  • - So obviously we're British,

  • but we get told that the more we talk about American stuff,

  • the more we are becoming American.

  • really difficult to agree with,

  • so we got this quiz up from BuzzFeed,

  • - Yeah. - we're gonna respond to it

  • and we're gonna just go through it with you guys,

  • - Yeah. - and see what we get.

  • I'm gonna be triggered, if I turn out to be more American.

  • Yes or no?

  • - Yes. - Okay, mine would be no.

  • - Okay.

  • - Do sweet potatoes belong in a dessert?

  • Yes or no?

  • - No! - No, well,

  • - No way. - I don't think,

  • I wouldn't say they belong in the dessert,

  • but I would try it.

  • - So what's your answer, Joel?

  • - I'm gonna say yeah. - Okay, would you eat cheese--

  • - Would you eat cheese out of a can?

  • - [Joel And Lia] No.

  • - It tasted like-- - No,

  • she's never sucked a toe.

  • - I feel like so ill, that's disgusting.

  • You know what you were saying earlier,

  • - Yeah. - We're the same on that.

  • - Yeah, yeah, yeah.

  • - If someone says something that's like,

  • - Yeah. - got strong imagery.

  • - It meets with you, - Yeah.

  • - When you think of pigs in blankets, is pastry involved?

  • - [Joel and Lia] No.

  • - No, pigs in blankets is just sausage with bacon

  • wrapped round it. - Bacon wrapped round it.

  • - [Joel] But pastry, we'd never turn down pastry though.

  • - Oh no, I'd never turn down pastry,

  • - Bit of pastry.

  • - walked passed a Greggs the other day.

  • - It's basically a sausage roll then, if you include pastry.

  • - It's a sausage roll.

  • Oh, imagine that on your roast dinner,

  • just a couple of sausage, imagine how many sausage rolls

  • we're gonna eat as we approach Christmas.

  • - Oh, yeah, there'll be so many.

  • - Oh, so many sausage rolls.

  • - But we're trying to be fit, so.

  • - Skinny legends. - Hm.

  • - Have as many sausage rolls as they like.

  • - Yeah, they do.

  • A legend must always - Always.

  • - eat a sausage roll, - Sausage roll.

  • - whenever they feel like it.

  • - Okay.

  • - Do baked beans belong in a breakfast?

  • - [Joel and Lia] Yes!

  • - 100%. - A breakfast,

  • lunch and a dinner. - Yeah,

  • literally every mealtime

  • or a snack. - I love beans.

  • - You can now get baked bean pots, like a yogurt,

  • so you just spoon the beans out into your mouth,

  • you put them in lunchboxes, amazing,

  • we didn't have that when we were kids.

  • - What, the snack pots? - Yes, snack pots.

  • - They've been around years, Joel.

  • - Have they?

  • - Mum used to do the snack pots for me,

  • when I was like 15. - What, the baked bean ones?

  • - Yeah, the baked bean snack pots.

  • - I've only just seen them. - You've only just seen them,

  • but also isn't it weird that you think

  • that would go in a lunchbox? - Yeah.

  • - 'Cause you'd maybe eat it cold then?

  • - Yeah, oh, I love cold baked beans,

  • I prefer warm ones, but I love cold ones.

  • - You can have cold,

  • so you're not triggered by cold beans?

  • - No.

  • - I've only just got to the stage,

  • where I can lick the spoon of the cold beans

  • after pouring them into the thing

  • - Okay. - to go into the microwave.

  • - Yeah, hm-mm.

  • - So we differ there. - We differ.

  • - As if you would put in your kid's lunchbox

  • - Yeah. - cold beans,

  • - Cold beans. - they'll get bullied, Joel,

  • do you want your kid bullied?

  • - Yeah, character building.

  • I was bullied a lot and look at me,

  • - You're cheaper now. - Destroyed.

  • - I was bullied, look at me now!

  • - Look at me now! - Not insecure at all.

  • - Moving on. - Moving swiftly on.

  • - Do you use an electric kettle to make hot drinks?

  • Yes, that's simple. - Just call it a kettle,

  • - Yeah. - not an electric kettle.

  • - You can't get a non-electric kettle in the UK,

  • well, you can, but like people just say kettle,

  • - Yeah. - They don't say

  • electric kettle. - What's the,

  • so what would the other option be,

  • the one that goes on the hob and squeaks?

  • - Yeah, squeaks, the one we use for camping.

  • - Okay.

  • - When you make a grilled cheese sandwich,

  • do you cook them on the stove?

  • - No. - Never made a grilled cheese

  • sandwich in my life.

  • - [Joel] No, but we would use a toastie maker,

  • - [Lia] Oh, yeah,

  • like a George Foreman. - Yeah.

  • - Yeah. - Yeah.

  • - [Joel and Lia] So no.

  • - When you get cinema popcorn, is it buttered?

  • No, it's salted. - No, it's sweet or salty,

  • - Yeah, sweet or salty. - or mixed.

  • - Or mix, I love a mix. - We love a mix.

  • - [Joel and Lia] Do you consider these to be crumpets?

  • No.

  • - That's an English muffin,

  • - That's, yeah. - cut in half.

  • - That's an English muffin.

  • But I wonder if whoever created this quiz

  • thinks that they are crumpets,

  • so they think that we wanna answer yes,

  • - Yes. - that's an English crumpet,

  • - Crumpet. - but it's not.

  • - I wonder, I wonder. - Who knows?

  • - [Joel and Lia] Can a pudding be savory?

  • No.

  • - Puddings. - Can it?

  • Oh, yeah, but the thing is, - Black pudding.

  • - a savory pudding would be like cheese and grapes,

  • but that comes after a pudding, so it's like pudding option,

  • then there's like extra.

  • - I think they're meaning pudding,

  • 'cause Americans would call

  • anything sort of steamed a pudding,

  • so you could get like a savory pudding,

  • like a pudding in terms of like Christmas pudding shaped.

  • - We just consider pudding to be dessert,

  • - Yeah. - 'cause that's just the word

  • for dessert, so no. - So shall we say no?

  • - You got British, you're definitely more British,

  • thanks, BuzzFeed, you know that pigs in blankets

  • most certainly don't have pastry

  • and should be wrapped in bacon

  • and that pudding can be a dessert,

  • but also be eaten with a roast dinner.

  • - Oh, like Yorkshire pudding. - Pudding, oh!

  • - Oh! - Yorkshire pudding.

  • - Yeah. - Oh, I see, I love--

  • - So Yorkshire pudding is a savory pancake batter,

  • that is cooked in the oven

  • and it's so good. - And it turns into like,

  • just Yorkshire pudding insert.

  • - Yeah, insert. - I'm gonna insert a picture

  • of Patsy, my cousin's Yorkshire pudding,

  • she makes the big ones, that the whole--

  • - Like toad in the hole? - that food goes inside of it.

  • - Yeah, like toad in the hole. - like they do in Yorkshire,

  • - where the whole roast dinner goes inside.

  • - Amazing, if you come to the UK,

  • get a Yorkshire pudding with a roast dinner.

  • - Oh. - Incredible.

  • - You'd most likely be lost without your electric kettle,

  • - Kettle. - Kettle,

  • and can't imagine life without one.

  • - It's true. - That's true,

  • anyone who watched the New York videos

  • will know that. - She had to deal with life

  • without one and it was a nightmare.

  • - Oh, it was vile.

  • - Yeah, a whole 16 days without a kettle.

  • - Yeah, he got the worst of it.

  • - Yeah, I did, I really did.

  • - He really did. - I really did.

  • - She's miserable, no kettle! - She's miserable.

  • Get me out of here.

  • - Get me out, fly me home.

  • - Immediately.

  • I got American!

  • What?

  • - What?

  • - It says you're more American, Joel,

  • I just added Joel, 'cause it's more personal.

  • - I love doing that.

  • - You're more American, Joel. - American, Joel.

  • - To you, Joel, pudding is a sweet mousse,

  • that comes in a cup, rather than another word for dessert.

  • Baked beans are most certainly not a breakfast dish,

  • well, they are, 'cause I did actually vote

  • for that being a breakfast dish

  • and if you go to the movie theater,

  • you're definitely partial to some buttered popcorn, no.

  • - But you said no to that as well.

  • - I know, well I'm,

  • wait a minute. - Oh, that's odd.

  • - That's very odd.

  • - Maybe they just have a thing, where like on a quiz,

  • like the next person who does it gets this,

  • - Yeah, yeah, yeah. - the next person

  • who does it gets that.

  • - Well, I mean, it's fine, I can be American,

  • - Yeah. - I don't really mind.

  • - Neg. - I do think,

  • I remember saying once to my friends at university,

  • I was like I wish I was American

  • and now I wouldn't say that, - No.

  • - because I'm very proud to be British,

  • but all my friends were like, what?

  • Even my American friend was like, what?

  • I do think there are perks to being American.

  • - What are the perks?

  • - Can't remember. - Just a bit.

  • - I just think it's quite cool,

  • I think Americans are quite cool,

  • I actually really like the accent.

  • - It's cool to be American in London, isn't
