Hi Herbert,

Yes, of course! the Spanish language pronounce with the same sound, in  
other languages I know the B and V sound are different for the people  
who speaks correctcly, i.e. in Catalan, but actually the influence of  
the Castillan language made that many people, even Catalan speakers,  
don't do a good distinction. But on this case this is fun (for me) for  
several reasons: B and V confusion, a word that don't exist, and the  
man with his hat...

Thanks for looking
