An Australian man has left thousands injured after exposing how Australians tend to behave when visiting America.
Tamz Jade has made fun of how Australians usually accentuate their accents overseas to make it known where they’re from.
In a sketch shared on TikTok, she performed two scenes to compare this habit: how an Australian would order McDonald’s at home versus overseas.
She pointed out how Australians call hot fries “chips,” the difference in pronunciation of “water” and “no,” and mentioned that “American money only has one color.”
TikTok comedian Tamz Jade (pictured) has mocked how Australians typically accentuate their accents overseas to convey where they’re from when visiting America.
In the videoTamz acted like she was ordering a Quarter Pounder meal, soft serve ice cream and a bottle of water in Australia.
But her accent changed significantly while pretending she was in America.
“Hello, hello, hello, how are you?” How are you ? Could I have a Quarter Pounder meal and a soft serve ice cream, and can I put a little extra salt on the chips?’ » she said, emphasizing the word “chips”.
She then stopped, looked around with a smile on her face and repeated “chips”.
“Oh sorry – ‘fries’ – I’m from Australia. In Australia we call them chips,” she said with a laugh.
Tamz then asked for a bottle of water and repeated this request several times, before repeating it again in an American accent.
She also made fun of how Australians pronounce “oh no” and how McDonald’s is shortened to “Macca’s.”
She made fun of how Australians call hot fries “chips”, the difference in pronunciation of “water” and “no”, and the fact that American money is one color.
The funny video has since surpassed over 796,000 views and many have admitted to behaving the same way.
“Every time I hear an American accent, my Australian accent becomes 10 times more Australian,” one said.
“My accent becomes intense Julia Gillard when I go to the United States. They love our accent,” said another.
“They were losing their minds every time I said ‘water,'” wrote a third.
Someone else said: “My mum legit speaks in the most normal Australian accent but my dad had to translate for her in America. I didn’t even realize she had an accent.
“My husband never says ‘mate’ in Australia, but it’s like every other word when he’s in the States,” added another.
“I had never said ‘Hello’ in my life before I was in America, and I had apparently forgotten how to say ‘hi,'” someone else wrote.
