WATCH: British Slang in a Southern U.S. Accent

What do you get if you cross Catherine Tate with Forrest Gump? Probably this video. Or a scene from the Twilight Zone. Either way, watch my attempt at a general Southern U.S. accent while uttering British slang. It's weird. It even messed with my own head. But, by golly, it was worth it. Enjoy!

As a native of Alabama, all I can say is " Bless your heart"...... Thank you for knowing that there is more than one Southern accent .
Seriously, there are British accents and Southern accents that have some of the same sounds. The south was settled by mainly by people from the British Isles, so makes sense.
