British vs. American Brand Pronunciations

I discovered an article on BBC America’s website about how Brits and Americans pronounce brand names differently and am surprised by some.

I hope you will find the article as informative and entertaining as I did. See how the pronunciation of the country opposite to the one you were raised in feels flowing out of your mouth.
