Skip to comments.SHOCK VIDEO: Larry the Cable Guy (Using REAL Accent)
Posted on 07/09/2012 2:50:15 PM PDT by PJ-Comix
BTW, if you want to hear REAL rednecks speaking, I have a truly bizarre video from 1957 which I can post upon request. When you hear the real rednecks speaking you will understand it is very hard to imitate. And, like I said, the video is VERY bizarre.
Anybody out there need fainting salts to recuperate from the shock of hearing the REAL accent of Larry the Cable Guy?
Post the real thing, please. I love rednecks. Hell, I am one.
You are over reacting. It wasn’t that bad. where is the redneck/hick video?
I like his positive attitude towards America. Hope it’s not just for show, like his accent. On one of his shows he runs into an man who modified a car in honor of our Vets and Larry got all choked up with a tear in his eye. It wasn’t contrived, either.
He may not be a hillbilly but the tape sounds a bit fast which raises the tone a few octaves.
He has a redneck heart though. You just can’t fake that.
I have heard him speak about his past and his work in the tech industry.
In reality there are few rednecks left due to urbanization of all society including in the South. However, the video I have is of two rednecks in a low budget movie with terrible acting. Their redneck accents are notable plus the fact they definitely have redneck mannerisms. The video is both funny and strangely disturbing. Overall quite bizarre but the rednecks are definitely authentic. I just don't think you see many rednecks like this anymore.
This is not shocking at all. I was raised in the south and I know a real southern drawl when I hear one. Daniel Lawrence Whitney’s entire persona and southern accent seems completely contrived. This video proves that it is.
Good thang Larry found his niche or is that necke?
I can just imagine some comedian giving him advice:
Dan, (his real name is Dan Whitney) I got some advice for you. Rip off your sleeves, grow a beard, and talk like a hick. You’ll make millions.
Now here’s a redneck.
Jerry Clower - A Coon Huntin Story
I will be the first to say it...looks and talks like a phaggot in that video.
He had a mix of northeast accents there.....checking wiki (yeah, I know) he was born and grew up in Nebraska and did a lot of radio gigs in the 90’s - including in New England - probably picked up this accent for the skits on those stations....and kept in character for this one on the video
He’s from a small town in southeast Nebraska (not far from my first parish). They’re small town/rural folk out that way, with a mild twang but not a full-blown redneck accent. (Me, I’m a northern-urban-accented Chicago guy).
He said during a Hannity interview that he was from Maryland. I figured it was the southern part.
I have a 1957 video that has a bizarre scene of two rednecks. It is supposed to be a comedic scene but comes off as creepily menacing. I figure both rednecks to have been in their late 40s so they were brought up before television and maybe didn't even have electricity at home. When you're a kid growing up with TV, the Internet, and video games, you are way too urbanized to be a real redneck, few of whom actually exist anymore.
You could argue with me on the latter point but after you see my video of REAL rednecks, you would be hard pressed to think of anybody you know who acts like that anymore.
p.s. Junior Samples was REAL Redneck.
Um... He was born in Nebraska and raised in West Palm Beach. I lived in West Palm as well for awhile and, believe me, you could go a very LONG time without spotting a redneck. In fact, the nearest rednecks would probably be in Belle Glade or Okeechobee...miles away.
Redneck isn’t really a southern thing. There are native Alaskan and Canadian rednecks and everywhere in between.
He was raised from age nine in West Palm Beach. Not exactly Red Neck country.
Must’ve misheard. Maybe he said living in Maryland. Hannity usually doesn’t have my full attention.
Youve got me on the edge of my seat. Seriesly. You gonna post it?
As for real rednecks, I know some and a person cant make better, more loyal friends. If they like you, theyll die for you. If they dont, well... watch out for the stew. That thar ain’t no varmint meat. :-)
Anyway. You ever watch the tv shows about gator hunters down in Louisiana? You know, the ones where you have to read what theyre saying? Well, I can turn my back, close my eyes, not watch their lips move while theyre speaking and fluently interpret to English. I impress loads of folks with that trick on the weekends around here.
Now, come on! Wheres the vid? Is it on da utoob?
