I Made You Another Video

This is something I first saw someone mention on Twitter, and since then, I've seen a few more videos. It looked WAY FUN so I finally got around to making one myself.  Now, here's how it works: it's an accent meme (doi), so you record yourself saying these things and answering the questions that follow. Then you post a video and we all laugh at you because YOU SOUND SO WEIRD!

Here's the list:

Questions:
  • Your name and/or username
  • Where you’re from
  • The following words: Aunt, Roof, Route, Wash, Oil, Theater, Iron, Salmon, Caramel, Fire, Water, Sure, Data, Ruin, Crayon, Toilet, New Orleans, Pecan, Both, Again, Probably, Spitting Image, Alabama, Lawyer, Coupon, Mayonnaise, Syrup, Pajamas, Caught, Orange, Coffee, Direction, Naturally, Aluminum, Herbs.
  • What is it called when you throw toilet paper on a house? [on the night before Halloween?]
  • What is the bubbly carbonated drink called?
  • What do you call gym shoes?
  • What do you say to address a group of people?
  • What do you call the kind of spider that has an oval-shaped body and extremely long legs?
  • What do you call your grandparents?
  • What do you call the wheeled contraption in which you carry groceries at the supermarket?
  • What do you call it when rain falls while the sun is shining?
  • What is the thing you change the TV channel with?

I think there might be other versions of this meme out there, but this is the one I stole. Er, used.  Anyway, here's the video. Brace yourself, ladies and germs.



Now it's your turn, funny people! I let you point and laugh and me, so it's only fair that you offer me the same opportunity. Have you already done a video? Let me know and I'll link you up, yo.

  1. Ha! I thought it was 'meh-meh'. You've set me straight, Kristine.

    And for that I owe you my life.

    Loved this...and I would do it too, if I were so inclined. Which I'm not at the moment. I'll probably do it in three or four months and then everyone will be like 'what the f'?

  2. A.) Good job on that. The intro/outro music makes me wish I was in a fast-moving black and white western.

    B.) I'm not going to film myself doing this, BUT ONLY BECAUSE my husband and I have been watching those auto-tune the news type videos non-stop lately, and I'm afraid that if I read a list of words on camera he'd turn it into a song.

    C.) I have a box of tapes in the garage I can't throw away. I spent my heard-earned babysitting money to buy "Whitney" by Whitney Houston, and other 1980's and 90's classics... how can I throw them away now?

  3. I love your glasses. And I have that shirt.

    Oh yeah, and your meme made me laugh.

  4. FIE-YAH! That made me laugh really hard for some reason. I thought meme was pronounced mem. Like the french word.
    I might do this and try to pronounce all the words a different way, just because.

  5. I may have lost 8 minutes of my life watching this but it was a pretty good 8 minutes. I laughed, I cried, I was confused and I liked it.

    Good times.

  7. If making fun of Bostonian accents is wrong, I don't want to be right. FIE-YAH!

  8. erin: Oh just DO IT already. And when are we doing this giveaway?

    radmegan: Dude. Making it into a music video would make it EXTRA awesome. DO IT.

    thirtysomething: Thanks! (Marshalls) And thanks again!

    Lex: You're Canadian, right? You'll sound SUPER funny! I'm laughing already!

    Jen: I wish I'd prepared a speech...

    TwoBusy: You've never heard people call it a wagon? (DUDE. Don't tell me YOU call it a wagon.) It makes me erupt in eye-rolls. Like most things in life, really.

    AMo: Right? ::fist bump::

  9. I did not dry my hair after my shower this morning so, no video of my crazy hair today.

    However, be prepared to be disturbed, my kid, who I view as a New Jerseyan simply because I grew up there even though she was not born there and has never lived there, is calling "soda" by the name "pop" and "lollipop" by the name "sucker." We've only been in the midwest for a year!! Why has she betrayed her east coastiness? She's Boston born (no worries, I won't unfollow)) and has lived Mass or Georgia for most of her short life. WTF? Pop?! Sucker?!

  10. With a video this good, now I'd be afraid to make one and look like a dork. Or at least confirm the suspicions that people already have.

    Plus, I don't know how to make a video, even though I have a gazillion dollars worth of equipment to do it.

    Face it, you set the bar too high, Kristine!

  11. This was so funny!!! I loved it. We are quite different, my friend, but YET...we're related! We're sisters! We just HAFTA-BE. I heard how you say crayons. Hahaha!!! I mean, I'm not really laughing at you THAT hard, I just know that we don't say it the same. You are more of a "crans" lady. Or "cray-ins" lady. Oh, I really love this one. I might just have to videotape myself. Maybe...

  12. You are the blondest brunette I've ever seen. Keep the jokes comin' sister. Now about that Ed Hardy shirt..... Yeah, No.

  13. Some words are said different, but most are the same.

    Good job. You looked great.

    I loved the narration.

  14. Wait now--I'm old enough to remember vinyl and cassettes (yay for mixed tapes!), but I nevah heard of a Happy Meal with a record in it. For reals? I guess I was just deprived of Happy Meals as a kid. Okay, I don't guess. I totally was. I'mma do these memmy... er mee mee... um.. meme, too.

  15. i thought it was 'mem' too. kind of francais. but it's not.

    i might be inclined to do my own video for this. sometime. not today. i haven't any makeup on.

    ALSO. the caramel debacle must be a regional thing. i'm from new york and also switch between 'CA-ra-mel' and 'CAR-mul'. depending on my mood. or how it's being ingested? maybe. maybe.

  16. "Um, they're all dead thanks." Ha!

  17. "Oh, hello there."

    That made me laugh so hard.

  18. Loved this. You are a lot more soft-spoken than I pictured. Also, your hair volume looked fantastic. Don't let Husband tell you otherwise.

  19. It's DAH-ta. DAH-TA!

    Grocery wagon? That's the thing in the parking lot that I empty my two cartloads into when I'm done shopping.

  20. I love the boombox in the background. I know after the taping you put in some Bell Biv Devoe.

  21. Okay. Mine's posted. Hope you have some Sara Lee handy. This sucker's long:

  22. selected annoyances *just for you.*

    "What is it called when you throw toilet paper on a house? [on the night before Halloween?]"

    I call it "lame". I throw eggs, dude.

    "What do you say to address a group of people? "

    Well, since you're moving to Texas soon, you ought to start saying "Y'all".
    But I'm from the south, so I'm biased anyhow.

    "What do you call the kind of spider that has an oval-shaped body and extremely long legs? "

    Well, if it's in the house, I call it DEAD.

    "What is the thing you change the TV channel with?"

    I make the boyfriend do it. Since he's the one that's usually lost the Universal[remote] under the couch.

    Sadly, my lack of a video camera (not to mention lack of anything faster than a dial-up connection) means you all are spared, at least for now, of seeing anything like this on MY blog. Lucky you. But I enjoyed yours.

    PS, how do I pronounce "Caramel"?

    "Ccffhhhmmhh" (if there's caramel involved, I'm usually eating it!)

    Aye,
    Scratch
