One of the characters that Tom Hanks plays in the upcoming Cloud Atlas has a Cockney accents and swears all the time. Promoting the movie on Good Morning America—a show which allows Cockney accents but not swearing—Hanks was asked to reprise the character.

Vargas’ reaction is hilarious. Here’s the video.
