* A very good non-British variant - call this I Am Very Northeastern American - comes from George Feeny, the high-school principal on the classic TGIF sitcom ''BoyMeetsWorld''. It's educated Bostonian - the voice actor William Daniels picked up when portraying JohnAdams in ''Theatre/SeventeenSeventySix'' - but it sounded very peculiar in a modern American context, especially on a program where all the other characters' accents (except for the very {{Joisey}} [[TheMafia Mafia]]-like delinquents, of course) were either Californian or vaguely Midwestern. Equally oddly, Daniels was born in Brooklyn, New York!

* Averted in ''VideoGame/AssassinsCreedIVBlackFlag''. Edward Kenway, the game's protagonist, was originally planned to speak like this, but when MattRyan was cast they decided to keep his natural Welsh accent, and change Edward's nationality to match. This change is lampshaded in-game - as part of the game's meta-plot, Abstergo plans to re-dub Edward's lines with "a voice like JamesBond".
