Although she’s been living it up in New York and most recently LA, Abbey Lee, excuse the Kershaw, is a true blue Aussie. Launching a personal YouTube account this week, the model-turned-actress proves her Melburnian roots with a round of the “accent tag” game, which is apparently “so hot right now”.
Rambling off words like “route”, “caramel”, “fire”, “water” and more, the Ruben Guthrie star channels more of a Kath & Kim-inspired accent rather than her actual voice. Anyone who’s watched other videos of the Chanel model, or interviewed her themselves, knows that she doesn’t actually speak like this, which is probably why her friends are having a good laugh in the bottom left of the screen.
She even says “aluminium” the American way, if you will, before correcting herself to how we say it down in her homeland. “So that’s the Australian accent. Tell me what you think, guys,” Abbey says as she finishes off the video, which has over 1,000 views.
