One in Five of Us Think Our Fake British Accent Could Fool a Brit

British accents are hot right now.  There was a story last week on how young people sometimes shift into one when they’re nervous.  And TikTok is full of instructional videos.

But according to a new poll, some of us don’t think we need the help:  One in five Americans think their fake British accent is good enough to fool an ACTUAL Brit.

19% say their accent is so good, someone from England wouldn’t be able to tell.  Men are twice as likely to be cocky about it.  25% of guys think their accent could fool a Brit, compared to 13% of women.

Young people are also way more confident than older Americans.  Only around 5% of people over 45 think they can do a convincing accent, compared to 35% of adults under 30.
