If that's the case, it's the worst fake french I've ever heard. (Pink Panther with Steve Martin, anyone?)

I think she is trying to fake French. The name Yoplait has a French pronunciation.

Has anyone here actually figured out what her accent is yet? I'm still seeing these a few times a day and I don't want to seem "ignant". Confused

I love France.

I HATE this commercial.

Years ago a hair stylist, who was from France, told me she couldn't stand the old Roc commercials with the fake accents. ("Wouldn't it be easier to hire a real French person?") I guess if it grates on us, it must be many times worse for French people to hear it. Another French person told me her pet peeve was to hear French people who worked here (such as a restaurateur) exaggerating their accents to appeal to customers.

Finally, a commercial that I legitimately hate vs. just mildly annoying me. Can't stand the chick, her stupid whatever-that's-supposed-to-be accent, her boy haircut, the hipster quirkiness, any of it. A truly awful commercial. Yoplait has even disabled the comments section on these highly downvoted ads because they were getting slammed for them.

"I'll make it a point to buy another brand."
"will never buy this product again because commercial makes me nauseous"

Yeah, that might be overreacting a little too much right there... LOL

PaWolf, I don't think it's still true that the French don't bathe enough or use deodorant. I don't know how old you are, you say you spent part of your youth in France, but I'm guessing I'm older than you or maybe around the same age. I spent extensive time in different countries of Europe (not France, though) over a period of 25 years, and I noticed a big difference in personal hygiene in that span of time. Shaving, though, as you say, wasn't done on such a grand scale as here in the US, it's more of cultural thing, I guess. Americans seem to be repulsed more by body hair than most other cultures.Wink

^I spent part of my youth growing up in France, along return trips to their fabled country later in life, for professional purposes. We let them live for a reason - not only are some of them nice (even though they weren't familiar with the fine arts of bathing, shaving (women), and using deodorant), they are also excellent cooks and I like good food. Leave 'em alone (and besides being kinda cute, doncha know, she reminds me of someone...(see 'thoughts' at this clicky to see SheWee Herman===>>>Direct Link To This Post).

Wow, then she's really French? That's how French people talk? Not like any French person I've every heard. But the ones I know all speak English very well so I guess I shouldn't compare. 

Just goes to show that real French people can be annoying as f*ck as well as the phony ones!

I was in a class with 2 French girls years ago, and this one on the commercial sounds pretty much like they did. I read that the voiceover is done by a French-speaking woman, so I guess this IS what it should sound like. Wink

I usually like women with French accents, but this sounds like marble mouth gibberish. If this is a french accent, then my pet tribble poops gold nuggets.

Funny you should mention that. Thinking the same thing. She does sound "touched." No offense to my French friends but, the French accent along with most of the NYC and New England Accents are grating like fingernails against the chalk board. And this voice his shrill and annoying. She reminds me of a challanged hipster lipstick Lesbian with a French accent.
I approve this message.

I agree with Darth. The Yoplait woman looks nothing like Lisa Kudrow. The Yoplait woman looks much more like Audrey Hepburn than Lisa Kudrow. She even has the quirky Audrey thing going on. If you had said they are using a woman who slightly resembles Audrey Hepburn to push Yoplait, it would have been so much more acceptable than mentioning Lisa Kudrow. Edit. The Yoplait woman's name is Phoebe Neidhart. Sure, Lisa played a woman named Phoebe on Friends, but that's where the comparison ends.
My name is Donathan, pronounced the same way you pronounce Jonathan, except with a D. :D $608 for her brother's scooter. Fair is fair my ass. Being tough on Public Access TV is priceless.

Maybe there is some new additive in the "25% less sugar" Yoplait that affects speech.  That would explain everything.  Wink  Just sayin'...  LOL

It's not Lisa Kudro.
It's not a fake accent.

I don't care what Yoplait says...that's Lisa Kudrow.   She's married to a Frenchman, she speaks French and she's done other Yoplait commercials.

That commercial finally drove me freaking batty enough to post instead of just read how annoyed other people are by crappy commercials!
