I’ll admit it – I love BuzzFeed. I’m a sucker for the creative lists with funny .gifs. Sure, the journalistic integrity of the subject matter is debatable, but the content is still funny y’all.
So a hot minute ago, my sister and her boyfriend came over on a Friday night, and after a few glasses of wine the boyfriend asks me “So have you seen the video of non-Southern people drinking bourbon for this first time?”
“Why no!” I replied. We popped up the iPad, poured another round, and had an outright giggle fest. After further review, I learned this video wasn’t in fact by BuzzFeed. It’s still hilarious though.
So after a bit of research (and a lot of laughs) watching BuzzFeed’s Taste Test series available on YouTube, I present to you the 5 best BuzzFeed Videos About the South.

Now, from a girl who was raised by parents who were born and bred in North Carolina, I was very pleased to see they distinguished between the two very different types of “Carolina” style BBQ. I’ve never had the Burnt Ends in Kansas City sauce, so I gotta get me some of that.
What are some of your favorite moments from BuzzFeed’s videos about the South?
This is fantastic y’all!
