This is fairly gas, so it is.

New movie Belfast, directed by Kenneth Branagh, and starring Jamie Dornan, has been making waves and receiving incredible reviews. As such, Kenneth Branagh appeared on The Late Late Show with James Corden last Friday night, to talk about his new film.

However, Nicki Minaj appeared on the show before Kenneth Brannagh did, and in honour of his appearance, James Corden asked Nicki to give the Northern Irish accent her best shot. You can check it out below by skipping in at nine minutes. Spoiler alert: we are wheezing.

Corden asks Minaj to say "Get out now" in her best Belfast accent, and to be fair to her, she doesn't do a bad job at all. Corden then adds on "so it is" to which Minaj mimics perfectly, although I'll be honest, neither of their "so it is" impression is quite as good.

Even so, who knew Nicki Minaj could do such a stellar Belfast accent? We are shook.
