He is very vanilla as an announcer.
As an Englishman, he sounds nothing like an Englishman. I had to google him when I first heard him speak to confirm he was English.
No his accent is just nothing like a normal person would use. Its even over the top for the old days when the BBC used to insist on Received Pronunciation for all presenters.
It is a very very posh accent with a Mid-Atlantic twist.
Yeah only because of the posh bit, mid-Atlantic I have no issue with, in fact i want to roll about laughing when I hear Gmac's accent.
Yea Gmac sounds like the Lucky Charms leprechaun from the cereal over here.
It's like Mark Wahlberg in The Perfect Storm, worst Boston accent ever and he is from Boston.! Maybe Abbott is doing it on purpose.
He annoys the hell out of me on Big Break. He needs to stick with covering Euro tour events....LOL
