When telemarketing was a thing, her parents would love to pick up the phone and prank them. Her mother has a thick Israeli accent. So, she would pick up the phone and she would play a Russian babysitter in the house. As the telemarketer asks for Mr. Garner, she would speak in an accent pretending to be a foreign babysitter. She would inform the marketer, “No, no, parents all day work, work. They go out dinner with friends. And kids, all they want is McNuggets and pizza,” in an accent.
While everybody would be in the living room and as Julia would enter, her mother would give her the signal to go near. “Hold on, now there’s took birds flying all over the floor, everywhere,” as her mother would say this, it was her clue. And she would make a sound of the bird “just squeaking”.
No wonder Julia Garner can speak in various accents and make it look as if she’s a natural. Well, eventually the telemarketers would have gotten the idea of the prank so, they stopped calling. It made them all very upset, but at least they had fun while it lasted.
