One of the most tell-tell signs that you are from the South is talking with a strong Southern accent. One woman decided to see just how hard it would be for her husband to drop his drawl in this hilarious viral video.
During the test, the man takes a simple sentence and attempts to say it two ways – with his accent and without. As you might expect, he quickly runs into some problems. Let’s just say that pronouncing the simple word “oil” turned out to be a little more challenging than expected.
Take a look at their fun experiment in this video.
The couple obviously had fun filming this video, even though the husband appeared a bit annoyed from time to time. It’s crazy how quickly he is able to drop his accent and how different he sounds.
Obviously, he has a long way to go before he’s able to speak normally without the accent, but it’s a start. Of course, he’s probably not going to try out many more of these exercises in the future.
