    I've watched 20 episodes of the Real Hustle (uk), and seen the movie Braveheart at least 10 times and still believe this accent is the most difficult to imitate out of all the accents in the entire world.

    Have you ever attempted this challenge?
    I double dog dare you to try it!

    If you can mix Appalachian and Klingon, you won't be that far off.

    Scottish definitely isn't the hardest. In fact, it's one of the few foreign accents I can do somewhat convincingly. I could probably do a decent Sean Connery impression if I wanted.

    Funny thing, I actually get people randomly thinking I'm from Scotland, Ireland, or England on occasion despite being born and raised in Tennessee. I never really understood why.

    The key to doing Sean Connery is the word "goulash."

    Or a lot of bourbon. Bitches love bourbon.

    I find it easy, but any accent I do ends up sounding Indian, so it's hard to say.

    I attempted the challenge and it went quite well. I am Scottish though so I kinda feel like I Lance Armstrong'd it.

    South African is apparently the toughest to get right.
