    That was pretty good, Couldn't stop laughing at the German one. His SA accent was middle-class Johannesburg style...Not everyone sounds that terrible :p

    Lol the dude is amazing. Eventhough it's obviously exaggerated and not 100% correct you could immediately recognize what accent he was talking.
    His "German" accent is hilarious :D
    The indian reminded me so much of my stay in London, we actually met like five people sounding like natives. All others had either chinese, thai or indian accents :lol:

    I felt the Australian one wasn't great but the others were spot on.. I'm sure everyone feels this way about their respective accent. Very stereotyped but fkn hilarious.

    I thought the Scottish one was way off, barely even recognisable.

    When speaking English:

    Love: proper and northern Irish, Scottish, all of the English accents besides Welsh, German (not Bavarian), Swedish, soft southern US (Georgia minus ebonics/urban Atlanta type shit), non-over the top Australian and Kiwi accents.

    Hate: French, Spanish (proper & Catalan), Mexican, French, Bavarian, Welsh, Russian, French, midwest US (Minnesota, Wisconsin, etc), all Asian accents, heavy New York/Chicagoan, French, and French.


    Absolutely no idea what you guys are talking about with the "sorority accent" - girls all over the country are in whororities and there is no single accent that they all have. By "aind" I assume you mean the dumb-as-shit/thick-as-bricks southern accents?

    Nope, its hard to explain but it's definitely not a southern/regional thing.
    I'll try and find a video...

    Edit: Fuck trying to find "and" as a keyword in a search engine

    Its similar to the way Americans say "god" as "gaad"

    I think they're talking about "Jersey shore" style accents.

    has something to do with the fact that is a bit more obvious when the British do it due to their exaggerated vowels. Makes the letters they skip stand out like a sore thumb.

    They are talking about the dumb as dirt preppy girls that say shit like, "oh my gawd" extremely exaggerated.

    What is this British accent you speak of? I don't think you could find a (largely monolingual) country with more diverse accents.

    This isn't perfect, but it's surprisingly hard to find a goof example. She does it right at the start and then the rest if her 'and's are normal.
