I bet a ton of the people watching this don’t even know who Jane Austen is

LetMeRave TV says:

buzzfeed be like: Things a tub of peanut butter does that would be weird if
you did them 

Jelle van Merrienboer says:

This seems to be based purely on the 2005 adaptation of Pride and
Prejudice, not very diverse.
Also, that hat would be way less weird if you just tied the ribbon

darkangelscruffy says:

The “let’s take a turn about the room” one, was the only thing sort of
funny about this… the rest was just desperate reaching (and really just

Jesus Mosqueda says:

My fat bitch teacher loved this women so now I can’t look at this video
without wanting to throw up

Natalie P says:

Lol I always thought taking a “turn about the room” was the weirdest thing
I’d ever heard of

Will Currie says:

Yeah there’s a reason for the differences seeing as Jane Austin hasn’t been
alive for years, this would have been acceptable behaviour at the time.
Jeez Buzzfeed you need to work on something 

MirroRMimi says:

Why are people saying this is stupid because it was a different time
period? NO SHIT SHERLOCK. In the video of “things football players do that
would be weird if you did them” it’s normal for them to do them, for you
it’s not. THAT’S THE POINT.

TheSimplydar says:

It would be weird if they performed a ballroom dance in the club.

Janice Corncez says:

Who wants to do a collab Chanel

Devinne Nicole says:

The reason it would be “weird” is because it’s a different CULTURE and TIME

Eli Neugeboren says:

Most of these are only “weird” cause of these were different times in a
different place
