Someone attempted a Geordie accent in a US TV show and it’s the worst thing you'll ever hear

We’ll put our hands up and be the first to admit that a Geordie accent is one of the trickier regional UK voices to get right, but this is still utterly ridiculous.

It’s the kind of accent you’d create to represent the people of Newcastle if you did zero research other than watching Brad Pitt in Snatch and then just spoke to a few Scottish people, before having a cursory glance at a few Geordie buzzwords.

It’s horrific. It actually stings your ears.

Never do this again America. Never ever do this again.
