Auburn Accent Challenge: British Dee Ford reads the names of Auburn coaches, players, and expressions in a proper Medway brogue

Apparently there’s this thing that lonely teenagers from Ireland and England and places like that do, where they read words aloud in front of their webcams so lonely American teenagers on Tumblr or something can hear how they talk. They call it the accent challenge, or the Tumblr Accent Challenge. Kids these days!

And do you know what one of the first words is on what seems to be the standard Tumblr Accent Challenge vocab list? “Alabama.” And they also do this thing where they ask you what you call tennis shoes or Coke (I’m totally calling it fizzy juice now) or your grandparents… or—and I think this might have even been first—throwing toilet paper over a house.

And it gave me an idea. [Can’t see the video? Try here.]
