AHA MEDIA at the 25th anniversary of Tim Hortons Roll Up the Rim to Win event in Vancouver

 

Over  47 million prizes this year are what Canadians can look forward to winning from Tim Hortons during the 25th anniversary of Roll Up

To celebrate the 25th anniversary of Roll Up, Tim Hortons partnered with Harris/Decima to conduct a survey to determine how many Canadians can roll their r’s. Surprisingly, only 56 per cent of Canadians can roll their r’s—who knew!

Some interesting stats found for Vancouver:

·         32% of British Columbians cannot roll their ‘r’

·         Second highest percentage of Canadians who can roll their ‘r’ can be found in British Columbia-58%

·         25% of respondents in Vancouver felt those who speak Scottish would be best at rolling their ‘r’

·         26% of Vancouverites can roll their ‘r’ for a whole 6-10 seconds

Below is a photo and video of  Dr. Allison Benner, a linguist and phonetician, who speaks about the art and science of rolling your r.
