A funny video about the recognizable accent we've all heard in certain areas of our state. Done in fun; if you enjoy this, please share it! (no idea why this link isn't clickable, sorry!) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1-MHVxLXvVQ&lcor=1&lc=rL0RXQ8J_kgcmD8MF3aTAjf4wfZ0Bs hYXVorgovgw94&feature=vmdshb

Is this a virus? I would be very wary to visit that URL.

It's simply a shortened version of YouTube.com that you get if you choose to share the video rather than just copy/paste the link.
The accent shown is just a stereotypical, exaggerated version of the Baltimore accent.

Not a virus; this link may work better:

Sorry, it just looked sketchy because of the extra "." in the original link (I thought it was a fake youtube link) and it was coming from a poster with no previous history on this site.

I may watch it later. Thanks.

Totally understood; I'd be apprehensive too!

That's definitely a B-more thing. My uncle speaks with a much milder, less exaggerated version of that accent. In the DC area where I'm from I don't think there is much of an accent at all.

Oh yes, it's most definitely a Baltimore thing. Haha you're not likely to find this down near DC, but around Baltimore city and county, you'll hear it almost daily depending on where you live/work.

Whenever I am in Baltimore, I never hear this type of accent. Is this more prevalent among Caucasians living in the Baltimore/Baltimore suburbs?
