Seth Meyers “Boston Accent Trailer”

This segment from Late Night with Seth Meyers, “Boston Accent Trailer”, parodies Hollywood films set in Boston and their treatment of language. It comments humorously on stereotypical lexical items (bro, wicked), the variety of accents portrayed (“the upscale Kennedy-type”, “the townie”, etc.) and the accuracy of those portrayals (“a British actor who’s trying his best but doesn’t quite have it”).
