The Jersey Shore kids are showing off their acting chops in a new Funny or Die spoof.
In the video, featuring Mike ("The Situation,") Nicole ("Snooki") and Pauly D, the cast members start out as their usual crazy selves, when suddenly they stop cold after Mike says, "I cannot bear this any longer," in a very different tone of voice.
Before you know it, all three are speaking in full, proper English (Pauly D even tries to swing some form of British accent) and Mike puts on a pair of glasses and whips out a cane. Mike expresses how distraught he is about the act he's forced to put on for Jersey Shore because it's killing him inside. But the other two manage to console him.
"Every time you lift your shirt, you're lifting America's spirits," says Pauly D.
