English is such a "rich" language with all of our nonsensical sayings, it is no wonder that an immigrant is so often confused.

    I wonder if this guy is trying to be the new Borat. Wouldn't it be funny if he turns out to be an American who has mastered this accent for self promotional purposes.

Having now watched several video's I highly doubt his German status....

As an immigrant to the UK I can however confirm the confusions with the language. One of my favourites is Reading and reading, both spelled the same way but pronounced entirely differently why??? no-one can tell me!
