Stoo, He doesn't sound very British to me. More like an Aussie or something.

I would say aussie trying to put on a posh British accent - you can hear a real aussie accent in the background.

Saw that video on TV a while back (at least a year ago.) Probably on Max X or one of the similar shows.

Hope the helo was insured...

LOL... Is it true you need leather balls to play Rugby?

One of my employees is from Wales (although he was forcibly relocated to Canada by his parents when he was a child...). He takes vacation days when certain matches are one TV! And he refuses to become a Canadian citizen. Once a Welshman, always a Welshman I guess!

I hope not! Nothing Aussie about that background accent, even taking into account the silly TV voices.

I beg to differ - it is pretty brief but sound Australian to me!!!

I am pretty good on accent normally - can even tell sometimes what part of a city people are from. Even when it comes to Berlin after my mate went out with a girl from there.

Talking of Australian accents I remember in one of the Die Hard films(I think) the terrorists were supposed to be South African - they clearly had Australian accents - suppose it's all the same to the Yanks....

At least our men don't have girl's names and eat frog's legs and snails like they do in some parts of your country....
