When people think of Final Fantasy X, some think of the terrific story which covers love, challenges religion, explores racism, so on. Others, think only of Tidus' horrifyingly bad laugh. Well, James Arnold Taylor has now released a video discussing his reasons for the obnoxious laugh and it might just give you more understanding about his acting.

Most people can't help, but cringe at the laughing scene in Final Fantasy X. Both Tidus and Yuna's laugh just sound cringe-worthy enough for a Razzie Award. However, Tidus' voice actor, James Arnold Taylor, has now come out in a new video to address the issue stating that the laugh was supposed to be bad. It's supposed to be cringe worthy and it's a part of the relationship between Tidus and Yuna.

Taylor also breaks hearts everywhere by stating that Tidus' name is supposed to be pronounced "Tee-dus". You can watch the full video below and be sure to subscribe to James Arnold Taylor's YouTube channel and follow him on Twitter @JATactor:
