There’s something unexpectedly entertaining about this viral clip of Irish people trying American accents
TikToker Noel Doherty also goes by the name of Noel B. Askin when he’s interviewing people for his funny videos – we see what he did there.
With that hair and that name, we’re guessing he might have taken the opportunity of attending a family wedding to make this recent video – which has gone viral.
Watch what happened when Noel asked a load of Irish people to try an American accent – with varying degrees of success.
@noelb.askin i asked a ton of irish people (none of whom are youtubers) to do an american accent! #irishaccent #americanaccent #ireland #accent ♬ original sound – Noel B Askin'
Who knew that a bunch of Irish people trying to sound American would be so entertaining? It found its way to Twitter, where it got plenty of love.
Ever wonder what it sounds like when you ask Irish locals to imitate an American accent?
Sixty seconds of pure laughter.

I especially like the woman who says "Right? Right?" Because I know so many women and men who do that … it's the current "Really?" annoyance. https://t.co/ABZMR1YtKu

This is fabulous.
I once had someone ask me, "When people from Europe talk like Americans, do they just forget to talk with an accent?" SMH, over and over… https://t.co/DG92WCS9DT
