That was very cool. I'm also glad he said it was supposed to sound fake : I've always thought it was obvious, but I remember getting into a very heated discussion about it some years ago on these forums (fun times!). Now the truth has been spoken!

It's still a very awkward scene, though.

Just to clarify: the scene was written to have a bad, terrible laugh.  JAT nailed it.  Unfortunately the script writer and director both deserved to be fired because they should have listened to it and been like "Yeah, this isn't working, we need to change it."

If virtually everyone hates something after a decade of putting up with it then that's just what we call a mistake.

Some people hate the narration overdub for the majority of the game as well - but that's at least more of a subjective thing.  Some people like it, some people don't.  The artistic team made a creative choice and whatever.  That's how it goes.  But everyone hates the laughing scene.  That's just a mistake.  But it's not your fault James.  James... it's not your fault.

I have no problem if you hate the scene, but back in the days of the debates,  to deny that it was written to be intentionally fake..? That annoyed me.

I actually thought the Japanese version was worse.

I...sorta liked that scene? At the very least, I didn't think it felt out of place.

To me I mostly give Square a lot of credit for FFX, they brought voice to the series for the first time and on a whole Final Fantasy X had very high quality voice acting and script for a video game, especially for one that was released 15 years ago. This scene was mostly forgettable for me in my recent play through of the game and didn't ruin anything for me.

Either way just enjoyed hearing the actor speak about it, and whether it's an awful scene or not it really doesn't ruin the game, so I would argue that the script writers and directors didn't need to be relived of their duties for this one arguably lesser quality scene.
