I am a sucker for a Boston Accent – tell me who isn’t. Some of Hollywood’s sexiest men have Boston accents from Mark Wahlberg to Ben Affleck my favorite Boston accent belongs to fellow dancer and Footloose remake star, Kenny Wormald. The question is, do California transplants into New England territory gain the accent? According to a few employees at Dick’s Sporting Goods, someone has.
In this new Funny or Die video, Patriots quarterback Tom Brady get accosted by an employee for his Boston accent when trying to buy a few golf polos. What makes the video so funny is that the employee doesn’t recognize him as Tom Brady at all but rather, is obsessed with his accent. It doesn’t matter that there are posters and cardboard cut outs of the sports star all around, they can’t get over that he’s from Boston. My favorite part is when a woman thinks he is Matt Damon and he storms out and pushes the employee, the woman goes, “Matt Damon, shame on you!” Trust me, it’s pretty funny.
