africa’s official languages, and the tennis great responded by teaching him some Swiss German.
The video, which shows the two celebrities smiling and having a good time while riding a train through Switzerland, rapidly went viral on social media. Some viewers, however, observed that Noah’s Xhosa was questionable and that he should take lessons.

Noah, born in Switzerland and raised in South Africa, has always been passionate about exposing his African ancestry and culture to a global audience. His recent work with Federer exemplifies the power of cultural interaction and the significance of variety.
The Grand Train Tour of Switzerland is a deluxe train journey that takes passengers through some of the most scenic routes in the country, providing stunning views of the Alps and other sights. The advertising campaign starring Noah and Federer aims to increase tourism and bring more visitors to Switzerland.
Noah, who will also host a new local show called “LOL: Last One Laughing,” is creating a reputation for himself in the entertainment world. His partnerships with other high-profile personalities only add to his growing fame.
