American comedian Kevin Hart and wife Eniko recently rang in their third wedding anniversary with a trip to St Lucia.

The funny man has been providing social media followers with constant updates on the couple's vacation and, over the weekend, boasted about his new 'island' vocabulary skills in a video posted to Instagram.

Presumably influenced by his wife, who has Jamaican roots, Kevin jokingly threatened to 'box yuh down' and playfully used terms such as 'gweh' and 'my yute', which are commonly used in Jamaica.

He noticeably also used a number of Jamaican 'badwords' which have been at the centre of a heated debate recently about the use of the expletives on entertainment platforms in that Caribbean island.

The post has attracted more than two million views and thousands of comments including from reggae stars Queen Ifrica and Tarrus Riley. Watch the video below.
