Paul McCartney Shows Off American Accent

At 71, Paul McCartney is as charismatic as ever, and on Tuesday, he put all of his various talents on display during an extended visit on “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon”: “Swapping” accents with Fallon, explaining old photos that proved he was way ahead of his time, and rocking the studio with three tunes.

First off, Fallon and McCartney did a bit backstage where they bumped into one another, and somehow switched accents. Fallon took on McCartney’s familiar Liverpudlian warble, and McCartney (somewhat less successfully) adopted an American drawl while chewing some gum. McCartney begged for his accent back, but Fallon was reveling in saying cool things in his new British voice, including “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo” and “let me see what you’re twerking with.”
