If the Brits Had Won the War, We Could Have Had an Awesome Accent

Newcastle's Stephen Merchant-Starring Campaign Continues

Editor's Pick

Last week, Newcastle and Stephen Merchant schooled us on how much better life would have been had Britain won the war. The campaign, created by Droga5 to celebrate "Independence Eve," continues, with a new video. This time, Mr. Merchant waxes poetic about the benefits of the British accent, which, he says, lets you "shag" anybody you want, since "chicks" in the U.S. love it. (Although, if everyone had the accent, it might not be as sexy.)

The accompanying site,, will feature more videos from the campaign, plus a map of what the U.S. might have looked like, and a series of alternate history lessons.
