Are You an Anglophile? You Must Watch This Right Now.

Are you obsessed with all things English? Do you find yourself devouring English television and casually using British slang in conversation? If the answer to these questions is 'yes', then there's a good chance you may be an Anglophile.

Webster's dictionary describes Anglophilia as "unusual admiration or partiality for England, English ways, or all things English." It affects 3 in 5 people around the world and has been identified as one of the fastest spreading obsessions on the planet.

To learn more about the symptoms of Anglophilia and how it can be treated, watch the video below, and be sure to share it with fellow Anglophiles to get them the help they need. 

Remember, you don't have to go through this alone.



Sometimes, it's better hearing me in a British accent. Click the red button below.


Laurence Brown is a British man writing his way through the truly bizarre world of America - a place he sometimes accidentally calls home and a place he still hasn't quite figured out after seven years. Thankfully, his journey is made 12% easier by the fact that his accent makes him sound much smarter than he is. For evidence of this, subscribe to his popular Lost in the Pond web series over on YouTube.

I'm doomed. Diagnosed around the age of eight or so, I think at sixty I'm in for good. Why fight it now?

American businessman Steven Grasse experienced so much anti-Americanism while in England during the Bush administration that it forced him to reconsider his Anglophilia and released his book "The Evil Empire: 101 Ways That England Ruined The World" in 2007. He even has a YouTube site. What is unusual about this is that most Americans tend to be Anglophilic to one degree or another. This goes against the grain. [Warning: A few swear words in the video. Nothing you can't handle.]

The 1981 Granada Television adaptation of Evelyn Waugh's novel Brideshead Revisited seemed to be tailor-made for Anglophiles in the US and Canada. It plays into the stereotypes of the English as being all tweedy and upper class. Don't all English go to Oxford and socialize with flamboyant aesthetes of aristocratic lineage and enjoy Champagne every day? Don't they all drink Chateau Lafite Rothschild in formal evening dress in places like Castle Howard? Of course they do! I saw it on TV!
