Owen Wilson is butchering the French language in new spots for Mondelez International’s Oreo peanut butter cookie.

In two new spots, Wilson is on a tranquil French park bench, touting the peanut butter Oreo after saying, in a very American accent, his name and the cookie. In one, he stops a passing jogger and asks him how to say peanut butter. After some awkward exchanges, Wilson ends up saying in French that “this is the Oreo sorry I don’t understand flavor.”

A second spot he is on the same park bench, being coached by a French man with a walkie-talkie hiding behind a tree. In the same manner, Wilson blurts out everything the man says, even though he is not talking to Wilson, to comic effect.
