World’s worst attempt at a Geordie accent
I’m classifying this travesty of an accent as a hate crime, America. If he were dead the blessed Mike Neville would be turning in his grave; as it is, he’s probably just tutting mildly, or maybe he’s just pottering about in the garden and has no idea about this little viral news story, that seems more Mike’s style, bless him.
But for the rest of us, Jesus Christ that’s awful. And never mind the accent, or the insulting premise that he’d be taking an ESL class, or that the character is so cognitively impaired that it never occurs to him to just alter his word choice so he can be better understood, no, the most unrealistic aspect is expecting me to believe that a middle-aged bloke from Newcastle would be wearing a coat in winter.
