It’s Willis. But at this point so many people mispronounce it i don’t think it really matters.

Nothing like a man on YouTube in a fedora, misfitting suit jacket, and red undershirt that screams “credibility”! :CWL:

But in this case, he’s correct. It’s Willis.

Actually I’d like to take this opportunity to clear up this mispronunciation. Arnold was always incorrect in his reading of the Todd Bridge’s character’s name. It was “Will-ees.”

Sometimes I think a slightly lifted old minivan on ATs would make a good bugout vehicle. One that looks clapped out to hell but is mechanically solid underneath, so you blend in like greyman while on the roads

I would make sure I don"t say "willy" and then the rest I guess will be forgiven
