Travel company Big 7 conducted a survey, asking all of its 1.5 million Twitter followers to vote on the sexiest American accents. The Bostonian accent came at a surprisingly high number two.
"One of America’s most imitated and parodied accents, Boston almost comes out on top of the country’s sexiest accents," the company's website reads. "And yes, just like Mahhhhk Wahlberg, locals really do say “pahk yuh cahr in hahvuhd yahd."
Shout out to Mark Wahlberg, but I'm not so sure I would agree with those results. The thought of a Boston accent immediately brings me back to this scene from the movie Ted.
Texans came out on top, with New Yorkers securing a respectable third place. Interestingly enough, "general American" came out at number 32 on the list (think late-night talk show hosts such as Stephen Colbert).
Sexiest top-10 accents in America, according to Big 7:
3. New York
9. St. Louis
