His cadence drifts into his native Italian from time to time, but otherwise very impressive.

Yep.  I love that song.

I was too creeped-out by the first 10 seconds of that to watch the rest.

I know that lots of Spanish-speakers notice how we end so many words in the "-ation" sound. On Sábado Gigante, there's a character called La Cuatro who imitates English and says things like, "Mírame la cosation."

Joe Rogan had this video on his podcast about a year ago.  wonder how old the video actually is.

/and just as rogan did, i'll note how this sounds like pretty much every bob dylan record

There was a Swedish Farker awhile back that said we Americans all sound like Yosemite Sam.

Actually, I think we get by pretty well, based on this.

So Bob Dylan then? I always wondered about that.
 
2013-05-05 05:44:12 PM
Wow. Whoever branded that with their YouTube tag deserves a major slapping. There's other clips on YouTube, and elsewhere, that are not bastardized.

I have to say, that was actually pretty badass.  I'm not the least bit offended, because the cadence was dead on... so I'll just keep right on mocking the world's other languages, since this is comparable to what I do.

Came for the Ken Lee reference.  Leaving satisfied.

I hate to say it, but Asian languages are fun to mock. The tonal ones are hilarious. Better have our fun now before we're all working for the Chinese.

I've always loved this song...  *ties on go-go boots*
 
2013-05-05 06:17:47 PM
That's awesome...pretty catchy, too.

This is still my favorite example of English-sounding nonsense lyrics (albeit, in this case, sung by an English speaker)

How DARE they mock English, the language Jesus chose to write the Holy Bible in!?!

There is this vid by "Miss Lin" that is supposedly hilarious - she is making fun of Tawainese media stars who like to throw in American words and use American style pronunciation of Chinese (e.g. toneless) to appear cool.

HAAA!  Tears in my eyes, I'm laughing so hard!  *sniff* REAL laughs, too---not just LOL's and such. Man. That was good.

/thanks for the link
//Back in middle school I mistook my Chinese friend for being Japanese (hell, how would I know).  He responded:
"I am NOT Japanese. I am Chinese".   That moment left a serious impact on me which I came to realize, over time, how it's little comments like those made when young have turned into positive lessons learned.

Too much "Ok", not enough "Like".

Still pretty cool.

Wow. THIS ONE again? It's been a couple of years but this was a regular story here for a loooooong time.

I was heard that to non-speakers English sounds like barking dogs.

Seems about right
 
2013-05-05 08:45:33 PM
ahhh, just as amusing this time around as the first 300 times I've seen this video posted. Hey mods, you seen the picture yet of the squirrel with the nuts... so funny!
 
2013-05-05 08:51:57 PM
Oh look, it's *these comments again*.

Strange. I visit Fark several times a week, and I too often I am "that guy", but I've never seen this vid before, and enjoyed it.

So, thanks, reklamfox

I think he really nailed it.

I work in tourism, so I hear lots of languages.

Japanese sounds like huggabuggaruhruh.

Vietnamese sounds like boing boing boing boing.
