Watch: Maine Accent Perfected by Audio Book Narrator
If you're a dyed-in-the-wool Mainer like me, it probably drives you absolutely nuts when you're watching a movie that takes place in the Pine Tree State and the actors butcher our accent. Pay attention Hollywood! Professional audio book narrator and Bar Harbor native Matt Haynes is here to explain how to get it right and he is right on! When he's practicing an accent, he recites song lyrics. Lucky for us Blimpsters this entertaining instructional video gets even cooler at 4:47 when he says the words of Led Zeppelin's Going to California, Downeast style!
