French pronunciation of the most used word

Why is the man pronouncing oui as "oy'-ee"? It has made me doubt the rest of the pronunciations.

Thank you for any insight.

It's a pretty regular french pronunciation actually, "ou" always makes an "uuuh" sound like the "u" in the german word "Kunst" and "i" makes an "ee" sound like the "ee" in the word "bee", just shorter....so together they will sound like "uh-ee".
