Man's dating profile goes viral for 'genius' impression of Kermit the Frog as Will Smith
Man gets cancelled on so takes himself on date

A woman in the US who changed her location to the UK on her dating app to hear "sexy British" voices didn't exactly get what she bargained for... but in the best way.

TikTok user @teamfreebritney who is based in New York City moved her dating location across the pond to the UK's capital London where she came across a man named Harry's profile.

"Changing your Hinge location to London so you can hear the sexy British voice prompts," she wrote in on-screen text while filming herself covering her face before revealing the profile she came across.

The 27-year-old from London used the app's voice prompt feature to demonstrate his "best celebrity impression," and it certainly did not disappoint.

Kersh decided to do his impression of Will Smith hitting Chris Rock at this year's Academy Awards - but added a comical twist by speaking in the voice of Muppets favourite Kermit the Frog.

"Ok here's what it would sound like if Kermit the Frog had slapped Chris Rock at the Oscars instead of Will Smith," he said at the beginning before channelling Kermit and said in the frog's voice: "Keep Miss Piggy's name out of your f***ing mouth."

Thorough entertained by the unique impression, @teamfreebritney felt that it was too good not to share with the internet and posted Kersh's prompt to TikTok where it quickly went viral.
