Seth Meyers and Rachel Dratch Adopt a 'Boston Accent' in Late Night Video

Note to self: In a town where loyalty is king, don’t you ever think about putting jimmies on Seth Meyers‘ ice cream.

The Late Night host was joined by former SNL castmate/fellow New Englander Rachel Dratch on Thursday in an epic trailer for the nonexistent film Boston Accent.

In just under five minutes, Meyers commits to at least four different “wicked pissah” accents as he lampoons Beantown-centric movies like The Departed, The TownBlack Mass, Mystic River and Good Will Hunting.

Watch the trailer above, then sound off in the comments, “bro.”

    This was really funny, and for once, there were people from the Boston area who can actually do fairly good imitations of South Boston accents.

    The only correction is that the Kennedy brothers did not have upscale accents. Rather, they had a mix of South Boston/Dorchester accent, New England boarding school accent (like Katherine Hepburn mid Atlantic lockjaw), and received pronunciation (from when their father was ambassador to England). If you listen to old John Kennedy or Bobby Kennedy tapes, you will see that they sound like Southie thugs trying to speak the Queen’s English. No offense to them. They also sound sincere and idealistic.

    Actors who did not grow up in the Boston area should not try the accents. When they do, they all end up sounding wicked stupid.

    The skit was good and funny. Good to see Rachel in skit.

    Absolutely true and hilarious, But this accent belongs to a specific group and area–>South Boston, Dorchester…especially Irish-American. Overuse of words like “wicked, awesome, pisser” if used in many areas of Greater Boston would bring scowls.

    Always hate when folks try a Boston accent, because they’re usually horrible.. but this was wicked good. Definitely a Southie/Dot accent going on.
