Hack Worthy Indeed

Yesterday's story on the Radio Times poll about Brits doing American accents was so good that both the BBC and The Sun picked up the story. It must be important when stodgy old Auntie Beeb and a sensationalist red top cover it, right?

Both included the quote from Helen Hackworthy about Dick Van Dyke's accent.

Just as Dick Van Dyke struggled with his English accent in Mary Poppins, so too are some Brits failing to pull off convincing American accents.”

Time elapsed since premiere of Mary Poppins:

15,9678 days

Time elapsed since someone mentioned D.V.D.'s accent:
