Graham Norton Show: episode four, season nine.

Personal note: this was not put up to offend, just to entertain. I love New Zealanders and their accent. All accents sound funny to others, and the way New Zealanders pronounce some words throws people from other countries off. Being an Aussie, I love our New Zealand cousins and I agree that our accent can sound hilarious too sometimes. Let's not hate on here please. Aussie, NZ, Irish, English, American.. who the fuck cares?

Graham, Reese Witherspoon, Robert Pattinson, Shappi Khorsandi, and Hugh Laurie hear someone talking with a New Zealand accent.

It's weird in NZ our accent sounds normal but if we go to a other country and hear our accent it sounds weird.

Dude has a strong accent. Must be from the south island. I rarely hear anyone speak like that in the north island.

While this guy's Kiwi accent was very strong, I've always thought that Graham Norton's accent was kind of funny too. I thought that all the laughing was a pretty extreme reaction though. Maybe a little laughter, as the accent was unexpected at first, but get over it!

I don't know why, but I think I understand every words he say, and I am from Indonesia... Why is it so hard for Graham to understand?

He sounds kiwi as, i don't know what you other kiwis are on about. Sounds like a typical pakeha accent and i don't mean that out of malice or anything. Sounds very south islander. My opinion. Each to their own.
