The United States has provided the United Kingdom with its greatest export, MTV's 'Jersey Shore.'

The British version, called 'Geordie Shore,' tracks the lives of eight young people with a worldview similar to the Jersey cast - namely fighting, partying and hair gel.

After the jump, check out an epic video clip introducing the brand-new cast.

Urban Dictionary defines a geordie as someone from suburban Newcastle who "tend to believe they are at the top of the social scale but are in fact in the middle of the social security benefit queue." Harsh. Maybe the show will unite people on both sides of the Atlantic in their laughable distaste for fake suntans.

'Geordie Shore' debuts May 24 on MTV UK.
