GUEST,brit BS: Why is the Geico Gekko a Brit? (205* d) RE: BS: Why is the Geico Gekko a Brit? 09 Feb 06


I am an English person who has been living in the US since August - the accent is definitely from London and would probably be classed as Cockney though it is NOT as strong as the majority you would hear (I used to live in East London when I was young and mine was very strong).

Regarding Charlie from Lost - he is actually from the town I am from just south of Manchester - he is fairly well spoken and though I know he's from this area he doesn't have a proper thick accent! If you want a Manc accent listen to the Gallagher brothers of Oasis.
