Warning - Fake Irish accent alert - American ads about our corporation tax will make you cringe

Ireland has a low corporation tax, that much isn't news. What is new is the Americans openly mocking it in satirical videos.

A new series of short clips have appeared online coming from the RATE Coalition, a collection of businesses, associations and other like-minded groups that are looking to reform the tax code in the US.

The advocacy group is fed up with US companies moving abroad to pastures new boasting lower corporation tax rates.

The videos follow a fairly routine format. Something Irish to begin with, followed by "unlike the US's corporation tax rate".

Have a look at the videos below.
