An American woman has exposed just how different the US is by opening up about common UK household items she doesn't recognise.
Apparently, they don't have kettles in the US!
Titling the video, 'Common things in a UK house I've never seen before,' the TikToker gives her followers a tour of the house – or what is probably better described as a mansion – she is staying in, starting off by noting the 'weird metal bars' that can be located in some people's bathrooms.
Yes, she means the towel rail, which can sometimes be heated.
Yorke goes on to exclaim, 'Every outlet also has an on and off switch which is kind of fun. And apparently every pool in the UK is underground, that's why you never see them.'
Because pools are so 'common' in the UK, right?
The TikToker was also left baffled by the 'weird metal pot' she discovered in the kitchen. 'Not sure what it's for,' she said.
Who knew a kettle was such a rare find?
'And every bathroom I found has two buttons on it, depending on what you do,' Yorke explained.
She concluded, 'And lastly, the worst one, guys, literally Marmite, what is this?'
The video has been viewed more than 1.2 million times and has had TikTok users flooding to the post in stitches over the American's confusion. One said, 'She did not just say a weird metal pot.'
Another commented, 'Pretty sure this is a joke ... Right? ... its a joke isn't it? it has to be a joke?'
A third said, 'Did you just say..... MARMEET?'
TikTok isn't the only platform that has been utilised to expose just how different the two countries are.
Reddit threads not only revealed Americans and Brits' contrasting ways in which to celebrate Christmas, but also the US's bafflement over how far people in the UK tend to walk, with the idea of a 30-minute walk home leaving one particular American utterly confused.
Perhaps even more scandalous than Yorke not knowing what a kettle was, is the heated debate over whether the US or UK version of hit comedy series The Office reigns supreme.
