    It actually wasn't that bad until she got to the sentences.


    Edit: Oh wait - it gets much worse in the other videos.

    I was watching Grey's Anatomy with my best friend once, and it was the first episode Melissa George appeared in (can't remember her character's name).
    I started going "what the hell? She's trying to be British and she's rubbish at it, listen to her accent!"
    "Erm... she's Australian", replied my Australian best friend.
    Oh dear. :blush:
    My point being, I've heard some bad attempts at a British accent go a bit Aussie before, hence why I assumed she was an American badly attempting it.

    It also drives me mental that pretty much every American actor/ actress who tries to do a British accent will either do it in a really "PAWSH" way, or AWIGHT COCKNEEEY!
    Some of us do speak normally. :rolleyes:
    I don't think English people like Keira Knightley help matters, even she snobs up the accent in everything she does. Bah!

    That football hooligan film with elijah wood has a pretty shocking example of a terrible accent in.
    I think its called green street?

    One of the guys in that trying to do a cockney accent, My god. Its like an australian/cockney/newcastle hybrid. I dont even know where hes actually from, but its terrible.

    The one in the cream jacket. Thats not even the best example of how terrible it is, but its all I could find.
    don't get me started on how bad the accent where in that film :p:
    his from newcastle



    if you take anything from American TV most english people talk really posh, or have a cockney accent :p:

    Edit - I love how she tries to educate American's on the British Dialect but says 'I've been to the grocery market/store', no British person says store or grocery market, it's a shop. Silly woman.
