When it comes to making a good impression – comedian Tom Rix has it nailed.

A rising star on social media, his videos have been viewed millions of times on Tik Tok – thanks to his love of a Welsh accent.

We might be a small nation, but when it comes to accents, you won’t find many better than our beautiful brogue.

However, trying to nail the subtle differences in the way we sound of is not as easy as it might seem.

Unless you’re Tom, that is.

The Welshman who bills himself as ‘the face of a thousand voices’, has amassed millions of likes and shares on Tik Tok, as well as Instagram and Facebook.

But it is his Welsh accent videos that have become hugely popular.

His latest video posted a couple of days ago of him ordering food in an array of Welsh accents has gone viral and already had more than half a million views on Tok Tok.

If you’ve not seen his videos you’re in for a treat. And if you’re from Llanelli, Cardiff, Swansea, Neath-Port Talbot, Wrexham, Newport, Merthyr, Anglesey, Rhondda, Aberystwyth or even Tenby then prepare to be amazed. (With apologies to Aberstwyth and Tenby!)

Watch and enjoy…

It’s the one accent that is not allowed within a thousand miles of Hollywood. Notice how all the Welsh actors never use their own? But the English actors do!

Tik toc is very devious and dangerous keep away from it
