Well I still remember when I asked my (very British) uncle in Portsmouth why my cousin pronounced "either and neither" in an American way. Five words reply "New Kids On The Block" and a gaze of disgust. 8)

OTOH American TV even tried to remake Coupling to make it understandable for the masses! (OMFG!)

UPDATE: OK I have to admit this might be just temporary phenomenons - recently the number of girls in France and Israel choosing German at school raised significantly because of a boy group ... this effect might diminish after puberty has finished. =)
