    LOL! I just can't even...

    And I've heard really gringo accents from both Americans and Brits trying to speak Spanish. This one takes the cake so far.

    I get a kick out of Cubans trying to sound Mexican, and vice versa.

    Gringo accents are overrated and annoying, and lack depth.

    LOL! That's pretty hard to pull off considering Cuban and Mexican accents sound so different from one another!

    Even though I have Mexican ancestry, I cannot imitate any kind of Mexican accent without making it sound exaggerated. Doesn't come naturally to me.

    But really, this dude kills me. Oh, and he's supposed to be "straight" in this short film icon_wink.gif

    I've heard some pretty heavy accents in my day. I had a professor who spoke Spanish with a similar accent and it drove me nuts, but then again accents are one of those things people only have so much control over.

    I don't think the accent in this video is authentic though...he doesn't sound American when he speaks English, so I think he's imitating an exaggerated Gringo/North American accent. He does a pretty good imitation though!

    You're right it's not. "Peter" is actually Sergio Goco, a native roteƱo. I can only imagine the bloopers and outtakes trying to act this out with that accent, haha.

    yourname2000 saidYeah, I've checked out their software and tried it out....really cool. Still, long term time investment to get to comprehension. icon_confused.gif But it's better than my plan though, which was to hang out at taco shops and try to pick up the language. Unfortunately, in Vancouver, they're all owned by Chinese people. icon_cry.gif

    /jk!


    Give it time! I mean, with Arizona cracking down on illegal immigration, surely some of those people will want to escape northward instead of going back south of the border icon_wink.gif

    You know what's funny? I just found out only a few months ago that "gabacho" is a synonym for "gringo". In Spain, "gabacho" is a pejorative for French people or people who speak French. Their term for Anglos is "guiri". That's how I always knew it until recently icon_lol.gif

    I must say that I am a fan of hearing Romanians and Italians speak Spanish. Their accent in the language is quite intriguing icon_redface.gif

    I kinda wish they had made fun of Brits instead of Americans because there are many, many more British expats in Spain and they never ever learn Spanish despite living in the country for years, lol. Maybe that will be the next short film!
