As far as celebrity accents go, Harry Styles has a pretty sexy one. His Holmes Chapel, Cheshire British twang is just all sorts of posh and hot when he says things like, "Hello, my name's Haah-ry." But you know what's even hotter: The fact that he can do a really good American accent. IDK why, because it's not like we'd ever want him to lose his British drawl, but his American accent is just a really impressive/attractive party trick. And Harry pulled it out on Saturday Night Live last weekend during a skit called "Civil War Soldiers."
In it, northern soldiers are sitting around a camp fire singing a song called "Old New York" to raise morale. The song is super folksy and 1800s-ey, until Jimmy Fallon jumps in randomly with a totally 2017-worthy chorus of "Party at my parents house!" because the boring tune needed a "fat hook."
That's when Harry is revealed chained to a tree in the distance, dressed up as a southern soldier. And he's all: "You know what would sound good? Uh, if y'all did a bridge after that part," in this really hot accent that makes the fake beard he's wearing for the skit actually kind of cute.
Check out the moment below and prepare to fall in love with down-South American Harry.
But of course, we mustn't forget the first American incarnation of Harry was none other than Marcel the marketing guy from the "Best Song Ever" music video.
