As part of the recent series of Witchmas gifts from Netflix's The Witcher, the show has released a compilation of the popular earworm "Toss A Coin To Your Witcher" in a dozen different languages. It's sort of like the official montage of Geralt of Rivia grunting a bunch, only more musical. Joey Batey, who plays Jaskier and is the English voice of the character, is of course included, but it's maybe most delightful to hear the song in Italian or even Japanese.
"A tune which has traveled the Continent and back, proving that music is a universal language," the official website for the show says of the video. While most folks in the show itself speak the same language, the popularity in our world is very real. It seemed to take both Netflix itself and the composers by surprise just how popular it was.
