Growing up, many of us were taught to speak with an American accent, thanks to the popularity of Hollywood-produced shows and cartoons on local TV. But here's a reminder that we really shouldn't force it: Did you know that the Filipino accent was ranked as the 21st sexiest in the world? And the first in Asia! Who would've thought?

Of course, if you were expecting this little fun fact to slip past Pinoys and our ability to make jokes about anything and everything, what were you thinking? Lol. ICYMI: The Filipino Accent took on a life of its own in the form of a Tiktok challenge, and the videos are hilarious. Check out this Summit Originals video below for proof:

Just remember that while it's totally okay to laugh at ourselves (it's a skill, tbh), there's absolutely no reason to embarass people for whatever accent they have. So go and embrace your own, and keep those entries coming!
