‘Jersey Shore’ with British Accents

Subscribe to UPROXX

It’s amazing what a British accent and Victorian clothing can accomplish. In this video, Broadway players read dialogue from “Jersey Shore,” and they somehow manage to give the Guidos’ words gravitas and even a little bit of wit. From the YouTube description:

What if the characters of Broadway’s “The Importance of Being Earnest” traveled through a time warp and woke up on the beach with Snooki, The Situation and the rest of the gang of MTV’s “Jersey Shore”? In an exclusive video series created for Playbill by “Earnest” stars Santino Fontana and David Furr, the Roundabout Theatre Company cast puts “Jersey” in the mouths of Oscar Wilde’s famed Britons.

I can’t stress how much I thoroughly enjoyed all these videos (there’s more below and on the next page). You haven’t lived until you’ve seen a dignified, mustachioed British gentleman say, “If you leave, I’m going to stuff your nose with tampons!”
