    The Australian one sucked, but of course I'm Aussie and I should know, but was good enough for someone who can do 24 different accents !

    He needs to edit out the first minute where he's over explaining the mechanics of randomness in the content of his conversations.

    the south african accent in the first video made me laugh so hard.. I know they don't all sound like that but I thought he was quite spot on. It makes me think of the movie District 9 all over again... "they look like prawns".

    to be more accurate he should say it's the south african afrikaans accent. i don't sound like that at all lol. he's def got it from district 9

    haha yeah I know, there's plenty of South Africans & Zimbabweans in Australia & NZ, many of which I've made and kept friends with. There's something about the harsh Afrikaans accent which just makes me giggle and laugh. I used to work with a South African who was pretty much straight off the boat, and he would tell me how much Australiand & NZers would 'sing' when they speak - as in would raise our voices/tone towards the end of the sentences, especially with the women. He then went on to say that the South Africans speak the Queen's english which is where I couldn't contain myself any longer and burst out laughing. There's no way he spoke the Queen's english, in fact he butchered it perhaps even more than Australians & NZers do.

    It was impressive overall. The Chinese accent was a bit off-the-mark, however.

    nah he wasn't Afrikaans he definitely had a more English influence to his accent, but still had the typical SA pronunciation of vowels and words... along with the arrogance too icon_razz.gif (just kidding)

    We have a girl from SoCal living with us at the moment.. well she is originally from Boston but spent time in SoCal and unfortunately picked up the annoying accent. It's like we speak a completely different language - we are both constantly having to ask each other to repeat what we've said.. usually with me having to slow down my speaking haha.
