Scottish Comedian Tries to Say ‘Purple Burglar Alarm’

When Scottish comedian Limmy heard that there are some Scottish people who can’t say the rather odd, but valid English phrase “purple burglar alarm”, he went ahead and tried it himself. He did this several times during his Twitch stream and even removed his headphones in order to hear himself. Unfortunately, Limmy also had difficulty with the phrase, thus proving his own point.
